In our continuing support of the wonderful Grace House, we are pleased to become a proud member of their “Network for Good” business club.
The charity, who have been based in Sunderland for over 10 years provide services for disabled children aged 0-25 years and family carers living with them across our region.
The business club launch comes in the wake of what has been a very difficult time for many charities, with the Covid-19 pandemic affecting their fundraising and many services having to be adapted to enable them to continue providing essential support to their families.
Corporate fundraiser, Laura Forbes, had the initial idea of bringing businesses together to not only provide excellent networking opportunities for members but to also help with mentoring, training and to inspire business within the group, whilst also supporting a fantastic local charity.
Laura commented, “I am thrilled to be launching the business group and hope it benefits our members in a time when we all need to support each other. We very much rely on the support and kindness of businesses and this has been made more evident during the last year. Their support enables us to keep on providing our families with the services they depend upon; this is now even more critical with many children and carers feeling more isolated due to lockdown restrictions.
I’m really excited about our launch event and look forward to growing the club throughout the North East.”
