Burnley Bondholders

Bondholders believe that supporting students and young people gives Burnley a strong foundation for future economic growth. As many businesses of as many different types as possible are invited to do something incredibly worthwhile for the future of Burnley’s schoolchildren. This is the Bondholder ethos. There are many ways in which you can get involved to help support this.


Shuttleworth College run a successful mentoring scheme and last year 14 Bondholders took part. They require more volunteers this year, to continue this excellent work.


“It gave me the confidence to speak to people in a professional context.” -McKenna Bleasdale, Yr 11

“It was a really good, confidence-building experience. Whenever I needed my mentor, he was there.”- Kaelah Stanley, Yr 11

“As an employee of a company which is a committed and active member of the Burnley  Bondholder programme, the opportunity to support the mentoring project was something I simply could not turn down. Well done, Shuttleworth College, and well done, Burnley Bondholders – this is why the hashtag #BrilliantBurnley continues to gain momentum.” – Neil Welsh, of PM&M Accountants, on mentoring Head Boy, Lewis Naylor.
