Collisions and connectedness are two of the fundamental tenets of our work here at Impact Hub Bradford, from connecting members to each other, to collaborations amongst our programme participants.
More recently, we’ve been cultivating relationships between sponsors and donors and considering what kind of match we could broker between individuals and organisations which donate to the Hub and members of our wider community.
So we’re really excited to announce the first sponsorship of one of our members, by a sponsor organisation – ITC, a locally based business communications provider and Green Street, an organisation that helps to develop greener British high streets and generate greater prosperity in the retail and hospitality sector.
ITC’s Managing Director, Nasar Hussain, has kindly sponsored Green Street founder Victoria Robertshaw‘s membership of Impact Hub and in turn their mission in working towards a greener Bradford.
Nasar was a special guest at our digital launch, back in October 2020. Even at such an early stage in Impact Hub’s journey, he was keen to support members and the Hub, noting that: “As a local business, I’m looking forward to working with social enterprises and really encourage more businesses to get involved.”
Recently, Green Street have partnered with First Bus to launch the Go Greener fund and have been developing #GreenStreetBradford, a pilot programme to inform future Green Street initiatives and formulate policy ideas to present to the Government, specifically tailored around SME retailer and consumer needs.
We’re very excited to accept Nasar and ITC’s support and pleased to see how this is translating into the vital and necessary work Green Street are undertaking for a more sustainable economy.
