As our financial year comes to an end, it is time to announce the total monies raised by the company for our designated charity.
Our dedicated charity team: Mary Goldsmith and Kim Hynes have worked tirelessly over the year arranging events for the charity such as quiz nights, sweepstakes and accumulator challenges as well as our monthly charity dress downs and regular raffles. We are delighted to report that we raised the grand total of £3,204.81 for Ipswich based St Elizabeth Hospice. We believe this is a record amount raised in one year and hope that next year will be even higher!
This was our second year of supporting St Elizabeth Hospice and we are pleased to announce that we will be continuing to raise money for them for the next year also. As well as our fundraising activities, we are hoping to start a volunteer programme with some of the employees from IPPlus. “Whilst continuing to raise funds for this fantastic charity is still as important as ever, we realise that time is just as valuable.” Says Christian Pawsey, Managing Director of Ansaback. “As one of the larger employers in the town, we would like to donate some of our working hours to the hospice and are devising a volunteering scheme to implement in the coming months”.
St Elizabeth Hospice improves life for people living with a progressive illness. They provide a range of services across East Suffolk and Waveney. The independent charity provides services free of charge. These services cost £9.1 million a year to run, with almost three quarters of that figure coming from the local community. The hospice relies on the generosity of supporters who help in many ways such as volunteering, fundraising, donating and supporting shops.
