Second Mountain Communications has become the first business in #Bath to join Children’s Hospice South West’s brand-new Business Club and is urging other companies to help make a difference for local children with life-limiting illnesses and their families.
The CHSW Business Club aims to recruit 100 businesses in 2021, each paying £300 for their membership helping the charity to raise £30,000 in what is its 30th anniversary year. Second Mountain Comms, established in 2020 during the first national lockdown, is a specialist consultancy that provides meaningful content, PR and marketing strategy services. It works exclusively with ethical and purpose-driven companies and charities. Its founder Ben Veal, an experienced PR and marketing professional and former journalist, said: “The events of the last 12 months have shown us all, without question, how precious life is and what’s truly important. Children’s Hospice South West is such a truly special organisation that provides care, friendship and support to children and families across the region, and so it’s a real privilege to have become one of the first companies to have joined the brand new CHSW Business Club.
By coming together as a community of like-minded businesses, we can collectively help the charity to reach its fundraising target of £30,000 for its 30th anniversary year; an incredible milestone and one that should be celebrated. I'm very proud to be part of this newly-launched Business Club with a purpose and encourage others to get involved too.” There are a range of benefits to joining the CHSW Business Club including building connections, raising awareness of your business and, crucially, helping make a difference to local families. £30,000 could pay for 1,500 hours of care provided by CHSW’s multidisciplinary care team. Whether it be making home visits, hosting virtual therapy sessions, or providing end-of-life care in one of its hospices, you’ll be helping families who need CHSW now more than ever.
Since the founding of the charity in 1991, CHSW now has three children’s hospices in the South West: Little Bridge House in North Devon, Charlton Farm in North Somerset, and Little Harbour in Cornwall. The hospice teams provide vital care to over 500 children with life limiting illnesses and offer much needed support to families.
