“We have chosen Cynthia Spencer as our Charity of year as we have seen the effects terminal illness has on patients and their family and friends first hand through our own peers and also the industry that we are in. As Cynthia Spencer is a local hospice we need to try to raise much needed funds to support the amazing care that the hospice provides to their patients and families.”

Sian Stone, Business Manager

“Cynthia Spencer are a charity that we hold close to our hearts after co-owner of dbfb, Bill Oliver, sadly passed away in the hospice in 2016. The support and care given to Bill was absolutely incredible. We are touched by the hard work and passion that every Cynthia Spencer team member puts into their role, with the patients at the heart of everything they do. This is why we have chosen the Hospice as our charity of the year, we take great pleasure being able to give back to the Northamptonshire community in this way.”

Katherine Hamilton, Financial Analyst

GPW Consulting Limited

"We chose you as both myself and Neil lost our Dads prematurely to cancer and really believe in and support what the hospice does for people suffering with life-limiting illnesses and their families. We feel people should be made more aware and offer more support to ensure you can keep providing the amazing support and service you do."

Jaguar Land Rover

“Guy Salmon has been working with Cynthia Spencer Hospice for the last three years and we’re really happy with the partnership we have built over this time and the fun we’ve had along the way. Whether it’s fundraising by dressing up for sales events, putting together their Forget-Me-Not display at Castle Ashby, or having a donation box in the dealerships and encouraging staff and customers to bring us their unwanted goodies which can help stock the Donation Station and many more activities. Cynthia Spencer is the perfect choice, as it’s close to so many of us in different ways and we enjoy being able to give back to such a special establishment in our community. We are very much looking forward to seeing what we can do next year.”

Jelka Ivanovic – Business Administrator

Debbie Alford, Business Development Manager

Northampton Life

"At Northampton Life Magazine we have chosen to support Cynthia Spencer as it was voted for by the public as the charity of the year through publication. With this, we felt it would be right to help raise the profile and awareness of everything the hospice does and help showcase the events coming up in 2019. The hospice relies on Northamptonshire businesses' support, with fun events and ways to do so, it was a no brainer to collaborate."

Lisa Scott, Editor

 

Northamptonshire Partnership Homes

"Team NPH has chosen to support Cynthia Spencer every year since our 2015 launch. Many of our colleagues have experienced the incredible care and support the hospice provides when friends or family members have been terminally ill. This strong connection to a local charity really helps to drive fundraising activities and motivates our team to organise events in their own time. Choosing a charity of the year not only raises much needed funds for a great cause, but brings teams together and boosts morale. We are overwhelmed by the generosity of our team and immensely proud of the fundraising results they consistently achieve."

Hannah Benusan, Communications Manager

We are proud to sponsor them every year; they touch a lot of people’s lives, almost everyone knows someone who has been helped by Cynthia Spencer Hospice locally.  On a personal level we have had first hand experience of the fantastic palliative care they provide.”

Jane Stevens Dip PFS, Independent Financial Adviser, Owner

"We are excited to be working with Cynthia Spencer Hospice this year and have picked them to be our Northampton Charity of the Year for 2019. After witnessing the fantastic things they do, and seeing the Hospice and Warehouse, we knew straightaway that this was a Charity that we would love to help and support this year. We are looking forward to sorting through the many items they receive in the warehouse, help with some gardening at the Hospice grounds, and also complete our own fundraising events to raise money for Cynthia Spencer. As a team, we love volunteering and helping our local community, and cannot wait to get started!"

 What is a Charity of the Year adoption? 

 Christmas donation

A Charity of the Year Adoption is an effective way for businesses to focus their approach to charitable giving and actively involve employees, whilst helping a charity to achieve greater financial security and enhanced community support. The key elements of these partnerships are that the business chooses one main charity to support over a specific time period, usually ranging from one to two years. The partnership is designed to be of mutual benefit and often, although not always, involves the company’s staff in some way. With so many options for staff fundraising this can also be a great opportunity for team building or just simply to have some fun!

This support can range from the more exhilarating and adventurous activities such as running marathons, climbing mountains, trekking across deserts to participating in our own events; from our Cycle4Cynthia ride to our Colour Run event. Or maybe you’d like to organise your own events from holding cake sales or fundraising balls, your employees will be raising money for the charity whilst having a great deal of fun and, importantly, working better together as a team. What’s more, with Charity of the Year partnerships increasingly lasting more than one year; this means the company can have a deeper relationship with the charity. We would be delighted to extend the charity partnership for a length of time that matches your company's needs.
