Gloucestershire Forwards

Gloucestershire Forwards is a joint venture between Gloucester Rugby, The Association of Gloucestershire Business Groups (AGBG) and Gloucestershire County Cricket Club.

This collaborative business networking group aims to use the power of sport to bring businesses and the community together. The core objective is to develop a business network that provides opportunities for businesses and community initiatives across Gloucestershire to connect and work with each other.

Gloucestershire Forwards has been founded to help support businesses of all sizes across Gloucestershire. Through offering business networking with a twist, and holding exciting events across the calendar at various locations across the county.

One of the goals of Gloucestershire Forwards is to create an inclusive forum for all Gloucestershire businesses to work together, finding solutions for present day issues experienced, whilst supporting community and charitable work across the county.

This will be recognised through direct fundraising for charities. Each event will give a charitable or community representative the opportunity to promote their work and projects. A charitable donation will be made from the proceeds of ticket sales. This will go to different charities and projects across Gloucestershire.

The next event will be held at Gloucestershire County Cricket Club on Tuesday 10th April.

"We are delighted to be one of the founding partners of Gloucestershire Forwards and the intention of this new organisation is to develop an inclusive forum to connect businesses across Gloucestershire alongside community projects and charitable partners.

Claire Thayer from the Association of Gloucestershire Business Groups (AGBG) stated that:

"The association is passionate about our towns and our micro businesses right across the county, this partnership will enable us to promote the benefits of collaboration - together we are stronger. "
