The Third Sector Podcast #12: Festive Bonanza

Rebecca and Emily look back on the charity sector's big moments of 2019

It’s the end of the year, and the latest podcast reflects on some of the big moments of 2019 for the charity sector. 

Third Sector's Rebecca Cooney and Emily Burt share a glass of Baileys with editor Andy Hillier and Last Word columnist Debra Allcock Tyler, and offer reflections and predictions for charities as we move into a new decade. 

Editorial assistant Natasha Abramson speaks to Clic Sargent’s Adam Petrie and the founder of Brand By Me, Collette Phillips, about what makes a brilliant Christmas advert. We hear why the children’s cancer charity decided to take a sober approach to its Christmas messaging this year. 

And Alisa Hall, head of programmes at Pilotlight, the charity that provides business support, talks to Rebecca about a new mentoring programme that offers funding and professional support to 20 charities.
