Business Board sets ambitious £1M target for NSPCC
A new board of business leaders has formed in Bolton and
Bury to raise £1million in the next five years for the NSPCC.
The NSPCC Business Board for Bolton and Bury was founded by
Stuart Stead (Cowgill Holloway), Chris Houghton (Eventura), Val Allen (General
Welding Supplies) and Mark Hawthorn (Landmark Investments Group) to support the
ChildLine schools service in the local area, coordinate ongoing events and
promote the charity generally through their own business networks.
Primarily tasked with effecting business introductions as well as fundraising, the Business Board
has already recruited the support of Bolton Wanderers Football Club Community
Trust, with the Reebok Stadium confirmed to host a UK Boxing Association and
NSPCC dinner show on Saturday 7th April 2012. Business Board
founding member, Mark Hawthorn, will participate as one of the show’s white
collar boxers taking to the ring.
Stuart Stead, chairman of the Business Board, commented:
“Since the Board’s inception, we have gathered great momentum with our ideas
and support canvassing, and there is a real buzz amongst the members who are
excited and honoured to be involved with this worthy cause.”
“There are many benefits to being involved with the NSPCC
Board. We are aiming to make any relationships with businesses as reciprocal as
possible. We have created a range of initiatives for our Business Partners to
use, to generate additional income and profits within their businesses. Our
view is the more a partner can generate from their association with us, the
more they will ultimately contribute.”
