We joined the Bondholder Scheme in 2013 because we wanted to be part of this ever growing business network with the emphasis being on Hull and the Humber. As a charity we have been supported in many ways, met some great new contacts and built some really great relationships on the back of it. There is no restriction to size, large or small; showing we can all play our part in shaping the future of the region.
The Humber has powered the UK economy for decades, bringing everything from food to freight, coal to cars, passengers to petroleum and is home to the UK’s busiest port complex. Not only does it face Northern Europe, but its strategic position at the centre of the UK - 200 miles from London, Edinburgh and Rotterdam, also makes it an important hub for trade and industry.
Today, the Humber’s location and ports connectivity continues to drive some serious investments and innovation. Coined as ‘The Energy Estuary’, it now boasts a wide range of knowledge economy sectors from renewables and bio-mass energy to engineering, chemicals, food processing and digital industries - taking raw materials and inventing products and services used around the world 24-7.
