We’re excited to share that once again, Virgin Unite is partnering with the Virgin Media Business Voom Pitch competition to celebrate businesses whose product or business plan is focused on achieving positive impact.
The Virgin Unite Impact Award is offering £20,000 for a charity, business or social enterprise that’s making a difference to people in need.
To be in with a chance of securing the grant, your charity, business or social enterprise will need to show a clear plan on how you will achieve impact and will need to showcase either a pilot or a programme with significant scale potential. You don’t have to be running a registered charity but the objective of your organisation must satisfy the Charity Commission’s definition of ‘charitable purpose’.
In 2016, Lee Cole, founder of Paint360 was announced winner of the Voom Impact Award.
Speaking days after winning, Lee said: “The publicity has already kicked in with suppliers and customers alike. Receiving professional tutoring will be extremely beneficial on a business front and for me, personally. To be further associated with Virgin will hopefully make the public follow the trade and recognise that recycled products can be equal on quality and price with no stigma attached to them.”
