Pigeon Investment Management pays for a day of care

Sep 20, 2017

Pigeon Investment Management is paying for a day of care and support from EACH across Suffolk today.

It costs the charity £5,300 a day to deliver our service in the county and Pigeon, an entrepreneurial property company in Bury St Edmunds, has managed to raise that amount through taking part in the town’s Colour Dash last year, a silent auction, bake sales and more.

Richard Stanton, Director of Pigeon, said: “Pigeon Investment Management has been delighted to support such a highly deserving local charity, which is working very hard to help so many children and their families during incredibly difficult times.

“A big team effort enabled us to reach the fundraising target of £5,300 and we’d like to thank all members of staff, friends, family and our investors for their generosity.

“We’ve chosen EACH as our preferred charity for another year and are looking forward to some more fundraising initiatives.”

To mark Pigeon’s success members of staff have today been given a tour of The Treehouse, EACH’s hospice in Ipswich.

Vicky Matthews, Suffolk Corporate Fundraiser, said: “This is yet another great example of the business community in Suffolk supporting EACH. We need to bring in more than £5 million from fundraising every year so we really can’t emphasise enough how much this kind of help is appreciated.

“A big thank you to everyone at Pigeon for their efforts and we look forward to continuing our relationship into the future.”

  • When we first heard about the hospice we were apprehensive because we didn’t know what to expect. When we got there we realised it was a lovely place where Renee would be well looked after, and we would be able to have a much-needed break. Stacy, Renee’s mum
  • The play specialists are excellent and I also get inspiration from the activities they organise. Heather, Lucy’s mum
  • I really love going to the hospice. I’ve made friends there and get to do loads of fun stuff. Renee
  • I didn’t realise hope was a gift until I became a mum. My little boy taught me many things and that was one of them Claire, Jacob’s mum
  • EACH helped us with coping mechanisms and special ways of remembering Stanley. Brad, Stanley's Dad
  • We arrived at the hospice feeling scared and alone. We had so many questions – they answered them all and more. Claire, Jacob’s mum

  • EACH has helped us keep Stanley’s memory alive. And allows us to look to the future Brad, Stanley's Dad
  • We are also supported by the 24/7 True Colours nurses and it’s so reassuring knowing we can call on them whenever we need support or advice Helen, William’s mum
  • Children like Lucy don’t get the opportunity to go to sleepovers or to their friends for tea, so the interaction she has at the hospice is priceless. Heather, Lucy’s mum
  • I can’t imagine what it would have been like. Nobody should have to, every family should be offered the support we were, and are still getting Claire, Jacob’s mum
  • It’s been a great opportunity to meet other parents in a similar situation, something that doesn't really happen anywhere else. Helen, William’s mum
  • EACH supports families when they’re at their absolute lowest, helping them to come to terms with their child’s illness, losing them and beyond Brad, Stanley's Dad
  • Renee loves going to The Treehouse, but it’s great that care staff are also able to visit us at home too. Stacy, Renee’s mum
