OK, now I'm confused.  Was this an NGO event (as in the above, in
which case I don't care that much but can think of some people I would
have told) or a Third Sector event (as the article suggests)?  If it
was meant to be a third sector event, it's pretty shameful that the
national union for cooperative and mutual enterprises, Cooperatives
UK, seems not to have been told - cooperatives and mutuals are a very
big part of the third sector, but the NGO/NPO/CIC part seems inclined
to forget us.

Any way, I'm glad it went well for those who did know about it.  I'd
suggest including any future events in the FSFE newsletter.
