Charity events support networking at Deep Business Centre

Staff and tenants at The Deep Business Centre raised hundreds of pounds for Macmillan Cancer Support by holding a bake sale and raffle.

Staff and tenants at The Deep Business Centre raised hundreds of pounds for Macmillan Cancer Support by holding a bake sale and raffle.

The event was part of the centre’s annual programme of fund-raising and networking activities designed to bring together business tenants and external business and social contacts.

Laura Stead, Fostering Services Manager at Foster Care Associates, operates out of the centre with a team of social workers, an education officer and a therapist covering East Yorkshire and Northern Lincolnshire. She was joined at the event by some of the foster carers.

Laura said:

We’ve been here since January and we’ve found these events great for networking with other businesses. There are a couple of others in here who we benefit from connecting with.

Ashley Waters of nagels, the international manufacturer and supplier of machine issue parking and transport tickets, added: “We only moved in at the beginning of September. We like it for the location, close to the city centre, and we like the way that they organise events like this to bring people together into a community.”

Leah-Anne Shillito, a receptionist at the centre, added: “This is the fourth year that we have supported the Macmillan event and we normally raise about £400 from each one. Some people baked cakes, some bought cakes and we had a raffle for various prizes which were donated. We also raised more than £100 from an email auction of two tickets for the Super League Grand Final.

We do similar events for Children in Need and we encourage businesses to get together whenever they can in the communal lounge and dining areas. There are many examples of businesses here working on joint projects after getting to know each other from these events.
