Amro supports Croydon Black History 365
Amro Partners has partnered with Croydon BME Forum to sponsor their Black History 365 programme, comprising creative, cultural and health & wellbeing events spanning 2023 and 2024.
The events are a combination of partnerships, commissions and CBME Forum led projects encouraging members of the community to participate, view, learn and share. The programme is linked to Croydon’s status as London Borough of Culture for 2023.
Croydon BME Forum, the umbrella organisation for Croydon’s Black and Minority Ethnic voluntary and community sector, is a registered charity engaging BME communities in the Borough, promoting equality and cohesion.
Amro’s sponsorship package will assist with the running and promotion of the BH365 programme, which launched on 3rd October 2023. Amro is also exploring opportunities to promote local employment opportunities through its Botanical House development on the site of the former Croydon Park Hotel.
Tom Donnachie, MD, UK investment at Amro Partners, said: “Croydon Black History 365 will shine a light on the incredible contribution Black and Minority Ethnic communities have made to life in Croydon and the wider UK. We look forward to working with the Forum to help ensure the programme reaches as many people as possible within the community.”
Andrew Brown, Chief Executive of Croydon BME Forum, said: “We are happy to be partnering with Amro Partners to continue to deliver Black History with the London Borough of Croydon for the next 3 years. This valuable funding will enable the Forum to further expand its programme to new people who have not previously been engaged with us.”
