Powerday Foundation appoints first ambassador volunteer
We are delighted to announce that the Powerday Foundation has appointed its first voluntary ambassador, Paul Whitnell, president of the British and Irish Trading Alliance (BITA).
Powerday launched the Powerday Foundation in 2017 having long worked to improve the health and wellbeing of young Londoners through sport. The Foundation brings together all our charitable activities, expands our work with local partners, schools and communities, and builds on the success of our partnership with London Boxing. By improving sports facilities and equipment in the community and giving disadvantaged children and young people skills, knowledge and confidence to support their health and wellbeing, we aim to enable them to get the most out of their lives.
Founded by Paul Whitnell in 2012, BITA facilitates and encourages networking to provide advice, support and business between its members. Community driven, BITA has a strong CSR commitment and supports a number of charities. Having been a member of BITA for over ten years, Powerday has benefitted from the not-for-profit organisation’s community of businesses and strong links between the UK and Ireland.
Edward Crossan, CEO, Powerday says: “We share common values with BITA and have built up a strong relationship with Paul over the last decade so are very pleased to welcome him on board. We look forward to working with Paul to raise awareness of the work of the Powerday Foundation and encourage others to get involved.”
Paul Whitnell says: “We have been involved with Powerday over the last ten years and I’m delighted to join the Powerday Foundation as an ambassador going forward. We will be working with Powerday to drive social value, a priority that is at the core of our values at BITA. To be involved in this fantastic initiative is bringing this to another level, and we look forward to participating and playing our part in the Powerday Foundation going forward.”
