Recently, our two-year partnership with our amazing friends at Unum, one of the leading employee benefits providers in the UK, came to an end. During the course of the partnership, Unum raised over £47,000 in vital funds for Naomi House & Jacksplace.
The team from Basingstoke got involved with fundraising activities right from the start. They took part in ultra challenges, hosted charity quiz nights and car washes, volunteered in our gardens, and put on summer parties, amongst many other creative fundraising activities!
Through all of their efforts across the two year partnership, they managed to raise an incredible £47,909 for our hospices. This could help fund over 2,000 hours of expert nursing care for children and young adults with life limiting conditions.
Susan Sanderson, Head of Responsible Business at Unum, said:
What we have been able to achieve in two years to support the wonderful team at Naomi House & Jacksplace is really amazing. We are so very proud of all of our employees for the many ways they got involved to raise such a fantastic amount, for such a worthy cause.
We will so miss the wonderful team at Naomi House & Jacksplace, especially the ever-energetic and fabulous Connor, but are always on-hand to provide support again in the future when we can. Thank you Connor and the team for making it such an impactful, fun and engaging partnership!
Connor Phillips, Senior Fundraiser at Naomi House & Jacksplace, said:
To every single person at Unum, THANK YOU! It’s honestly been an incredible two years getting to work with you and we couldn’t have wished for a better partnership. I have personally loved getting the chance not only to attend and meet you at your events, but see the dedication and hard work that you've put in to supporting the children and young adults in our care.
I really hope that each and every one of you realise how much of a difference you have made to our families over the past two years. I say it a lot, but without companies like Unum doing the amazing things they do, we just can’t provide the care and support our children and young adults need.
From everyone at Naomi House & Jacksplace, THANK YOU for everything you have done for us!
