You probably saw all the publicity surrounding Kate and William's visit yesterday; and the photos with Mary Berry. Well let's put in a plug for ACEVO member Ann Chalmers who runs Child Bereavement UK, who they were visiting.
It’s a great organisation, doing important work and demonstrating the value added that our sector brings. And a Royal visit can be such good value in raising morale and profile.
So when times are tough getting endorsement for our work is even more important and although I'm sure there were many plaudits for the organisation, volunteers, supporters and donors etc. it is the dedication and commitment of my CEO members who run these organisations that makes such a difference. In the week when we have seen some crap publicity on CEO pay, let's hear it for professionalism. Well done Ann.
