Children’s Hospice South West (CHSW) is helping businesses in Cornwall build connections and raise their profile in 2022, while working together to make a difference to children living with life-limiting conditions and their families.

The charity, which runs three children’s hospices including Little Harbour in St Austell, is inviting a limited number of local businesses to be part of its 2022 Business Club.

First set up in 2021, when businesses were in a state of flux, the Club provided opportunities for businesses to continue to network and raise awareness while supporting a vital local charity also navigating its way through the uncertainty of the pandemic.

Bernadette Chambers, Area Fundraiser for CHSW said: “Membership to the Club not only provides the opportunity to raise your business’ profile at exclusive networking events, and enhance your social media exposure, but will also impact positively on staff morale and contribute to meeting your corporate social responsibility objectives.”

Mike Bee, Director of Big Box Advertising and member of the CHSW Business Club, said his company had no hesitations about joining the CHSW Business Club.

“It was a way we could support CHSW while also promoting our own business,” he said.

“We gained new business from contacts we made which was absolutely fantastic; I would thoroughly recommend joining.”

Since the start of the pandemic CHSW’s three children’s hospices, including Little Harbour, have adapted their model of care in order to support children and families when and where they need it most. The hospice teams now provide home visits, virtual support, resilience stays as well as respite, end of life care and bereavement support.

More than 145 local children, their parents and siblings are currently supported by Little Harbour. The cost of this vital care, a lifeline to families, is over £3 million each year.

Joining the CHSW Business Club costs just £300, less than £1 a day, and provides a year of opportunities, as well as the knowledge that your business is part of a family of supporters ensuring CHSW is there for local families now and in the future.
