A win for Bristol business

26 August 2016

  • Bristol Energy ran a champagne and charity donation competition at this year’s balloon fiesta, at the early morning Business Breakfast.

competition winner James Piper form Ecosurety receiving champagneThe theme of this year’s event was “profit with a purpose”, and our Managing Director Peter Haigh spoke about the benefits of running a business “with heart”, and then told invited guests how we support the local community.

To mark the fact that we’re now offering gas and electricity to business customers, we entered all attendees into the prize draw – to win a bottle of champagne and a £50 charity donation in their name.

The winner was James Piper – Managing Director at Ecosurety, the UK’s leading compliance scheme and resource efficiency specialist, based in Almondsbury near Bristol.

James was recently named South West Young Director of the Year by the Institute of Directors and is now in the running for the IoD National Young Director of the year Award. Perhaps he will keep the champagne on ice until the results are announced! 

James is also heavily involved with charities caring for special needs children.

“As a resource efficiency specialist we are passionate about protecting the environment and encouraging sustainability. An energy company that reinvests profits back into the local community of Bristol is definitely a good action we support.” James Piper, managing director of Ecosurety

The £50 donation has been made to local homelessness charity, Caring in Bristol, one of our charity partners.
