I joined BNI and now I’m swimming in Lake Windermere!
In ten days time, eight members of BNI Enterprize are taking on the challenge of a charity fundraising, open water swim in Lake Windermere. For six of the group it will be their first experience of open water swimming!
We are raising money for charities that are close to our hearts: Sheffield Children’s Hospital cared for my daughter before, during and after a very serious operation and Fairplay, a wonderful charity that supports children and young people with disabilities across North Derbyshire.
Three years ago, I helped establish a BNI business networking group in Chesterfield. The group is thriving. It has thirty members with more in the pipeline. It has made a significant contribution to the growth of my business, Paperclip.
However, BNI has given me much more than I ever thought it could: a sense of belonging, collective endeavour, team spirit…and a fiancé! As part of BNI, members regularly take part in charity fundraising events like the one I mentioned above.
Your donations can make a real difference to the happiness of so many children.

Outstanding. We used Paperclip Admin to cover maternity leave in our company, they were friendly, professional and efficient. We found their phone answering service very helpful when we were unable to take calls ourselves.
