Hampshire Cultural Trust has announced its first founding corporate partner Be Wiser Business Insurance.
The company, which is based in Andover, has donated £2,500 and pledged 30 hours of volunteering time to the charitable trust.
Students from the Be Wiser Academy will dedicate their time as volunteers in the trust’s venues and exhibitions.
The partnership will see the organisations working together to champion Hampshire.
Be Wiser chairman Mark Bower-Dyke said: ‘We recognise the importance that culture, arts and heritage play in our society.
‘We are therefore delighted to play an important role in its sustainability by becoming Hampshire Cultural Trust’s first corporate partner.
‘In addition the volunteers will be able to contribute to its vital work whilst gaining insight and inspiration which are important qualities for the success of our business.’
Hampshire Cultural Trust, was launched last year to bring world class culture to Hampshire.
