“The Charity of the Year initiative has been a fundamental part of our efforts to actively support the local communities where we are based for many years and we are proud to have helped a number of incredible causes along the way.
“The NAWT centre in Berkshire does fantastic work to support animals and their owners even after adoption and we are already hard at work planning out the range of events which will be held across the year to raise funds to support the incredible work it does.”
“These findings are a huge boost for Cambridge and highlight how the city is benefitting from industrial parks which are leading the way in fields such as wireless technology, display technology, and mobile telecommunications.
“The city is also of course close to London which is hugely beneficial with the capital remaining a key economic hub.”
“The Cambridge-Milton Keynes-Oxford Arc is seen to have the potential to be the UK’s Silicon Valley and this latest report highlights its economic strength. There is of course action that needs to be taken to ensure this location maximises its potential, but we shouldn’t lose sight of the need to generate growth in other areas.
“Cambridge, Oxford and Milton Keynes are expected to grow almost twice as fast in 2018 than cities such as Manchester, Leeds and Birmingham. Although the government acknowledges this is a problem, we need to see real action and investment in these areas.”
“Although many business groups have welcomed this white paper, there will be many organisations that’ll think that the announcements aren’t radical enough. Many businesses have been holding back on investment for a number of years and it will be interesting to see whether the government’s proposals will be sufficient to encourage this to change in the short and medium-term.
“The government has rightly identified a number of challenges and opportunities for the future, but clearly there is a great deal that much needs to be achieved if we are all going to deliver on the ambition of making the UK the most innovative nation by 2030. The prize though is considerable. If we get it right, we will tackle the UK’s long-standing productivity puzzle and ensure that we have the right economic foundations for many years to come.”
