Our other local charity is Willow Wood Hospice whom we support by being a member of their 99’ers business network. This involves contributing 99 pence a day and all the monies raised in this way goes towards the upkeep of the hospice. Did you know it costs over £2 million a year to support the hospice? The income received via this initiative will go towards the much needed annual target for the hospice equating to £2.2 million. In return for being a member of the 99’ers business network we receive Press and PR opportunities, priority knowledge of significant charity events, an advert in the Willow Wood presentation which operates in the Hospice reception area and 7 Willow Wood shops throughout the borough. We also received the use of the ‘99ers’ logo for our website and printed marketing materials along with a framed ‘99ers’ Membership Certificate which is proudly on display alongside our Pride of Tameside Business Awards in the Challenger Site Services reception.
