Kate Garside, a joint Director of Access Diagnostics with her Husband, Mike writes:

“We first came into contact with the East Coast Hospice appeal when we met their fundraiser at a Business Women’s Network event at Caistor Hall in Norwich, when she was talking about the work of the charity.

We had been looking for a charity to support as a business, and being a medical supply store with two doctors as Founders and Directors, this seemed an excellent fit for us, and was a cause we believed strongly in. In our careers in the NHS and as GPs, we were very aware of the need for hospices, and for them to be local to the communities that they serve.

Since then we have been supporting the charity in the following ways:

  • We have made the East Coast Hospice appeal our charity of the year for 2018
  • Recycling our used inkjet printer cartridges to help raise funds for the East Coast Hospice
  • Donating raffles prizes of Sonic Toothbrushes for a fund raising event
  • Sharing social media posts, advising on website speed & development
  • Introducing the charity to other networking opportunities and other local businesses

In 2018 we plan to support the charity in the following additional ways:

  • Sell an “East Coast Hospice stethoscope” through our medical supplies website Valuemed and through our Amazon Shop where all the profits from the sale will http://www.valuemed.co.ukgo to the East Coast Hospice appeal fund.
  • Offer all our employees the opportunity to get involved with fundraising and volunteering opportunities
