‘Blues in Business’ enjoyed a VIP day out at the City of Manchester Stadium on Sunday courtesy of Ferrostaal.
Eight of the newly formed organisation met legends Mike Summerbee and Paul Lake (pictured with them) and had a look behind the scenes ahead of the win over Birmingham City.
Ferrostaal, one of City’s official global partners, provided the hospitality for what was the official launch of the charity organisation which plans to concentrate on specific activities in the Manchester area.
The BIB members are like minded City fans and have started several activities already. So far they have raised money for Challenge4Change, a charity in Trafford which provides a fantastic facility for children and young adults with varying degrees of ability and disability in order to get them exercising together and to enjoying activities.
BIB has also raised money for Jump Space, a charity in Stockport that caters for children with Autism and Learning Difficulties and they are hoping to help provide a mini-bus for Sierra Leone.
Co-founder Graham Davies was thrilled with Ferrostaal’s gesture.
“This is a fantastic opportunity for like minded Blue businessmen to get together and make a real difference in the community,” he said.
“We all appreciate the great initiative that Ferrostaal have instigated.”
It was a view endorsed by fellow founder Dave Djodjevic.
“This is a way of networking whilst working to raise money for charity,” he said. “The opportunity Ferrostaal have given us is fantastic. We know people will get a great opportunity out of the initiative.”
