Refreshment Costs

When it comes to delivering activities, the old mantra of “if you don’t ask you don’t get” can work. Regarding refreshments, if you have hired a venue, some venues will give you a reduced cost as you are a charity. Additionally, supermarkets have been known to donate to charities for tea, coffee and biscuits.

Local branches of the big 4 in Medway:
Tesco – Rainham - 0345 677 9300

Venue Hire Costs

When it comes to delivering activities, the old mantra of “if you don’t ask you don’t get” can work. Regarding venue hire, just ask if you can host an event for free or at a reduced cost just by asking (remember it looks good to the venue as they can say they host charities for free!).

Training Costs

The internet is full of free training resources, these links can help you search for the area of training you are looking after.

If you are looking to hire a trainer, remember the mantra of “if you don’t ask, you don’t get” – so it may be worth asking whether they can offer you a discount.
