Our Charity Members
"The CBG has introduced us to to suppliers who have a genuine commitment in supporting small charities. BCT is a living testimony that the suppliers who are members of the CBG offer quality, competitive prices and after sales service, which has played a pivotal role in strengthening the bond between BCT and CBG. As a small charity where cost and time is paramount, having a 'one stop shop' has been invaluable to us. We are very grateful for all that CBG is doing and has done for us and would strongly recommend any charity to join CBG. The integrity and excellency of CBG makes it a pleasure for me to give the highest recommendation to anyone who is planning to join the Charities Buying Group.

The money saved is money that can be put to the purposes of which the charity or organisation was set up to undertake"

have no hesitation in recommending them to other organisations"

to grow steadily with charities enrolling on a regular basis"

"In the ten years we have worked with the
CBG we have found it to be an excellent introduction platform to the charity
and not for profit sector. The dedication of the CBG staff has helped with much
business whilst at the same time helping CBG members make considerable cost

no hesitation in recommending you consider becoming a charity member or
