Children’s Hospice South West has launched a brand-new initiative for companies based across the South West – the CHSW Business Club. The charity is encouraging others to join with them to show their support for CHSW’s work with local children and families in what is its milestone 30th anniversary year.
Fifteen businesses have kick-started the Club by becoming Founding Members. These include: The IT Storeroom, ABL (South West) Ltd, Moon Executive Search, National Friendly Financial Solutions (NFFS), Triangle Networks, Wise Coaching, Smarter Changes, Polymermedics Ltd, Circular and Co, Watson-Marlow Ltd, Phoneta, Kinetic Energy, The Exeter, Porter Dodson and Western Counties Roofing.
The CHSW Business Club has been set up with the aim of recruiting 100 businesses in 2021, each paying £300 for their membership, which could see £30,000 being raised for the charity in its 30th year.
Paul Courtney, Director of Fundraising at CHSW, said: “We’re urging companies to stand with local children and families and help us raise £30,000 which could pay for 1,500 hours of care. Whether it be providing home visits, virtual therapy sessions, or end-of-life care in one of our hospices, you’ll be helping to make a difference to families who need us now more than ever.”
There are a range of benefits to joining the CHSW Business Club including building connections, raising awareness of your business and, crucially, helping make a difference to local children with life-limiting illnesses and their families.
