Tamara's Visit To The UK

I’ve been working at the Belarusian Children’s Hospice in Minsk as a fundraiser since April 2010. A little while ago I had a great opportunity to visit London for a study tour at Richard House Hospice (RHH) aimed at getting me acquainted with the work of RHH and learning more about fundraising. RHH is twinned with BCH.

My programme at RHH included briefings with fundraisers who told me about their specific fields of work covering community fundraising, individual giving, trusts and statutory bodies, events and general means of fundraising. As we plan to open a charity shop in Belarus, I was very interested to see the RHH charity shop. One of the things which impressed me was meeting Harry. He had been in the care of RHH for 9 years and now works in the fundraising team running his own fundraising campaign.

This visit was extremely useful for my professional development. We have a saying, ‘It is better to see something once than to hear about it one hundred times’ and this proved to be true.
