The BOSS Business Supplies Charity – the charity first established in 1925 by what later became the BOSS Federation – has announced the launch of an individual and corporate Patronage Scheme. All those who have a connection with the business supplies industry are being invited to become an Individual Patron to partner with the charity on a regular basis for only £50 per month. In addition, 12 businesses who are amongst the charity’s strongest supporters are being recruited as Corporate Patrons. All Patrons will receive acknowledgement on the new BOSS Charity website, a quarterly newsletter, and the opportunity to attend the first annual BOSS Charity Patrons’ Dinner – being held at Stationers’ Hall on 16th February 2023, where the guest speaker is Eddie “the Eagle” Edwards. Chair of the charity, Martin Wilde, commented: “The role of the BOSS Charity is to give financial support to those who have worked in the UK business supplies industry who are in need – until they no longer need our help. We have launched the Patronage Scheme in response to the extraordinarily steep cost of living increases, which are now causing real distress. Our discussions with businesses and individuals over recent weeks have shown that there is a real desire to support the charity’s work – and becoming a Patron is a great way of doing just that. We are particularly pleased to welcome Eddie the Eagle – the epitome of the grit and perseverance needed by those who must pick themselves up after a “fall” – as the guest speaker at our inaugural Patron’s Dinner.” The charity has also already announced the date of its next annual Charity Golf and Spa Day as 14th June 2023.
