The St Helens based Horizon Business Network Group have been involved with the Foundation since the beginning. Our Chairman Mike Denning and Web Developer Gerry Payne are both active members of the group.
The Horizon Group have always submitted teams and runners to our events such as Taylor Park, Its a Knock Out, St Helens 10k and most recently the Yorkshire 3 Peaks and St Helens Tri which its self is sponsored by Horizon members Taberns.
Horizon was formed in 2006 by a group of businesses. One of Horizon’s founding members, Mike Ashall of Quadrant Mortgage Services says “Our meetings are always informal, getting together for breakfast at 7am every Thursday morning at Thatto Heath Crusaders ARLFC. We work closely with St Helens Chamber who has been really helpful to our group.
“We all have successful businesses, and while success in business is what it’s all about, we also wanted to give something back to our community. We’re not looking for global domination with Horizon. We’re established as a not-for-profit organisation so any excess profits we make will be pledged back into the community through sponsorship of local charities.”
“We’re currently supporting the work of The Steve Prescott Foundation and also Willowbrook Hospice, a charity providing specialist palliative care to people suffering life-threatening illnesses.”
Horizon has been running now for about 8 years and presently has 29 members. Always on th elook out for new members feel free to take a look at the horizon website to see if your category is available.
