City Drive 2016

Next week is Birmingham City Drive – an event devised by Digbeth’s iSE to promote the fantastic work social enterprises are doing in Birmingham.

The aim of #BrumCityDrive is to encourage more people to engage with social enterprises, by buying from them, working/volunteering for them, or investing/starting a social enterprise.
