Jo Boddington of Bodster CIC this year is a student of “The Lloyds Bank Social Entrepreneurs Trade Up Programme, in partnership with the School for Social Entrepreneurs, and jointly funded by The National Lottery Community Fund.” As a student on this programme Jo is receiving support and training to help to increase Bodster CIC’s income. The Trade Up Programme includes Match Trading® which is grant-funding that pound-for-pound matches an increase in income from trading. By rewarding sales growth, Match Trading grants incentivise social organisations to develop their trading base, so they can build stronger futures. Jo is proud to be an SSE student and hopes through this programme this year she will be able to introduce some new courses and ideas to increase Bodster CIC’s income.
