Sorry this event has already taken place - please see our forthcoming events list
We are delighted to invite you to a special BGH Match event at Virgin Money for a morning of connecting with organisations looking to utilise their corporate volunteer days with third-sector organisations on the search for eager volunteers or looking to partner with charities.
Event attendees will be provided with name badges which identify if they are looking to engage with charities or whether they are a charity looking for support. To facilitate the networking, a list of attendees will be sent in advance including details of the skills organisations can offer or those which they require.
Although this event is open to everybody, it is aimed at those looking after CSR or volunteering within your organisation.
Representation from GC Business Growth Hub will be on hand to discuss the fully-funded business support and initiatives available to both businesses and third sector organisations.
We are delighted to be partnering with DKMS, a blood cancer charity whose long-term vision is to find a stem cell match for every one that needs one -we are a long way from that at the moment.
Every 20 minutes someone in the UK is diagnosed with a type of blood cancer. For many blood cancer patients, a stem cell transplant from a matching donor is their best, and sometimes only, chance of survival.
Within the event, attendees will have the optional opportunity to register themselves as a blood cancer donor through a simple swap as part of their ‘mass swab’ initiative.
