March 30th 2020
March 2020: Former Cabinet Minister, Rt Hon Justine Greening, who launched the C-19 Business Pledge with entrepreneur David Harrison, welcomed Sir Roger Gale’s backing for the national scheme encouraging businesses to join the coronavirus national effort by pledging to go the extra mile helping their employees, customers and communities get through the crisis.
Sir Roger has said:
“We owe a huge debt of gratitude to all of those who, while facing huge difficulties themselves, are nevertheless making their resources available to the national effort to support not only their own employees but smaller businesses and whole communities as well”
Justine Greening adds: “With the future of many employers hanging in the balance and incredibly tough times unfolding in sectors across the UK, businesses face many incredibly difficult decisions.
“But those companies who are able, can have a huge role in battling the impact of coronavirus and make a real difference in these uniquely challenging times.
“In spite of everything, lots of businesses have already shown amazing initiative and commitment to helping people affected by a coronavirus. The C-19 Business Pledge is all about encouraging as many businesses as possible to get involved and then helping them do that faster and better by sharing all the great work that’s already been done on our website, www.c19businesspledge.org. The early response has been incredible and I’ll do everything I can to help to connect up British business to play its role. It’s great to have MPs like Sir Roger involved.”
