Beneficiaries

The BOSS Business Supplies Charity helps over 100 families each year, either by regular quarterly grants, or one-off grants.

To help these and other equally deserving people, we depend on BenGolf, on donations from the Trade and the Grand Raffle we have at awards evenings like the BOSS Awards.

Below are some examples of the people we have helped...

Claire

31 October 2017

Citizen's Advice put Claire in touch with BOSS Business Supplies Charity after hearing she had worked for an office products supplier before being made redundant. Life isn't easy for Claire who is a single parent and has mental health difficulties. With two teenage sons, one of whom has ASD, she is doing her very best to support them whilst preparing for their GCSEs. She had exhausted all avenues to find the money she needed to buy them new school shoes and uniforms and, most importantly for her football-mad boys, new PE kit.
