A British entrepreneur, I am the Founder of alldayPA, the UK's largest 24-hour telephone answering services provider and the CEO of Isher Capital, a boutique private equity fund.
Charity is something that should generally be kept personal, but sometimes certain causes need to be promoted to generate more awareness of the charity and their core issues.
Working with my own companies and those within my network of 5,000 or so contacts, I'm always more than willing to get involved in helping to raise funds and awareness for charities, charitable events, and other causes.
As a proud British Sikh, I find that charities that are focussed on helping people in our British society are easier for me to relate to. They say charity begins at home, and home for me is our society here in Britain. With finite resources it's sometimes difficult to get involved in everything that is presented to me and therefore sometimes unfortunately one has to be selective. But, fortunately, with a large network of contacts there is always someone somewhere who will surely be willing and able to get involved in the cause if I can't.
I think entrepreneurs are an excellent community to help generate funding and, more importantly, generate greater awareness of charitable causes. Lending support of any sort is always well received by charities, and entrepreneurs have a larger network of contacts than most to spread the word for these causes.
Here's just a few causes and charities that have touched my heart, which I have tried to help raise funding and awareness of in a small way.
I am always looking to work with charities and charitable causes of all sizes.
