Last September saw the creation of Severalls Business Group – a community established to bring together the businesses within Colchester’s Severalls Business and Industrial Park in order to encourage networking, support and growth.
Many of the businesses within the group have now come together to take part in the Birkett Long £50 Challenge; donated by Birkett Long LLP, local businesses who wish to participate are given £50 towards their project and have 4 months to raise as much money as possible.
Sarah Bays of Century Office and co-founder of Severalls Business Group said, “What started as a bit of a joke at our first meeting has now become a reality, and we are delighted to have so many businesses from the park taking part. St Helena Hospice holds a special place in the hearts of businesses and residents alike, and this is a chance for us to offer our support. We hope to encourage other organisations on the park to take part by sponsoring advertising in the calendar, which will have been entirely produced with the support of businesses.”
businesses from the Severalls Business Group have created a calendar for St Helena Hospice to raise money for the charity. Each company was allocated a specific
month and has created a photo that represents an event that the hospice runs
throughout the year – all of which are seasonally themed. Century
Office have the theme of “Skydiving” and their month is July.
The other companies that have taken part are Mosaic Publicity, Newsquest, Edmundson Electrical, Wallis Shipping, Rose Calendars, Cliqq Photography, MyRuby, Reed Care Homes, CCD Global Events, Essential Selection Recruitment and Cloud9 Business Coaching.
Sarah Wilson of St Helena Hospice commented “It is wonderful to have Severalls Business Group involved with the Birkett Long £50 Challenge for 2018. Since the inception in 2012 the challenge has raised over £230,000 and hopefully this year will be another great success thanks to the local companies taking part like SBG. Some of the companies within the networking group have taken part previously but it’s great to see them all join together to form a team and work towards turning their £50 into much more for St Helena.”
Mosaic Publicity will be promoting the project while CliQQ Photography provided a professional studio space for 2 days as well as the photography. The calendar is expected to go on sale in August.
