I've never been a confident public speaker, but I've just accepted a request to grovel pitch for funding for a project run by a group I'm involved with, whose remit is to help increase local food security, to which end it runs several local projects. One of these is a flower and produce show in August, which needs funding. We had a grant last year but we need ongoing support if the show is to run properly each year.Ah the memories... )

I'll be competing against three other worthy project and will have four minutes (i think) to win the audience's votes; I'm not confident at this point but I'll give it my best shot as long as I'm briefed properly; you know what they say, do something slightly challenging every day...

*gulp*

Update: We didn't win. Bugger!
