Press Release – The Power of Social Media! Charity Wins Free Stand At Yorkshire Business Market

               

A Harrogate charity which promotes employer supported volunteering across the district will be displaying its services at a major business conference next month. (Monday, April 30)

Harrogate and Ripon Centres for Voluntary Service was one of scores of organisations to enter a social media competition to win a free stand at the Yorkshire Business Market.

Now in its fourteenth year, the Yorkshire Business Market is one the biggest networking events for businesses across Yorkshire with keynote speakers, seminars and plenty of networking opportunities.

The Yorkshire Business Market is being staged at Pavilions of Harrogate, on Monday, April 30, and organisers are confident it will be as successful as last year’s sell out event that attracted more than 1,000 visitors.

The opportunity to appear at the event could not come at a better time for the charity, which has just launched a new “local fund” initiative. Run in  partnership with Harrogate Borough Council and Two Ridings Community Foundation, it aims to put businesses in contact with the voluntary and community sectors.

Harrogate and Ripon Centres for Voluntary Service Chief Executive Karen Weaver said: “We are absolutely delighted to be able to part in this year’s Yorkshire Business Market. As a small, local charity, our resources don’t normally stretch to being an exhibitor.

“We need to raise awareness of the Local Fund to professional advisors, and also engage with businesses to find out more about how they can get involved, as it’s not just about making donations.

“We want to develop more employer supported volunteering across the District, as there is so much potential for mutual benefits for businesses and charities.

“Being at the Business Market will give us the opportunity to meet a wide range of business representatives, and gain valuable insights into the ways in which the Local Fund can build successful relationships with businesses on behalf of the local voluntary and community sector.”

Yorkshire Business Market Chairman Mark Lancaster said: “We are thrilled for Harrogate and Ripon Centres for Voluntary Service in winning our competition. It is a fantastic organisation which has been in existence for more than five decades.

“The competition proved to be a huge hit, and thanks to the power of social media, it has helped to promote The Yorkshire Business Market far and wide.”

The focus of this year’s event is Alternative Business Funding and the headline partner is Hornbeam Park Developments.
