BCL signs up to Forever Manchesters Manchester Millions Business Club
BCL Legal has joined Forever Manchester’s & lsquo;Manchester Million Business Club’.
The company will be staging a series of fundraising events and initiatives throughout the next 12 months.
The organisation decided to support Forever Manchester, a community foundation, because of the charity’s commitment to providing wide ranging support to small community groups across the region and its focus is on helping bringing people together and making them feel better about where they live.
James Batt, managing director of BCL Legal said, “We started our business in Manchester so we have a passion and commitment for the city. Forever Manchester does an amazing job by empowering communities so we’re now looking forward to getting involved and hopefully make a difference.”
Manchester Million members pledge to donate or fundraise (including through referrals) at least £1,000 to help Forever Manchester to support the vital work of grassroots projects at the heart of local communities.
The Manchester Million proposition helps a company to deliver the local element of its corporate social responsibility agenda – making a long-lasting contribution to groups near where member companies are based and where their staff live.
There are 57 community foundations across the UK and Forever Manchester is the community foundation that represents Greater Manchester, supporting all ten boroughs.
