At the end of last year I joined the Board of Trustees for an incredible charity based in Bristol. The charity is One25. One25 reaches out to women trapped in street sex work, supporting them to break free and build new lives away from violence, poverty and addiction. Their work genuinely changes the lives of many women and their families and I am extremely proud to be able to support them in this.
I want to tell you about a business initiative that we are running in One25. The ‘Directors Challenge’ is a free day of……Team Building through dynamic problem solving and team collaboration, with top professionals from Bristol’s corporate world battling to ‘be the best’, all in aid of this fabulous cause.
Last year we worked with CM Group, Meade King Solicitors, the College of Law, Natwest and two departments from Lloyds TSB, all of whom found it hugely rewarding and have been really positive about the initiative:
“It was great to work together on something as positive and constructive as One25. I am sure everyone was delighted to have the opportunity to learn more about the charity and help in some small way.”

Alternatively, if you can help us to find suitable businesses to take part, that would be great. I really hope to hear from you as I genuinely believe this is an opportunity for you and your teams to benefit, in the name of a fabulous cause.
