Financial Firm Fundraises for the nook

Aug 05, 2015

East Anglian company ML Financial Associates has become the latest business to offer their support for the nook appeal which aims to raise £10 million to build a new purpose-built children’s hospice in the heart of Norfolk

ML Financial Associates, independent financial advisors with offices in both Wymondham and Northampton, who offer the full range of financial services to both individuals and companies across the East Anglian region have joined forces with EACH by signing up to their new corporate scheme the nook business network. 

ML are conscious of the role that local business plays within the community that they reside in, which in this case, is the same community that EACH supports local life threatened children and their families and it is this reason that the Directors of ML have decided to support the appeal.  Not only will ML look to raise significant funds to help make the new children’s hospice a reality they will also look to promote the appeal and create awareness amongst their client base to encourage further support.

Simon Lister, Director, ML Financial Associates, said: We have offices in Wymondham and Northampton and see the great work that EACH does and is a charity that is close to our hearts.  We feel our business is a perfect fit with the charity which offers vital care and support to families across the region.  We’re dedicated to helping EACH achieve their goal to build the nook and make a real difference to peoples lives.

Gary Cook, the nook appeal corporate fundraiser, said: “ I’m delighted that Simon, David, Craig and their team have chosen to support our nook appeal for a new children’s hospice which will really benefit local families going through an unimaginably difficult time in their lives.
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 ML’s support is fantastic.  We have worked with the team at ML previously and I am in doubt that their enthusiasm, forward thinking,  creative, can-do approach will see them not only achieve but better their target and we very much look forward to working with them moving forwards."
