Attendees at Swindon Business Village, which meets on Thursdays for breakfast, took along donations for the foodbank and heard a presentation about its work by manager Cher Smith.

Christmas party clothes were worn and cracker jokes shared, as the Business Villagers brought a bit of festive fun to the occasion.

Coach Shirley Hensher, who runs The Change Agent and chaired the meeting, said: “The Business Village is a really supportive group of local business people who care about the local community.  We were all impressed by the commitment of Cher and her team to helping people who find themselves in crisis, and very glad to be able to contribute to their vital work ”

Swindon Business Village meets each Thursday for breakfast and networking at The Campanile Hotel, on the Delta Business Park, from 7.30-9am. All the events are listed here.

The events are a mix of presentations, referrals and business problem-solving. There is no membership fee, and each meeting costs £9 or £10 when booked in advance, or £12 on the day.
