The Princess Royal's charity forum

The Foundation was pleased to be included in the Princess Royal's Charity Forum at St James's Palace this week along with a further 80 of the 200 charities of which she is Patron. The event gave charities the opportunity to share some of the issues faced by the recent pandemic and to hear how charities are planning for the future.

It was reassuring to learn that the Wetwheels Foundation and our Operators struggled with many of the same challenges faced by other charities across all sectors, not least funding, and the need to raise core costs whilst coping with a reduction in revenue. It would seem all charities are pinning their hopes on a return to normality in 2022, let's hope so.
