The ONE Haverhill Partnership has launched a new drive to encourage more businesses to get involved in supporting its projects and priorities for the town.

ONE Haverhill Business Angels was launched during an event at Baythorne Hall, at which representatives from some of the town’s biggest employers heard about the partnership’s aims in areas including education, employment, crime, health, culture and the Town Centre Masterplan.

John Mayhew, chairman of ONE Haverhill Partnership, said: “Our whole premise centres around organisations working together to try to make Haverhill a better place for those who work, live and visit the town.

“We want to bring the business community together to help us achieve some of our priorities for Haverhill and it was great to formally launch the Business Angels.

“I would like to thank everyone who attended the launch and would also appeal to any local businesses who would like to find out more to get in touch.”

Mr Mayhew said that many projects driven by ONE Haverhill Partnership which could be supported by businesses in a variety of ways, whether financially, through voluntary support or through resources.

He cited pharmaceutical company Sanofi’s sponsorship the ONE Haverhill Apprenticeship Awards in January this year as a perfect example of local support from the business community.
