Guests talk across the table at an OCF event at Broughton Castle
EVENTS

At OCF, we hold a small number of our own events aimed at our supporters and corporate partners. However, the team can regularly be found out and about attending key events in the charitable sector locally, as well as connecting with businesses and other influencers as speakers, participants or stallholders. Please do come and find us at one of the following events, where we will be present.

We also occasionally hold small, select get-togethers for our valued supporters, generously hosted by our patrons and trustees.

 

Our fortnightly Zoom webinar agenda is given on our homepage. Details will be added to the individual event pages too.

  • “I give for a mixture of motives: I do it to make my life more interesting; I do it to make myself feel a better person. I do it because I can; to have the pleasure associated with mixing with the people whose fields I support. I do it for the dream of actually achieving something!”

  • “I opened a fund with OCF because of their knowledge, expertise and extensive contacts. I set this up now as I wanted to be part of it, to make my dream come true in helping the very young – the fund encompasses everything I’ve done in the past and expands the impact I’ve achieved”.
