BOM IT Solutions have the pleasure to be involved with the Community of Purpose Bristol Young Heroes 2020 awards.
About Community of Purpose
Community of Purpose work to transform the lives and futures of young people across Bristol and beyond. Community of Purpose believe that everyone can contribute meaningfully to economic and social development if they are given the right support and opportunities.
Community of Purpose work with individuals, families and communities, empowering them to identify what is needed to transform their lives and then supporting them to take action. Often acting as a link between communities and the local authorities and voluntary sector providers such as the police, social workers and teachers, Community of Purpose develop activities and services to build aspirations and confidence and tackle inequality. Many of their projects use sport and physical activities to bring about social change.
Community of Purpose work closely with businesses like BOM IT Solutions, supporting them to understand the valuable role they can play in the community.
Projects are focused on supporting communities that are seen as culturally, economically and geographically disadvantaged.

- Be generous – We help each other out, take time to say thank you, and donate our time, resources and money where we can to help those who need it more.
The Rugby March
We were thrilled to be joined by 488 participants of all ages from 10 to 80, almost selling out in the event’s first year! The route took them through the most scenic parts of the city, passing through Leigh Woods, over the iconic suspension bridge and through the grounds of Ashton Court to reach the stadium in a mixture of sunshine and sudden downpours. At the finish line, we were rewarded with a thrilling game of rugby and even a big win for the Bears!
