St Luke’s Hospice is launching an exciting scheme for businesses, enabling them to help people in their local area. ‘Business Buddies’ encourages local companies to join in partnership with St Luke’s, supporting them to provide care in the communities where their staff and families live and work.

Claire Langston, Director of Income at St Luke’s said, “Becoming a Business Buddy is a really great way to give back to local people. Support from local businesses is so valuable to our hospice. It helps us to serve our community by providing so many important services that improve the quality of life for those with life threatening illnesses, as well as their families.”

Businesses and their staff are able to support St Luke’s in a variety of ways, including contributing via a regular monthly donation, participating in events and community programs and joining the St Luke’s Lottery.

Those who partner with St Luke’s will receive a variety of benefits in addition to the great feeling that comes with helping the local community. Business Buddies will receive invites to networking events, recognition on the St Luke’s website and social media together with a certificate of membership.

Pictured at the Lion Salt Works Marston, the forthcoming venue for the launch networking event of Business Buddies, are Kate Harland, Learning & Operations Manager at Lion Salt Works and Damon Cripps, Corporate Business Partner at St Luke’s.

To become a St Luke’s Business Buddy please contact Damon Cripps at St Luke’s Hospice at damon_cripps@stlukes-hospice.co.uk or 01606 555 246.

St Luke’s needs to raise £8,600 each day to enable the Hospice to provide free care and support to local people. For every £1 donated to St Luke’s 85p goes to patient care, while the remaining 15p helps us to raise another pound.
