Jurek Owsiak and the Great Orchestra of Christmas Charity Foundation appeal to the Australian Collection Centres to utilize their Grand Finale fundraising resources to support the efforts to help victims of bushfires in Australia.
International Collection Centre Convention in Brussels
This unofficial convention is a great opportunity for all of us to meet the people who are giving their absolute best and make our success go global. It is also a great opportunity to network, exchange experiences and share ideas and good practices. We are also delighted by the fact that our meeting has the patronage of European Parliament - a high honour indeed!
We will meet the representatives of Collection Centres from Belgium, Germany, Norway, England, Scotland, Jersey, the US, France, the Netherlands, and Ireland. We hope that this meeting will bring about a lot of new ideas and will foster new friendships and will allow our international Collection Centres to grow and develop their initiatives!
28th Grand Finale is filled with exciting novelties. Apart from moving to a new location, we will, for the first time, we break with tradition and move the date of our charitable run to January the 11th - but we have more news about the Get Even with Diabetes race!
With Grand Finale looming on the horizon (not long to go before we celebrate the biggest fundraising drive in the country!), some Collection Centres are already holding fundraising events and Collection Boxes are displayed on business premises and shops.
