Suffolk businesses back St. Elizabeth Hospice’s ‘Woolly Pully Week’

St Elizabeth Hospice was overwhelmed with the backing from the business community for their Christmas jumper event, ‘Woolly Pully Week’, which saw over 180 local businesses take part in the initiative, as well as schools, individuals and groups of friends taking the total number to over 300.

This year, the Canine Creche Group were the headline sponsor for the week-long event, with their team fully embracing the opportunity for festive photographs at all of their Suffolk branches.

Canine Creche Group Managing Director, and Founder, Candace Rose commented: “We were delighted to support St Elizabeth Hospice and agreed to be their headline sponsors for their Woolly Pully campaign as it really resonates with our brand.  Wearing a Christmas or festive jumper is a fun thing to do and it’s now become something you expect to see during December, either at work or school or even at a party at home.  All of our Creche’s and Nana’s supported this event with the staff and of course the dogs all proudly wearing festive jumpers!”

Felicity Rook, Head of Fundraising at the Hospice said “We were really grateful to the Canine Creche Group for their support this year along with our day sponsors, Attwells, Ensors and the St Elizabeth Care Agency.  Corporate sponsorship is vitally important to the work of hospice and is an area we have really developed over the last few years with clear proposals and delivery plans for our partners. The hospice is a community asset that is much loved and there are potentially great benefits for those companies that are seen to align themselves with us”.

Felicity continues, “While still in January, it seems wrong to be thinking about next Christmas, but we will shortly be holding our event evaluation and looking to how we can make Woolly Pully Week  2019 bigger and better for all involved.”
