‘Local Giving’, is a campaign that is spreading across London, aiming to bring communities together to tackle local issues and make a positive impact.
The Sutton Centre for the Voluntary Sector, working in partnership with London Borough of Sutton, has secured funding to create a Local Giving scheme in Sutton.
“We are keen for business people, who are passionate about our borough’s future and are committed to making Sutton a better place, to become involved,” said a spokesperson.
“The project is very much in its infancy and we’re currently determining local priorities to address within our borough whilst developing a distinct and memorable brand for Sutton Local Giving.
“We are looking for members of the business community to become Steering Group members or Ambassadors and help shape this initiative. We’re not asking for a huge time commitment, simply asking the business community to share their business skills and acumen to make a difference to our community.
“The Steering Group will meet on a monthly basis and ambassadors will be required to support our scheme on an occasional basis to help share Sutton Local Giving’s story and gain support.”
To express an interest, please send an email to Jenny O’Neill, Development Manager at Sutton Local Giving – Jenny@suttoncvs.org.uk – briefly outlining the skills you can add to our Local Giving Scheme. We are looking for representation from a cross-section of businesses including larger players as well as SMEs, businesses based in different areas of the borough and from a range of market sectors.
