A Suffolk based hotel and golf club will be focusing their attention on a new aim this year as they pledge their support for our nook appeal.
Thorpeness Hotel and Golf Club, near Aldeburgh are the latest local company to sign up to the nook business network scheme, and have pledged to raise at least £10,000 over the term of the appeal.
We launched the 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.
Thorpeness Hotel and Golf Club are already supporters of us raising £2.6k in 2016. This year is already looking like a good one for fund raising with a Golf Day in June, Thorpefest (a music festival by the Sea) on the 8th July & a Gatsby-themed ball, with 4 course dinner and live entertainment, on the 14th October.
Brad McLean from Thorpeness Hotel and Golf Club said: ‘“As a Suffolk-based business, we understand why the work done through East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices is so important for affected families, and for the whole community. We are proud to support EACH and the nook appeal.”
Sophie Mayes, EACH Norfolk Corporate Fundraiser, said: “We’re delighted that Thorpeness Hotel and Golf Club have pledged their support for our business network and are committed to helping make our vision of a new hospice for local life-threatened children and their families a reality.
“We need the support of all sectors of the Norfolk community – individuals, schools, community groups and of course the business sector to achieve our fundraising target , so support from the team at Thorpeness is fantastic and we very much look forward to working with them.”
