Charity, Firm Comments Off on News from Community Foundation for Merseyside

BWMacfarlane has just been announced as a sponsor of Merseyside’s largest community awards.

The Spirit of Merseyside Awards is an annual event hosted by the Community Foundation for Merseyside which aims to recognise and celebrate outstanding work in the community and voluntary sector and the local businesses and philanthropists that have supported them.

This year’s awards will be held on Thursday 14 June at St. George’s Hall.

A mixture of voluntary and community groups, local businesses, high profile individuals, local celebrities and representatives from the public sector will be attending the awards ceremony.

Peter Taaffe, Managing Partner said: “The Spirit of Merseyside Awards is an excellent opportunity to support the work of Community Foundation for Merseyside as they pay tribute to some of the region’s most inspirational individuals and community groups.

“We particularly appreciate the importance of being there on the night, giving us a chance to introduce colleagues and guests to the Community Foundation and the amazing groups they are involved in supporting.”

“As a business, we are committed to demonstrating corporate social responsibility across every area of our company – including by contributing to the local communities where we operate, and sponsoring the Awards provides a fantastic platform for us to do exactly that.”

Cathy Elliott, Chief Executive of the Community Foundation said: “We’re absolutely delighted that BWMacfarlane has agreed to partner with us as a sponsor for the Spirit of Merseyside Awards 2012, which is one of the real highlights of our calendar year.

“The Awards provide a unique opportunity to celebrate the contribution of many individuals and organisations across Merseyside who are helping to make a real difference to their local communities – and without the generous support of our local business sponsors it simply would not be possible to make this happen.”
