Date for 2020 – Wednesday 10th June
Pitch to the Panel is a dragons’ den style event where local charitable organisations can bid for a share of £100,000 towards a capital project or groundbreaking new service. This is a unique opportunity for charities to put their project forward in person and bid for a larger sum of money than is available through Greenham Trust’s reactive grant scheme. The event, at Newbury Corn Exchange, is a great opportunity for the local community to get together, find out more about the work of some local charities and help make a difference to the lives of others.
In 2019 we welcomed a new compere – Adam Kotz; a new panel:
- Dr Abid Irfan, BW CCG Clinical Chair
- Roland Gardner, Chief Executive, Newbury Building Society
- Gerry Lejeune, Chief Executive, Berkshire Community Foundation
- Jayne Woodley, Chief Executive, Oxfordshire Community Foundation
and introduced the golden ticket – where a member of the audience awarded £5000 to a project of their choice.

A new initiative for 2019 was the Golden Ticket. Every audience member was entered into a prize
draw to win the golden ticket and the lucky winner was invited to nominate a project or projects on The Good Exchange, with Greenham Trust’s area of operation, to receive a total of £5000 in funding
from Greenham Trust.
The winner was Colin Mansell from Children First International and he decided to award the full £5000 to Friends of Castle School towards their Outdoor Sports Track Project.
