£220k Charity Call from BNI Lancashire

Business Network International is seeking charities to join its Lancashire groups as part of a £220k charity drive.

Part of the world’s biggest referral organisation, BNI has over 200,000 members in over 70 countries worldwide.  It works by organising weekly meetings for groups of businesses, known as chapters, who use their combined network of contacts to find business opportunities and referrals for one another.

The charity drive is the brand-child of BNI Executive Director Mike Holman and will see each chosen charity gifted a seat within a group and its members commit to raising £20k per year for it.  With eleven chapters operational in Lancashire, the offer equates to a £220k per year charity commitment by the organisation and its members in the county.

BNI was also recently calculated to have contributed over £130 million into the Lancashire economy in the last six years through its business generation processes.

BNI Executive Director Mike Holman said: “I am deeply passionate about BNI helping businesses to thrive and we have learnt over the years that our success comes from the dedication and commitment of our members.

“BNI members are demonstrably hardworking business people.  They get up early, they work productively and cooperatively, and are driven by the BNI ethos of Givers Gain. This charity drive is all about tuning into that energy and using it to give something back to the communities in which our members live and work.”
