Property developer and entrepreneur Howard Rose, Director of Funding and Publicity at Balsall Common Primary School said:
“I have been able to successfully link business and education both from a school perspective and also away from school in my own business.
I have now come up with a novel idea to directly link the two where I can actively support three local charities and give back.
“I have lots of ideas for the future of how I can give people a chance to win things they want but perhaps could never afford while still helping out local charities. I will be inviting people to vote/suggest new charities for each competition.”
