Bolton-based business network invites community to celebrate Social Enterprise Day

A network of entrepreneurs who are committed to making sure business benefits everyone in Bolton is raising awareness of social enterprise and the difference it makes at a free-to-attend celebration event on Thursday 17 November. 

The celebration, taking place at Bolton Central Library, will mark Social Enterprise Day: a global event recognising the contribution that social enterprises make to communities and the environment across the world.  

Attendees will hear from local social enterprises, including The Van: a coffee barista van that raises money to fund homelessness projects delivered by Backup Charity North West, while providing young people at risk of homelessness with work experience and career skills. 

Proper Good Bolton, a free business support programme for people looking to start or grow social enterprises, will be hosting the event.  

Commenting on what the day means to them, Karen Smith, Proper Good Bolton programme lead, said:  

“Social enterprises across the UK are changing lives and communities which is why we are proud to celebrate and be part of Social Enterprise Day – and encourage everyone to find out more about how this unique way of doing business is changing lives for the better in Bolton.” 

Peter Holbrook, Chief Executive of Social Enterprise UK, who run an annual campaign on Social Enterprise Day said:  

“Social Enterprise Day is a celebration of the great work social enterprises up and down the country are doing for the environment and communities.   

“Where we spend our money can make change happen, and with social enterprises, you can be sure that your purchase will make a real difference.”  

There are more than 100,000 social enterprises in the UK contributing an estimated £60bn annually to the economy and employing around two million people.
