|Its often said that charity starts at home and with the nation looking at
uncertain times there could be a reluctance for business owners and
finance directors to part with their hard-earned cash and pull back on
CSR programs or charitable donations.
You may already be aware that BBX is an ORB member and operates a
global business exchange where businesses use BBX Money as a financial mechanism to use each other’s spare capacity in an efficient marketplace. This process has been refined over the last 26 years.
I am now pleased to announce our next development: the launch of our

Having been BBX members since 2014, we, as a charity, have seen huge benefits of being part of this service; from support with our fundraising,

Be part of our ‘SPARETEMBER’ event……
BBX has launched ‘SPARETEMBER’ which is a month long giving campaign where businesses can donate their spare capacity (stock / services / vouchers etc…) and BBX will convert it to a BBX donation to the basket of charities free of charge.
Who is this relevant to?
- Any business who has the desire to help good causes and has some spare capacity (see our calculators here)
- Any Charity who would like to be one of our designated charities to receive donations.
- Any person who thinks this is a great idea and wants to help in any way: contact me direct and/or share this, please.
