Businesses are being encouraged to rally together and show their support for the vital work of a leading children’s hospice. East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices (EACH) has launched its Business Circle – a new corporate venture open to companies across Norfolk, Suffolk, Cambridgeshire and Essex.
It will give them a chance to build connections and attend networking events, while at the same time making a financial commitment to EACH.
The cost is £1,000 a year, including VAT, and Business Circle membership includes the chance to visit one of the charity’s hospices – The Nook, near Norwich, The Treehouse, in Ipswich, and at Milton, near Cambridge.
There will also be opportunities to sponsor events at a discounted rate, in addition to being a host venue for networking functions.
“What better time to officially launch our new Business Circle than during Children’s Hospice Week?,” said EACH Corporate Fundraising Manager Caroline Allen.
“This national awareness week is so important for everyone here, to raise funds and heighten understanding of our vital work. We rely on voluntary donations and a key part of our fundraising income comes from corporate friends and supporters.
“This is a very special opportunity to cement that commitment, by pledging a certain amount every year – money that will make a tangible difference to the families, children and young people receiving our care and support.
“It’s also a golden opportunity for companies to come together and join us at one of our quarterly networking events. It will give them an opportunity to make new contacts and forge connections with businesses across East Anglia.”
Members will also have the benefit of PR opportunities, have exclusive use of the Business Circle logo for internal communications, be featured on EACH’s dedicated Business Circle webpage and be listed in EACH’s Report and Accounts.
They will also have the opportunity to be a keynote speaker at networking events, feature in EACH social media posts and receive tailored updates on EACH’s work.
“We already have a Giving Circle for Major Doners and Supporters but are now very proud to introduce our Business Circle,” added Caroline.
“Those who sign up will be helping us continue our vital work, offering a family-centred, needs-led approach to care and ensuring all the needs of the children and young people we care for are met – whether that be psychological, physical, emotional, social or spiritual.”
