Friends of Bournemouth Leukaemia Fund Spring Lunch
Read More ...
Time : 12.30 pm, Thursday, 27th April
Location : The Mayfair Hotel, Bath Road, Bournemouth
Type of Event : Fundraising

Friends of Bournemouth Leukaemia Fund regularly arrange events to support the lifesaving work carried out by doctors and scientists working for Bournemouth Leukaemia Fund. The registered charity was founded in 1984 and since then has regularly won international awards for its research as well as helping cancer patients at the Royal Bournemouth Hospital achieve better outcomes. The charity can now help all cancer patients, not only those with leukaemia and other blood disorders due to a donation by the Friend Committee in 2015 which resulted in the acquisition of a Next Generation Sequencer, a state of the art piece of equipment not available on the National Health Service locally and indeed the salaries, other equipment and maintenance of the Research Laboratory is not funded by the NHS. Please help this so worthwhile local charity. It does not have any paid fundraisers.

Time : 10 am- 4.15 pm

Mentoring young creatives (both formally and informally) is vital to our work with young people. Excellent mentoring enhances skills through supportive relationships, encourages space for self-directed learning and helps shape behaviours which in turn encourage growth and development in others.

Exploring the principles of mentoring, you will be equipped with the tools to support the next generation of creative practitioners and leaders.
You will gain:
• A practical framework for best practice mentoring
• Knowledge about the principles which shape great mentoring
• Personalised mentoring advice
• Tips on how to plan and evaluate a mentee’s development, as well as your own
• Practical mentoring techniques
