Willow Wood is a state-of-the-art purpose built Hospice located on the borders of Ashton and Stalybridge. Situated in a tranquil location within the Tameside Borough the Hospice provides a better quality of life and provides specialist palliative care for individuals suffering life threatening and terminal illnesses.
The Hospice has been established for over 20 years and they are reliant on volunteers and fundraising activities to guarantee the smooth operation and excellent care required to ensure the Hospice can operate to the excellent standards it does. A little known fact is that Willow Wood Hospice has cared for an incredible 4,000 patients and their families since it opened its doors in 1999.
All the staff and the army of volunteers are committed to the Hospice and the requirements of all the patients and their relatives.
At Challenger Site Services we are proud to be supporting a local charity, being part of the community and local business network. Without sounding selfish we know the charity can also bring huge benefits for us in a business sense and it helps the community as a whole.
The ‘99ers’ Business Club has been great for us as a way of supporting and helping the charity without donating large amounts of money all at once. We know since we started over 25 years ago how difficult it can be for smaller businesses to sponsor fundraising initiatives due to the amount of cash flow to hand at any particular time. That is why the ‘99ers’ Business Club is an ideal way of supporting a local charity. A business can donate 99p a day accumulating to £30 per month in total and you can also pay on a direct debit too. The income received via this initiative will go towards the much needed annual target for the Hospice equating to £2.2 million.
The benefits we receive include:
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 ‘99er’ 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.
