Match Funding Does your employer Fund Match? Do you work for a bank, supermarket or other large corporation? If so, they may operate a Fund Match scheme whereby you can claim money to match funding that we raise through the CPFA (which is a registered charity) at one of our events. This is often not well publicised so we’d really appreciate it if you could ask your HR department. If you are able to help in this way, please speak to Mrs Simpson, Mr Hart, any member of the CPFA or email louharrison@hotmail.co.uk Thank you for all your support.
