Bradford Businesses On Board!

 

Supporters of GiveBradford were invited to take part in a unique event which brought to life some of the community projects and groups that have been funded by the foundation across the district.

The half day event supported by law firm LCF Law and bus company First West Yorkshire (who supplied the transport for the event) provided the opportunity for Bradford businesses and supporters to meet and engage with some of the inspirational groups that have benefitted from GiveBradford funding. The group visited projects that make a real difference to the lives of those that need it the most across the city and meeting those individuals that have benefited directly.

Susan Hinchcliffe, Leader of Bradford Metropolitan District Council hosted a welcome breakfast at The City Hall alongside Kate Hainsworth, Chief Executive of GiveBradford who talked about the importance of partnership and collaboration in the city. Kate said: “To attract ongoing support, it is vital that we make the link between our supporters and donors and GiveBradford’s role in distributing those funds to the groups that are delivering the most amazing work on the ground and reaching the people and communities that are most in need”.

Guests visited projects including Bradford Community Broadcasting (BCB), Eccleshill Adventure Playground (The Big Swing) and Karmand Community Centre.

Main sponsor LCF Law is celebrating 31 years in Bradford this year, Partner, Neil Shaw, said: “As a longstanding Bradford based business, this was a fantastic event to be involved with. It provided a valuable opportunity to visit and meet some of the local organisation’s that GiveBradford is making a genuine difference to and everyone we met had an interesting story to tell. It was hard not to feel inspired by this event, so we’re delighted to support them and it reinforces why the work that the 100 Club and GiveBradford does is so important.”
