Kixx sign up to join The Kirkwood Business Movement

We are delighted to welcome Kixx as one of the 12 founding members of The Kirkwood Business Movement.

The team behind the Kixx programme, which offers a high energy, fun, creative and age-appropriate introduction to physical activity for youngsters through football, are backing The Kirkwood Business Movement..

Kixx became a founding member of our movement back in April and will work closely with our team to create new opportunities and forge strong bonds with other local businesses. They will also receive our commitment to stand side by side with them, supporting their employers, their workforce and their local community in any way we can. 

Emphasising both physical and social development for youngsters, the Kixx programme has been carefully designed for both boys and girls, ages 18 months to 10 years of age, and also offers a great opportunity for children to make friends.

Kixx’s ambition is to have a positive impact on every child at every opportunity.

Matt Ellison, Director at Kixx, is proud to have joined The Kirkwood Business Movement.

He said: “We are thrilled to be among the first to sign up to The Kirkwood Business Movement.

“We chose to join as we really want to be able to give something back to our local community and also meet like-minded local businesses in the process.

“Being a part of The Kirkwood Business Movement will always have a positive effect on our business. As a small business, working with a local charity just goes hand in hand. We’re looking forward to working alongside The Kirkwood team.

Jess Lees, Business Development Manager with The Kirkwood, said: “We’re delighted that Kixx have pledged their support for our new venture. More than a business club or a networking opportunity, our aim is to create a movement for good, bringing like-minded businesses who are passionate about caring for the most vulnerable here in Kirklees together, and we’re delighted that the team at Kixx share that passion.

“No one knows and loves our local area more than local businesses who live and work locally. Kixx are a local business whose aims align closely with our own – to have a positive impact on the lives of local people. We can’t wait to work with them.”

As part of The Kirkwood’s commitment to every business who joins our Business Movement, we’ll provide a bespoke induction for a nominated champion within each business to help them support colleagues affected by any life limiting illness.

The Kirkwood Business Movement will offer members lots of the benefits you might expect such as networking events, opportunities to reach new audiences and resources to use as part of their marketing.

And we’ll also give businesses all the tools they need to support their employees and help them to understand more about The Kirkwood’s life changing work so that, if they ever need us, they will know how to reach out for help.”
