A CONFERENCE has been organised to help businesses support charities.

Kids, a charity which helps families with disabled children, has organised the half-day event at Wakefield Town Hall on December 7.

Guest speakers will include Express editor Mark Bradley, shadow chancellor and Morley and Outwood MP Ed Balls, and Sam Grundy, from Kids.

Kids said the event would help make charitable giving work for companies, after research showed customers reacted well to businesses which were active in the community.

Mrs Grundy said: “We are all too modest about talking about the good work we do in our local communities. But, if by talking about the good work we do, we help to increase profits, then we ultimately can do more good work.

“Charities need local businesses to recognise that working with them could aid the profitability of the business too.”

The conference will be held from 9.30am-1.30pm at the Kingswood Suite at Wakefield Town Hall on Friday, December 7.
