The team behind the #WeMakeICTPossible digital poverty campaign have officially launched The Musketeers C.I.C.
The Musketeers C.I.C is a community-based organisation committed to championing community focused projects linking local businesses to gain wider audience participation to charitable causes both locally and nationally.
The company was originally founded in October 2020 by Gary Jordan (MD of GMJ Solutions and Chair of Mansfield and Ashfield 2020), Martin Rigley (MD of Lindhurst Engineering and Chair of Discover Ashfield) and Katie Cooper-Lewis (Director of Grace Consultancy (Midlands) Limited) to formalise the trio’s partnership and act as a conduit for their #WeMakeICTPossible campaign.
The three business owners have worked together for several years on various community focused projects and in July 2021 converted the Musketeers company to a community interest company in order to support further community causes.
Katie Cooper-Lewis, one of The Musketeers, said “Forget the strap line ‘All for one, one for all’, The Musketeers C.I.C. is all about ‘Together We Achieve More – T.E.A.M.’. Our local area has a number of issues but it is also has a number of great causes trying to tackle those issues. Our mission is to champion these projects, as well as initiate new projects where needed, and use our local, regional and national business networks to link forces and provide Mansfield and Ashfield with the tools and support its need to tackle issues and raise the opportunities for current and future generations”.
