Cavendish Corporate Wellbeing supports our cancer care services and your business

For over 30 years, Cavendish Cancer Care have provided care for those affected by cancer within South Yorkshire, North Derbyshire and Nottinghamshire. We are an independent charity, with extremely limited statutory funding, and are exceptionally thankful for the incredible partnerships we have with local organisations and individuals.

The global pandemic has pushed the health and wellbeing of people to the forefront of the corporate agenda with 46% of UK workers feeling “more prone to extreme stress levels” than last year. Strategic partnerships manager, Kirsty White, says, “more and more businesses are sharing the pressure of having employee wellbeing at the top of their agenda. We are pleased to be one of the only local charities able to offer something back to our partners. This is an exciting new direction providing value to our corporate partners while also providing much needed funding to our Tim Pryor Centre.”

Our values in Corporate Wellbeing echo those of our brand as a charity; long term positive wellbeing, communication and individuality with no judgement. Our objectives include an increase in employee engagement, an improvement to local economy (ROI of corporate wellbeing interventions is up to 8:1) and additional therapeutic care, along with a general boost of Yorkshire community pride!

We’d love to connect and discuss how we can work together to support your team’s wellbeing needs.

Moore Insight announces charity partner of the year

MOORE Insight, a growing SME in Sheffield, commits to supporting young people across the region. With its successful recruitment drive to employ Sheffield’s brightest graduates through the RISE scheme, the company is expanding its reach to support more young people in other ways.

This month, the team announced their partnership with Sheffield-based Endeavour Charity (No. 275061). They aim to empower young people to work towards a positive future by providing personal development opportunities, including residentials and events to help youngsters build confidence.

In selecting Endeavour as their partner of the year, MOORE Insight has committed to fundraising, offering volunteers, and providing business support.

Kate Hill, head of business development and marketing at MOORE Insight, said: “When we were introduced to the team at Endeavour, we saw a hard-working charity doing great things within the community.

“Their mission aligns strongly with our own supporting young people. As a learning and development focused organisation, we know how important it is for young people to get support to reach their potential.

“We’ve worked with so many young people over our 30-year history and this year, we wanted to give back to young people even more within our local communities by encouraging more businesses to get involved in supporting the charity.”

Duncan Pearse, CEO of Endeavour, said: “We hugely appreciate the effort that MOORE Insight have put into this partnership. We know how much young people across the region need our support and we are so pleased with their generous commitment to support us.”

 

Be joyful as Christmas is here!

This Christmas is going to be more joyful than last year, so let’s celebrate and be grateful. Grateful for being here, grateful for what we have and that we got out the other side.

Many charities are getting back to normal now, planning events, getting out and about into communities, mopping up where needed because of the COVID-19 backlogs created. The NHS waiting lists are still long and they are still playing catch up to get around to everyone.

The longest lists are those for mental health provision and this care and understanding is falling more and more on the shoulders of community organisations, charities and voluntary services.

I would like to extend a huge-big thank you to these organisations who are doing what they do to support the people that the NHS just can’t get to currently.

There is funding around to support mental health projects, isolated communities and to support better community communication to ensure that no-one gets missed out, especially at Christmas. Please consider collaborating with other not for profits and charities when applying for grant funding in 2022, so that you all get to deliver what you are best at into the communities that you are passionate about.

Merry Christmas from Let’s Save and we wish you amazing things for 2022!

 

Big-hearted Mowgli diners raise a stunning £20,000 for Bluebell Wood

Generous Sheffield diners are raising lots of dough for Bluebell Wood Children’s Hospice after donating a stunning £20,000 through a charity partnership with Mowgli Street Food.

The popular Ecclesall Road Indian street food restaurant has been giving its customers the option to leave a donation to the charity on their bill – something that’s proved a huge success.

The optional extra on diners’ bills has raised an average of £1,000 each month since the partnership began in 2019.

A spokesperson for Mowgli, which has 13 restaurants throughout the UK, said: “Our central mission is to enrich lives in the cities in which we operate so we’re absolutely delighted to be able to support local children and families through Bluebell Wood Children’s Hospice.

“We take great pride in giving back to the communities we belong to and we’re incredibly grateful to our generous customers who’ve really embraced this ethos and helped make a real difference.”

Bluebell Wood Children’s Hospice needs to raise over £5m each year to be there for children and families through the toughest times they’ll ever face. The support of community-spirited businesses like Mowgli is an incredibly important part of this, and the charity are always keen to hear from firms who’d like to get involved.

Any business, individual or group in the Sheffield area who are interested in supporting Bluebell Wood can contact Shannon by emailing shannon.gossage@bluebellwood.org or calling 07376 474325.
