Event description


Northallerton Business Network are delighted to be back at the wonderful Allerton Court Hotel in Northallerton for our first event in 2020. Free parking, Free WiFi and complimentary refreshments.

This event is free for registered members or those attending for the first time, who have pre-registered via eventbrite before 12 noon on Friday 3rd January or before the complimentary tickets are all taken. Alternatively you may pay £5 cash on entry.

Regular members and those attending for the first time - all are welcome.

Bring plenty of business cards, a smile and enjoy meeting like-minded businesses.

The January meeting is supported by funding from North Yorkshire Stronger Communities Project and is part of a series of events based around Self-Care for the Self Employed & Wellbeing in the Workplace. Based on the 5 Ways to Well-being:

  • Connect

  • Be active

  • Take Notice

  • Keep Learning

  • Give

This month we will be focusing on 'Giving' and how the smallest act can count, whether it's a smile, a thank you or a kind word. Larger acts such as volunteering can improve your wellbeing and help you build new social networks.

Volunteering presents you with the opportunity to meet new people, from all walks of life, utilise existing skills and gain new worthwhile skills which results in a real sense of achievement.

We welcome representatives from organisations who will highlight some of the opportunities to volunteer in our local area including:

Hambleton Community Action

HealthWatch North Yorkshire

Hambleton Strollers

Friends of Chernobyl's Children Charity (Northallerton - Alison Shepherd)

Herriot Hospice Homecare

Wensleydale Railway

North Yorkshire Moors Park

Each have been invited to exhibit provide an insight into the services they offer.

Four selected charities will be taking part in the Ten Minute Takeover. Which gives each a 10 minute opportunity to present to the group, explain some of the many benefits of volunteering, and outline the current volunteering roles they have available.

Plus lots of time for networking, talking and sharing ideas with other local business people.
