Live panel debate on how charities are adapting to the impact of COVID-19

A video conference call for Relay by Raw London

For the first time ever, Relay will take place as an online panel discussion. Organised and hosted by creative agency, Raw London.

This is an unprecedented time for all sectors. Following what has been a challenging few years, the third sector is now facing its own set of unique challenges. As marketing, fundraising and communications teams race to pivot and re-invent their strategies, what questions are they asking themselves? Should all medium and long-term plans be put on hold in favour of emergency appeals?

Join our exclusive online panel discussion at 4pm on Thursday 23 April 2020, as we invite third sector fundraisers and marketers to give an insight into how their organisations are dealing with the crisis.

From innovating on new platforms to mobilising existing communities, you’ll learn how charities are responding, and walk away with fresh inspiration for your own campaigns.
