Director and Shareholder of UCFB

Chairman and Founder of OnSide Youthzones

A highly successful businessman who has been involved in dozens of companies, Bill is a passionate philanthropist with a particular interest in providing opportunities for young people across the UK.

Overwhelmed by the positive impact of the Bolton Lads and Girls Club when he became Chairman in 2008, Bill set up OnSide Youth Zones, a charity providing safe, inspiring, state-of-the-art facilities for young people in their leisure time. Over 20,000 people already enjoy his centres, with an aim to have 100 built across the UK.

Awarded the CBE in 2013, Bill received a Beacon Award for Philanthropy and was made High Sherriff for Cheshire in 2015.
