#LLL17 Charity Fundraising

We are very pleased to announce that we will be continuing our fundraising efforts at Lead, Learn, Lancs. Last year we raised money for Edlumino, the charity that keynote speaker Natalie Scott was working with in the refugee camps in France. This year, given the many horrific events that have taken place across the UK in recent months, we felt that it was fitting to support charities which help support our emergency services personnel. To that end, our chosen charities are:

These three charities all work to support serving and retired police, firefighters and ambulance officers in a variety of ways. Importantly, all three provide mental health support to those who are in need.

We will be donating any unused funds from ticket sales, and also having a raffle on the day. We already have exciting prizes donated by A Tale Unfolds, Lynn McCann, Classroom Secrets, Hyndburn and Ribble Valley NUT and more. If you would like to donate a prize, please bring it with you to #LLL17 or get in touch.


#LLL17 is sold out!

We do have a small wait list, and will try to get as many people there on the day as we can. Please keep an eye out in case further tickets are released.

Accommodation Options

We’re aware that many speakers and delegates may be travelling some distance to attend #LLL17 (and we’re so grateful!). We are in the process of investigating block booking accommodation in Blackburn, as it is easily accessible by train and easy to then travel on to the conference. There are also a lot more food options available for those without their own transport than hotels closer to Rhyddings.

If you are interested in finding out more, please contact Sarah Bedwell (@FlyMyGeekFlag) and let her know. Details will then be finalised and passed on so that delegates can book their own accommodation using the discounted rate.

We’re pleased to announce, after having to sadly postpone #LLL17 already, that it will now take place on Saturday 30 September. We’re working on confirming a few more speakers before we start releasing information – we’ll post it when we can.
