Bondholder Derby Conference Centre hosted an event with not-for-profit, business-led organisation Business in the Community (BITC) to connect charities and businesses together.
Amongst the 17 selected charities who were chosen at random to have a stand from those who applied were Bondholders Derby Institute of Sport, Derbyshire Children’s Holiday Centre, Treetops Hospice and YMCA.
Other charities included Age UK, Tegan’s Butterflies, Faith Hope & Enterprise, The Prince’s Trust, Valley CIDS, Me & Dee, Upbeat Communities, CHICKS,
DHA, Rosie May Foundation, Twenty Twenty, Alzheimer’s Society and BBO Towards Work Programme.
It was an ideal opportunity for charities to showcase their work and promote upcoming events.
In his final engagement as BITC's Prince's Ambassador for the East Midlands and, former Deputy Managing Director for bondholder Toyota Manufacturing UK Tony Walker CBE spoke about the importance of businesses and charities working together.
Talking to guests from charities and businesses he said: "Responsible business is good business and together we can achieve so much for the good of the community we are based in which in turn benefits our businesses."
