Conor was invited to take part in a Grand National charity bet at Coral. Conor’s winnings were given to Crumbs, the local catering charity for people with learning difficulties and disabilities, of which he is patron.
Conor was asked to sponsor the People’s Postcode Lottery Parliamentary Reception, which brought together over thirty of the most diverse charities across the country including The Dame Kelly Holmes Trust, The Woodland Trust and Whizz Kids.
Following a meeting with Lord Bird, Founder of the Big Issue, Conor has been meeting with a number of homelessness stakeholders in Bournemouth. One of the first was Shelter, the national charity on bad housing and homelessness.
Conor met with recent Bournemouth University graduate Fleurie Forbes-Martin, a Bournemouth entrepreneur and former BU Sabbatical Officer. The purpose of this meeting was for Conor to explore new ideas to face the growing concerns of homelessness.
Conor chaired the second meeting in recent weeks of the Bourne Valley Action Group and invited Martyn Underhill, Dorset Police & Crimes Commissioner to attend. Conor’s involvement has centred on coordinating an effort to resolve the anti-social behaviour on Arne Avenue.
