About this Event

At this networking event you will have the opportunity to meet the PICNIC and Sporting Capital teams and hear about some real case studies of community organisations we have supported. We will also explain how you can apply for investment and partner with us.

The £3.3m PICNIC fund offers investments between £25,000 and £150,000 to eligible organisations with a social or environmental mission that deliver services in urban greenspaces. We expect to make 60 investments over the next 4 years, mostly directed across three cities, starting in Newcastle. Organisations we work with receive wrap around mentoring support from our partners at the National Trust.

Sporting Capital is a £3m social investment fund that focuses on supporting the development of community sports organisations into sustainable community sport businesses. We can provide sports organisations, social enterprises, charities and profit-with-purpose businesses within England with loan funding of between £50,000 and £150,000.

Lunch will be provided.
