Forget Me Not Children's Hospice 99er's
This week saw the second running of Forget Me Not Children's Hospice 99er's business network event at Hipperholme Grammar School.
A children's hospice is a serious business!
Forget me not recently launched their 99er membership scheme. They are looking for big hearted businesses to become founding 99ers, companies who will commit to donating just 99p a day to the Forget Me Not Children’s Hospice, helping them to put smiles on the faces of children and families who, for many reasons, have very little to smile about, during this most difficult of times.
Becoming a member of their 99er initiative will provide positive publicity for your company and your regular monthly donation will help to provide a sustainable source of income for the hospice, helping them to achieve their annual fundraising target of £2.5 million.Every three months Forget Me Not hosts a business network event for its 99er's and also for any other business that would be interested in becoming a 99er
This was the second event and was kindly hosted by Hipperholme Grammar School. Besides having a chance for businesses to network, the evening included a short introduction by Jason Costello the Hospice's Partenership Development Manager and short talks by the Hospice's Chief Executive Peter Branson, Richard Gage North of England Regional Head of Orchard Energy and Sue Oliver Head of Marketing & Admissions at Hipperholme Grammar School.
Forget Me Not have a proud history of working closely with businesses ranging from sole traders to multi-million pound companies. Support from all types of local businesses can help to make a real difference to the lives of the local children, young people and families who rely on The Forget Me Not Children’s Hospice.
Wilson Vale Catering Hipperholme Grammar's own caterers kindly supplied some delicious canope's for the attendees.
