Money raised at charity golf day and anniversary dinner as TVD Group celebrates 20th anniversary
Bolton Wanderers Community Trust recently received almost £8,000 as well-known Bolton company TVD Group celebrated its 20th Anniversary.
The TVD group, which started life as TV and Video Direct by founder Jim Brown, raised the money at a charity golf day and anniversary dinner at the Worsley Marriott Hotel.
Phil Mason Head of Community said: “We are overwhelmed by the great support we get from TVD Group for the work of the Trust.
“Mat Brown has become a Trustee of the Charity and his wife is one of our volunteers who supports our looked after children programme Positive Chances”.
Mat has committed to help the Community Trust identify businesses to support the work of the charity by becoming Community Partner.
Businesses can help in three ways; by making an annual donation, providing a free service to support the Trust or by supporting one of the programmes with financial or volunteering help.
Phil Mason added: “The TVD Group have not only committed to help find partners but have become a partner themselves in all the support that they are offering the Trust.”
Over its 20 years the TVD Group has developed several arms including a commercial side, where it works with betting shops, pubs, the holiday and leisure businesses providing TVs, digital screens, audio, and lighting. It also has a home cinema business.
As part of its anniversary year it has also launched its own TV brand — Mitchell and Brown.
Marketing manager Mike Oliver explained that the name comes from Mr Brown and also his mother’s maiden name of Mitchell. After the death of Mr Brown, the business is now run by his sons Matthew and Daniel and the new brand is close to their hearts and the range is a tribute to him.
