Pruce Newman Pipework steel themselves for a year of support for EACH

Mar 15, 2017

Wymondham based company Pruce Newman Pipework are the latest local company to sign up to ​our nook business network scheme, and have pledged to raise at least £10,000 over the term of the appeal.

​We launched ​our nook appeal in November 2014. The appeal aims to raise £10 million to transform children’s palliative care across the county, which includes a new purpose-built hospice ‘the nook’  on a 5-acre woodland site in Framingham Earl just south of Norwich.

The nook business network asks for companies small, medium and large throughout Norfolk to commit to raising either £10,000, £15,000 or £25,000 over the duration of the appeal in return for a number of benefits and support that the charity will provide. More than 25 local companies have now pledged their support for the scheme.

Pruce Newman are already supporters of the charity but this year they have made a commitment to focus on the nook appeal until December 2018. Part of their fundraising includes a 2-hr endurance karting event in July, supporting ​our Golf Day in June and Race Day at Great Yarmouth Race Course in October. Their staff are also undertaking a number of personal challenges such as running events, triathlons and the annual Colour Dash.

Graham Newman, Managing Director said: “As a family firm with its roots firmly in East Anglian soil, Pruce Newman have been regular donors to EACH for as long as I can remember. The fact that EACH offers such vital support to families across the region in which Pruce Newman operates and that they concentrate on ensuring that young people, with life-limiting illnesses, can reach their full potential, resonates strongly with the ethos of our business.

“In the past, EACH has been one of several charities that Pruce Newman supports annually. This year we have made the decision to change how we donate, and will concentrate all our efforts on one charity for the whole year. We’re proud to be working with EACH this year, and in particular the Nook appeal, as we would like our support to be more targeted and effective in enabling the completion of this vital resource within 15 miles of our Head Office.  

“To this end we shall not only be setting aside a portion of our profits for the charity as usual, but utilising some of our marketing budget to develop events that not only promote our business, but support the charity at the same time. We will also of course be encouraging our staff, clients and suppliers to help us in supporting the efforts of EACH in the construction of their new purpose built facility, which will enable them to support even more families in their greatest hour of need.”

Sophie Mayes, EACH Norfolk Corporate Fundraiser, said: “We’re delighted that Pruce Newman Pipework have joined us as our 39th member of the nook business network. Graham and his team are fully dedicated to supporting local families who receive our services and we are very much look forward to working with them.”

Established in 1970, this second-generation family business employs 120 people in the East of England and provides services to some of the region’s largest companies in the food processing, energy and chemical sectors.
