Local businesses are beginning to embrace the ethos of giving back and share the social responsibility of the group. Carren Bell from Lagans Foundation, a local charity supporting children under 5 with congenital heart disease says this about the group, “Lagan's foundation is a brand new charity local to Bolton. Through our links with Gary Sheader and the Bolton Manufacturing Group he has allowed the charity to reach many more companies and individuals than any advertising alone could have done. The group allowed us to get close to operations and we were privileged to deliver pitches to the group. In addition to all of this the group helped to raise almost £1000 for the charity. We cannot thank them enough for their help.”
Bolton Manufacturers Group provides vital information for the manufacturing community of Bolton and the surrounding towns. They have seen over 50 local manufacturing businesses attend their monthly meetings and have just celebrated their one year anniversary. Members receive a constant stream of information to assist business growth, such as funding opportunities, advice on the latest technology and ideas on good business practice.
“Our government believes that it is manufacturing that will lead the way out of recession and, by having networks like this where knowledge can be shared, and contacts made, in an informal, relaxed, atmosphere (and with good pie & peas) can only help. It was Gary's foresight and perseverance that made it happen and long may it continue to thrive.” Val Pilkington, Managing Director, PMT Industries.
