Bildurn is supporting its sister company, dhpfamily, as it hosts Beat the Streets on Sunday 28 January, raising money to fund Framework’s services supporting Nottingham’s rough sleepers. We know this is a subject that troubles many of us as individuals; we believe it’s an issue that should bother businesses too. But what are the facts? And what can we do to help?

Finally, Stephen Mason, MD of our sponsors, Mason Infotech, will be saying a few words on the day.
