Cowan Global’s Jim Cowan is well known for his work with, and in support of, charity. He has devised, developed and run a number of fund raising events over the years. Perhaps best known among these is the Race for Life, an event conceptualised, designed and launched by Jim in 1994. To date Jim’s charity events have raised in excess of £1 Billion.
In order to continue supporting charities Jim recently launched People’s Events, a social enterprise whose mission is: “To develop and organise events in partnership with, or on behalf of, charitable causes. To develop and organise events whose principle aim is to raise funds for good causes. To offer fund raising event consultancy services to charity and third sector organisations.”
Jim is Chairman of People’s Events and Cowan Global work closely with the social enterprise to help maximise their efficiency and hence the funds they raise for some great causes.
