Conference Contacts are proud to be working with
Thames Hospice in 2018
Conference Contacts are pleased to announce that Thames Hospice will be its nominated charity in 2018.
Thames Hospice is the local charity providing expert care for people living with life-limiting illnesses in East Berkshire and South Buckinghamshire.
It costs more than £7million every year to keep The Hospice running, and 80% of this income needs to come from charitable donations. The recent announcement that planning permission has been agreed to build a new, state-of-the-art hospice for the community by Bray Lake, was one of the key factors in choosing Thames Hospice for 2018.
Conference Contacts Chief Executive Denise Ellis commented:
“We were delighted to learn of the plans for the new Hospice in Bray – we are a local company, based in Maidenhead with most of our team also living locally. For me this partnership is very poignant, as the Hospice provided care to my friend Chris Kemp and his wife Lynne before Chris sadly passed away in 2017.
“It is fantastic that we can concentrate our fundraising efforts on such a worthwhile cause. The team have got lots of exciting ideas to raise funds during the year, including an Apprentice-style Car Boot Sale challenge to see who can test their entrepreneurship and raise the most cash on the day.”
Mary-Ann Leader, Corporate Fundraiser, said:
“To have Conference Contacts’ support as their chosen charity for 2018 is wonderful. To know that the whole team aims to raise vital funds and awareness of our new build plans, as well as remembering Chris is really moving. I very much look forward to working closely with the whole team, who I know are all geared up to make this partnership a fantastic success.”
