Individual Patrons

Why become a BBSC Individual Patron?

It’s simple: you may well be helping your own industry colleagues and friends! Our near 100 year history shows that today’s colleague may be tomorrow’s BBSC beneficiary, so you will be actively helping care for our industry’s most precious resource – its people.

For only £600 per year, you will be helping those in our industry who need it most, as well as having:

  • The opportunity to purchase up to two discounted tickets for our annual Charity Dinner.
  • Your name featured as a BBSC Individual Patron on the BBSC web site, Facebook page, as well as in all BBSC Press Releases.
  • A quarterly newsletter from the BBSC, keeping you up to date on all that is happening and what we are doing with the money that you donate.

“We have a unique industry, and it is made up of all of the contributions of talented people within it. I would like to think I have been fortunate and successful in my career and in my experience of working in our industry over many years. I think it is important to ‘give back’ and support those colleagues who need help, especially in times of volatility, financial challenge and ill health… it was an easy decision to become an Individual Patron and support the BOSS Business Supplies Charity in all its endeavours to support those in our industry that need a little help along the way.”

Steve Haworth

“I was continuously humbled by the effort and commitment of the least privileged in our industry during the COVID pandemic.  Simply put, they ensured the Industry’s survival.  It is, therefore, an easy decision for me to support the BOSS Business Supplies Charity as an Individual Patron. Recognising the contribution made by everybody in the industry and my privileged position as a result, means that supporting those in real need is just the right thing to do.”

Steve Hilleard

“Having closely witnessed the dedicated efforts of the volunteer officials and Trustees of the BOSS Business Supplies Charity (BBSC), I felt compelled to offer my personal support. The recent collapse of Nectere and its profound effect on the livelihoods of numerous industry colleagues underscores the vital lifeline that charitable support can provide. As a leader in a business committed to giving back to our community, endorsing the BBSC is an obvious choice.”

Phil Jones MBE

“I’ve been fortunate enough to do well in my career and I’m a great believer in giving back.  Becoming an Individual Patron of the BOSS Charity seemed an obvious thing to do, as they are able to directly impact outcomes for current and former members of the industry who may need a helping hand.”
