The British Franchise Association (bfa) are gearing up for the return of the fab, fun and thrilling Chairman’s Charity Fun Day which is being held at Whilton Mill on Thursday 13th September!
The annual Chairman’s Charity Fun Day hosts a range of exciting activities such as Human Table Football, Go Karting, and Scramble Scramble – an inflatable obstacle course! To motivate all attendees to do their best, there will be an awards ceremony delivering prizes to the winners of the day. No need to worry about going hungry either after all the action, a packed lunch will be provided as well as an end-of-the-day BBQ!
Trevor Brocklebank, Chairman of the bfa says, ‘Last year was a massive success, and not just because we raised £6,100 for The Franchise Trust, but also the amount of fun had by all that attended, and we hope you will join us this year for more foam, food and franchising!’
The aim of this event is to raise funds for The Franchise Trust – an organisation that hopes to provide opportunities to individuals in disadvantaged circumstances and who struggle to access the workplace. Training opportunities, coaching and network support are only a few of the terrific services designed to help create a more secure future within the franchise industry. The Franchise Trust was founded by the bfa in 2012 and is a registered charity in England and Wales. The Trustees are longstanding experts within franchising with considerable experience and knowledge within the industry.
Pip Wilkins, CEO of the bfa says, ‘There are over 900 franchise systems in the UK spanning the breadth of business sectors and contributing over 15bn to the UK economy, this presents an amazing opportunity for individuals wanting to secure careers for their future. The Franchise Trust sits at the heart of this industry and with the support of the bfa, the Trust will facilitate training opportunities to equip people disadvantaged by their backgrounds or personal circumstances to build confidence and life skills to secure workplace opportunities in franchising’
