Business in the Community: A massive thanks to Business in the Community who have made a very generous £100 donation from their Dress-Down Fund as part of our 25th anniversary fundraising drive.  This is so much appreciated by the staff and Board of Employers for Disability NI.  Every penny will be put to good use in supporting our members and employees in helping disabled people get and keep employment.
BT: First out of the blocks is…one of our Lead Partners, BT!!!! A huge thanks and appreciation to BT for kick starting our member fundraising drive with a generous donation from their employee charity fund.  The campaign celebrates 25 years of the work of Employers for Disability NI and this will help us continue our work.  This is a wonderful start for us and we are very grateful.
