Third Sector will be hosting a live stream of this year’s Once Upon I Wish I’d Thought of That, in which 20 leading fundraisers will give presentations on ideas that inspired them.

The event, organised by the Showcase of Fundraising Innovation and Inspiration, takes place in London tomorrow afternoon and will be streamed through the Third Sector website.

Speakers include Lucy Caldicott, director of fundraising at Clic Sargent, and the fundraising consultant Stephen Pidgeon.

Each speaker will give a seven-minute presentation on a fundraising idea they admire. Movember was voted the most inspiring fundraising campaign at last year’s event.

Ken Burnett, founder and managing trustee of the Sofii Foundation, took part in a Twitter Q&A last month ahead of the event.

Visit to watch the event live from 2pm on 6 June.

- The story originally said that Tanya Steele, director of fundraising at Save the Children, was among those giving presentations, as the Sofii website said, but she is no longer taking part.
