No doubt most local businesses will look to support one another and the community around them. Of course, it’s always an important step for business owners to strengthen ties with people in the surrounding areas. If you’ve been running your company for some time, you’ll eventually look for ways to expand and it will be important to take into consideration storage space. Shrewsbury is one place where a business owner is giving back to the community.
The Shropshire Live reports that a businessman is preparing for a charity cycle ride. Robin Morris, the chairman of Morris & Company, has teamed up with 15 business owners and friends for a 100-mile ride to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the end of the First World War. Those who will take part in the event include Mr Morris’ brother Chris, the chief executive officer and managing director of Morris Site Machinery.
The brothers, who will be raising money for the Royal British Legion, have said that there have been personal reasons behind their decision to support the cause, with the company losing employees during World War I and their grandfather awarded the Legion of Honour for his services. The event is set to take place on September 8th.
Jenny Robey, the community fundraiser for Shropshire at the Royal British Legion, commented: “We all have a connection to the First World War and we all have a reason to say thank you to this special generation. We are making a plea to every single person across the UK to get involved and take a moment in this very significant year to say thank you.”
Now might be the perfect time for other businesses in local communities to consider different events that can mark such a monumental milestone and raise funds for a brilliant cause.
