Business for Good
B1G1 (Buy1Give1) is a global business-giving initiative that makes it easy for enterprises – particularly small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) – to support charitable causes around the world. Founded in Australia in 2007 and now headquartered in Singapore, B1G1 provides an online platform that enables SMEs to leverage their everyday business activities to support over 500 giving projects from 30+ countries.
I am committed to recognising success within NDC by making a difference and donating to multiple projects all over the world. From planting trees in Kenya to providing shelter for homeless children in India, making access to life-saving water possible to families in Ethiopia and giving vaccines to stray dogs in Nepal. These are just some of the examples that I have invested in with an aim to achieve more than 5,000 impacts every year.

Where we've helped around the world
Not a lot of people know that I was actually a twin, only for my twin to unfortunately pass away before full term. After a long period of time, I had gradually wondered what it would’ve been like to have had a twin and it led me to become involved with a charity called Sands.
Sands is the leading stillbirth and neonatal death charity in the UK. Sands exists to reduce the number of babies dying and to ensure that anyone affected by the death of a baby receives the best possible care and support for as long as they need it.
Sands also provides bereavement support services both nationally through its Freephone helpline, mobile app, online community and resources, and locally through a UK-wide network of around 100 regional support groups.
The charity has a small network of football teams around the country and I have been asked to come along and play for the Bristol outfit! I have also dug into my pocket to help support the team as they embark on their first competitive season (2021/22). I am hugely proud and privileged to not only sponsor Sands United Bristol FC, but also to play for the team amongst a group of strong, inspirational men.
