2022 BOSS Charity Day helping with rising living costs

Taking place on 15th June at Belton Woods Hotel, Grantham, this year’s annual BOSS Business Supplies Charity Day saw over 80 golfers participating (mainly) in the heat of a bright Lincolnshire summer day, while 17 others chose to get warmer still indoors in the spa.

The day was rounded off by the event’s traditional buffet dinner, raffle, and auction, as well as the prize-giving to the following industry golf champions:

Team competition: Winners: Exaclair, Runners up BIC UK

Individual competition: Winner: Nico Jean-Jean, Avery UK, Runner up Rob Moore, Victor Stationery

Nearest Pin: Scott Overend, Premier Vanguard

Longest Drive: Nico Jean-Jean, Avery UK

Putting: Scott Ledbury, Banner

The BOSS Business Supplies Charity is a registered charity, established to provide for those needing financial assistance who have worked, or currently work, for at least two years in the stationery or office supplies and services industry. In 2021 it helped over 30 colleagues in need by supplying one-off and quarterly support payments of over £74,000, as well as COVID support payments and BOSS Future Fund Grants for those needing financial help to progress their careers. Around 40 per cent of the money that the Charity gives away each year comes directly from fundraising activities, such as the Charity Day.

With some costs still to be accounted for, Charity Chair Martin Wilde announced that over £16,000 had been raised on the day. He said, “thanks to the amazing generosity of our sponsors – including our main event sponsor, EVO Group – our raffle and auction prize donors, and our c110 attendees, we are very confident that this year’s event has raised substantially more than even last year’s Charity Day.

“With inflation at a record high, the cost of living is rising very significantly for the least well off in our society - exactly the people that the BOSS Business Supplies Charity is here to help. I've already had several of our beneficiaries writing to us explaining that their energy bills have substantially increased from those of previous years and asking if we can assist them. Thanks in part to the 2022 Charity Day, we can.”

Next year’s BBSC Charity Day has already been booked for 14th June 2023 at the same venue.
