Property firm BB&J Commercial has chosen Safe and Sound, which supports children who are victims of or at risk of exploitation, as its charity of the year.

Based at The Wyvern, in Derby, BB&J has supported a number of local charities since it was established in 2010. It is now planning a range of fund-raising activities in the coming year for Safe and Sound.

Partner Mark Richardson also recently became a trustee the charity, which supports children and young people across Derbyshire who are victims of or at risk of child exploitation including online grooming, sexual exploitation, trafficking, drugs lines, modern slavery and radicalisation.

The charity also supports the wider family and raises awareness in local communities of the dangers facing young people.

Mark said: “BB&J Commercial are active members of the local business community and I was keen to get involved with Safe and Sound from a governance, education and fundraising point of view to help this incredible charity better connect across the city and county.

“I was delighted when colleagues agreed that we should all play our part in helping this charity to protect and support young people and their families in our local communities.”

To launch its year of fund raising, BB&J Commercial has joined the growing number of businesses and individuals who have sponsored a Hope Box, which is given to young people supported by Safe and Sound to help them in their journey to re-build their lives.

The Hope Box, designed by Derby-based personalised gift company Colleague Box, is filled with calming activities, treats and positivity messages.
