Networking Group supporting Community Foundation for Lancashire

The Business Network Central & East Lancashire has become a Lancashire Investor in the Community.

Community Foundation for Lancashire is an independent charity that promotes local giving to address local disadvantage that has distributed in excess of £16 million to charities and community groups in Lancashire since its launch in 2007.

Working as part of a national network of forty-six UK Community Foundations it provides strategic charitable advice and a robust grant-making service, which contributes to achieving maximum impact in local communities.

Becoming a Lancashire Investor in the Community, The Business Network Central & East Lancashire is a membership organisation, bringing together business leaders and decisionmakers in a structured lunch-based format that aims to help businesses connect and provide introductions for each other.

Its lunchtime events include an optional morning seminar, delivered by specialists from within the group on a range of topics from business strategy, growth and succession planning to personal development and mental health in the workplace.

The Business Network Central & East Lancashire director Karen Tems said: “We are especially pleased to become a Lancashire Investor in the Community. Community Foundation for Lancashire is one of a number of charitable organisations in the group, who we collectively raise funds for with events including our forthcoming Sparkly Christmas Event at Stanley House on 8th December.”

Community Foundation for Lancashire Development Manager Bonnie-Anne Phillips said: “The Business Network Central & East Lancashire is a very welcome new investor to Community Foundation for Lancashire.

“We offer our clients independent and professional advice on charitable giving, linking them to exceptional charities and small groups that are seeking funding and thereby connect, support and invest in Lancashire’s communities through charitable giving.

“Our membership of The Business Network Central & East Lancashire helps us to keep businesses informed of the services we offer and to connect with businesses interested in investing in the community in the most efficient way.”
