Hayley Conference Centres launches new community project

Hayley Conference Centres is calling for nominations for a new community support project that provides local support to "worthy causes" across eight UK regions. The group is offering practical help to local groups in a range of forms that include PR, marketing, business administration, catering and accounting. The scheme ties in with the group’s 15th anniversary and will be offered across several regions including Milton Keynes, Northampton, Stratford-upon-Avon, South Manchester, Eastwood, Old Windsor, Berkshire and Swindon. To qualify organisations or individuals must outline their case as a "worthy cause" to be assessed by a panel that include the conference centre’s clients. Hayley Conference Centre sales and operations director Jane Littlewood said: "We are keen to give something back to the community and under this new scheme our clients are able to help us identify worthy causes. "We are lucky to have a workforce with high levels of expertise and energy and are setting ourselves the challenge of helping as many people as possible." Nomination details should be sent to Hayley Helping Hands, Freepost ANG 5206, Hayley Conference Centres, Little Horwood, Milton Keynes, Buckinghamshire, MK17 0PQ or by email to helpinghands@hayleycc.co.uk
