During February our teams are going head to head to raise money for our charity partner - Barnardo's. Three teams are competing in a Apprentice style challenge to raise as much money as they can for local projects by organising events, with the team raising the most money winning the challenge.
Consisting of three teams, the Apprentice Challenge will see employees organising events including a Golf Day, a Race Night, staff dressed in "Grease" style outfits out on the streets of Preston to collect money, raffles and a charity dance featuring live music from The Rockabelles; a band fronted by Marsden Rawsthorn Legal Executive Kim Seward.
Team Lovely Bubblies one of our three teams competing in our Apprentice style challenge to raise money for our charity partners Barnardo's, are holding a charity dance to raise money for our two local projects, Include Me 2 and Moving On for which provides support for homeless 16-25 year olds in the North West.
The event is to be held at Fives Penthouse, Guildhall Street, Preston. The night includes two music acts and DJs, and some lovely sweet treats!
After months of press coverage the government has now confirmed their proposals for their comprehensive review and shakeup up of Employment legislation.
The aims of the reforms, according to Vince Cable, is to "radically reform employment relations - but safeguard workers' rights, while deregulating to reduce the onerous and unnecessary demands on businesses". The latter may well come as a welcome message to small employers but what reforms are they proposing.
