Be a community minded business in Lewisham
Join us for talks and networking with local business owners on the subject of ‘giving back’ locally.
Tuesday 28th November is Giving Tuesday, when we turn our attention towards what we can do to ‘give back’ locally. There are many different ways businesses can support vital community initiatives and it’s important to understand the benefits for your business as well as the local community.
As part of the ‘Theatre Trip For Every Child’ The Albany is inviting local business owners to a private event, in partnership with Business in the Community and Lewisham Local. Sir Steve Bullock, Mayor of Lewisham and Gavin Barlow, Chief Executive of The Albany will be hosting the event.
This is an opportunity to learn more about the benefits of being community minded, discover opportunities and ideas to give back in Lewisham and meet other like-minded businesses and organisations.
