We are delighted to announce that Faith PR and its sister business, marketing consultancy kloog has become the 30th business to sign up to the Forget Me Not Children’s Hospice 99ers fundraising initiative.
The 99er Scheme asks businesses to pledge 99p a day to help the Bradley-based Children’s Hospice meet its annual £2.5m fundraising target.
We decided to join the scheme after hearing about it at this year’s Kirklees Business Conference.
Kloog managing director Carl Hopkins says: “We’re proud to have become a Forget Me Not 99er. The Hospice does an amazing job, giving vital support to local children with life-limiting conditions and their families.
“We hope that our monthly donation will help provide a sustainable source of income and contribute to the annual fundraising target. It is a privilege to support the scheme.”
Fundraising for The Forget Me Not Children’s Hospice began 12 years ago by a local mother whose son needed to access children’s hospice services. The community backing meant that two years ago the hospice started to support families in their own homes and now care for over 50 families in this way.
The charity has recently opened a bricks and mortar hospice offering treatment, day and residential care for children and their families.
Jason Costello, partnership development manager at the hospice adds: “It’s great when respected businesses such as kloog and Faith PR get involved with the Forget Me Not Children’s Hospice. Carl and Stefanie understand that in becoming the 30th 99er, they will be helping deliver sustainable funding which key for the children’s hospice to provide care and support to children and families who live in our communities”.
The hospice hopes to sign up many more businesses to its 99ers scheme and will hold regular networking events once the initial target of 99 members is reached.
