Being part of an organisation which supports charities to help people in need.
What is your business’s USP?
Reliability – we have funded lots of our beneficiary charities for many years.
Where do you get most of your new work from?
Charities hear about us through funding websites and infrastructure organisations.
How has working with Worcester Web Studio helped you?
We really needed a new website and Worcester Web Studio created a modern and easy to use website. We’ve had lots of comments about how easy it is to use. They’ve also just set up a new web to lead form for our database.
Where do you see your business in five years’ time?
Still based in Worcester helping local charities and proud to do so.
What advice would you give to someone starting their first business?
Honour your agreements and have fun – the hours fly by if you enjoy what you do.
