Charity of the year partners 2020

Join us in 2020 as one of our Charity of the Year Partners

In 2020, we are inviting businesses to partner with us to aim to raise a minimum £3,000 each and become a Charity of the Year Business Partner to support our mission. We will offer you the opportunity to create a bespoke partnership to meet the aims and objectives of both your business and your staff development. You will work closely with an account executive to make sure these objectives are met.

Benefits will include but are not limited to:

• Brand enhancement and positive PR through social media channels, newsletters and news coverage as well as various publications and the website

• Increase in staff morale and development

• Recognition around the hospice to recognise you as a 2020 Charity of the Year Business Partner

• Invites to special events such as panel discussions and suppers with the CEO

• Invites to exclusive networking events with anniversary partners

Raising £3,000 can be through a variety of initiatives which could include:

• In-house fundraising- bake sales, dress down days, quiz nights

• Take part in our corporate events such as our Woolly Pully Week or Ridefest

• Sponsor one of our events or campaigns

There are also opportunities to take part in activities such as:

• Employer supported volunteering e.g. a charity shop take over – pit your team against other local businesses and see who can boost the earnings of one of our stores the most. How would you increase footfall and sales for the day?

• Donating to our stores through a donation station

• Recycling – phones, ink cartridges, coins and stamps

What our Charity of the Year partners from 2019 said:

“As a small family run business in the heart of the town we try to focus on being part of our local community, getting involved with local events and getting to know our customers well is important to us as we feel it helps to build lasting relationships. We wanted to be part of the 30th Anniversary
fund raising for St Elizabeth’s Hospice because we felt it would be the perfect way of giving something back to the local community, they do such amazing work and the fund raising team are so passionate and dedicated to the work they do it makes us very proud to get involved and support them however we can.” - Jacey's Coffee Shop.


Curtis Banks are proud supporters of the St Elizabeth Hospice and the Elmer campaign. We have supported St Elizabeth Hospice many times over the years, as the Hospice’s care and support has been invaluable to the families of some of our staff, and we’re determined to make our partnership this year a real success to help benefit such a worthwhile cause. We’re very grateful to have been supported by the brilliant team at St Elizabeth Hospice with a variety of fun fundraising activities which have raised significant funds for the Hospice so far this year.”


At Nationwide Stowmarket we chose to support St Elizabeth Hospice because of the great work it had done for a former colleague at the branch last year. We felt it was close to all of our hearts and wanted to give something back. The support and communication we have received from the hospice as a charity of the year supporter has been amazing. Its been great to be able to speak to somebody for advice or support with any event we plan on holding.

The George Baker Group is a shipping and logistics company predominantly based at the Port of Felixstowe. Since 1982 we have been providing specialist customs clearance services, accompanied by a high quality range of logistics services which include European Road Freight, International Freight Forwarding and Customs Warehousing

As a Suffolk based, family business, it has long been a consideration of ours to give back to our community and partner with a fantastic local charity like the Hospice, who do so much to support local families in such difficult circumstances.

Whilst some of our staff have already witnessed first-hand how the hospice has provided comfort to members of their own family, the sad reality is that many more will be likely to go through the same experiences later on in their life. For that very reason, we hope that we can play our part and ensure the Hospice can continue helping those who so desperately need it

Mediterranean Shipping Company (UK) Ltd. is an award-winning shipping company offering an integrated network of road, rail and ocean freight services. MSC UK is wholly owned by Mediterranean Shipping Company S.A., a world leader in container shipping.

Whilst MSC UK offers all the advantages and security of a major global business, we’ve maintained our personal, solutions-led approach, working closely with our customers to build stable, long-lasting relationships. Our UK headquarters are based in Ipswich, Suffolk.

Charitable giving is an important part of our company culture here at MSC UK and every year we ask our staff to nominate good causes they’re closely connected with or particularly passionate about. This year we’re pleased to announce St Elizabeth Hospice as our Charity of the Year and we look forward to working closely with and supporting this important local organisation throughout 2020.
