Bloomin Buds is an organisation that encapsulates what it means to be working class while not letting negative stereotypes define you, which is an inspiring ethos that I identify with personally. The opportunity to be a director of this innovative company is both a privilege and a pleasure. Who knows where our work – with opportunity and wellbeing at the forefront – will stretch to?

Bloomin’ Buds is a pioneering working-class company with exceptionally strong roots in the communities of Bradford. This is still so unusual – though it shouldn’t be. I am proud to have helped nurture many of the artists Bloomin’ Buds is working with and excited to see the collaboration moving forward in a bigger, more ambitious way. I look forward to helping support the development of this important company in difficult times.

I have watched Bloomin’ Buds with interest and admiration since their first performance.  When faced with challenges and closed doors, many would give up, but Bloomin’ Buds do the opposite.  Their passion to create opportunities for themselves and others is palpable.  I’m so proud to be part of what they are trying to do, and look forward with excitement to what happens next.
