The Business Exchange 12 Days of Christmas – Day 2

By Anita Jaynes on 13 December, 2022

On the run up to Christmas this year, each day from 12th-24th December, The Business Exchange Swindon and Wiltshire is putting the spotlight on a local charity and its work.

Anita Jaynes, Founder of The Business Exchange, said, “It’s the season of giving and perpetual hope and it makes sense to use our reach to help raise awareness of some amazing causes in our community and their work. 

“The Business Exchange is all about connecting people and organisations for good and corporate social responsibility is important to me personally. The not-for-profit space is particularly tough at the moment and needs all the help it can get.”

Today, we put the spotlight on Business against Poverty.

Business against Poverty is a community of business leaders committed to ethical and sustainable standards, all looking to use their companies to address issues of poverty and take action.

Since 2009, Business against Poverty has been encouraging a culture of caring for our planet and compassion for its people. Like-minded business leaders come together to support the work of People against Poverty, the Devizes-based humanitarian charity that provides new hope and a more sustainable future to people in need globally. The charity’s motto is ‘a handshake, not a hand out.’

Working together towards a brighter future, Business against Poverty’s members all have purpose at heart as part of a movement for change.
