We’re Supporting Sue Ryder!

Raising funds for our charity of the year

We’re Supporting Sue Ryder!

We have chosen Sue Ryder as our charity of the year, and will support its Reading hospices through a series of fundraising events and volunteering projects, as part of our ‘Circle of Change’ initiative.

We will be supporting Sue Ryder’s local Berkshire hospices, with all the money raised going towards Duchess of Kent Hospice in Reading, Wokingham Day Hospice and Charles Clore Unit in Newbury.  Through a range of fundraising events, including the Reading Half Marathon, Club to Pub swim and charity bake off’s, we hope to raise money to support Sue Ryder and help make a difference to those who need it most.

As well as fundraising activities, we will also be offering our expertise to help support Sue Ryder, providing our award-winning event organising skills to help with fundraising brainstorms, event support and by volunteering at the local hospices.

Sue Ryder provides incredible hospice and neurological care for people facing a frightening, life changing diagnosis. The charity’s local Berkshire hospices support over 1,200 patients every year, offering a safety net for individuals and their families in times of need.

The money raised by Team Circle will help fund hospice care, patient home visits and enable the charity to continue their brilliant work within the local community.

Claire Stokes, MD and founder of Circle Agency said: “Last year we were so proud to have raised over £1,419.17 for Naomi House, and it was through this charity that we became aware of the brilliant work done by Sue Ryder within the local area. It’s fantastic to be supporting another local charity for the next 12 months, and we’re looking forward to applying our skills and experience to help raise its profile.

“We have lots of fundraising events planned throughout the year and we’re asking everyone in Circle Agency to pledge to do at least one event, hopefully this way we can maximise the amount of sponsorship we achieve for this brilliant cause.”

Benjamin Bar-Lev, corporate partnerships manager for Sue Ryder Duchess of Kent & Nettlebed Hospices commented: “I am absolutely delighted that the Circle Agency has chosen Sue Ryder Duchess of Kent Hospice as its Charity Partner for 2016. We have a whole year of exciting challenges as well as some incredible opportunities for the talented team at the Circle Agency to provide the fundraising team with some training. Here is to a successful year!”

We’ve got heaps of fundraising events coming up throughout the year, so stay tuned to hear more!
