The What’s on Guide Joins The Prince of Wales Hospice Business Network Club 5
The What’s on guide to Pontefract & Castleford were honoured to be given the opportunity to become a member of Club 5. This brand new network club for businesses has been set up by The Prince of Wales Hospice based in Pontefract, and promises unique benefits for everyone involved. The name reflects the close community within the 5 Towns.
The Club 5 business network offers outreach into the local community, specifically demonstrating support for The Prince of Wales Hospice. As Club 5 members we:
- receive an appreciation plaque to display at our premises
- can use The Prince of Wales Hospice logo.
In addition, the Hospice will actively promote The What’s on Guide on social media and through regular features in the local press. Through Club 5 they support and promote member businesses, shout out achievements or goals reached and any special or free services members are offering.
Exclusive annual networking and celebratory events will offer Club 5 members the chance to join with like-minded businesses, swap ideas and maximise the opportunities membership gives.
There are also team building and employee morale or skill boosting opportunities through special corporate volunteering days. And our dedicated account manager who will help plan our Club 5 membership and provide us with all the resources you’ll need.
In return, we’ll help raise the profile of the Hospice, bringing wider awareness of the valuable, life changing support and care they provide. The partnership will reward everyone involved, including the patients and carers whose lives they make better every day.
Tracey Mearns. Partnership Development Co-ordinator at the Hospice “We’re delighted to welcome The What’s on Guide on board as one of our Club 5 members. It costs over £3 million a year to keep our Hospice open and we only receive around 25% of this from the NHS. For the rest, our patients rely on the generosity of local people and companies.
We wanted to create the opportunity for any sized local business to help provide the 24 hour specialised care required by our patients, who each have a life limiting and progressive illness. For £250 & VAT per year, Club 5 membership gives companies like The What’s on Guide the chance to do just that – and create some potential business with other Hospice supporters at the same time!”
If you’re running a business within the 5 Towns or surrounding area, we’d love to welcome you aboard as a Club 5 member. Together we can do something amazing for our local hospice AND strengthen our business ties and opportunities.
