Birketts are proud to be supporting East Anglia's Children's Hospices (EACH) as our firm wide chosen charity for 2021.
EACH offers care and support to hundreds of children and young people with life-threatening conditions in East Anglia, as well as their families. Its service includes short breaks, wellbeing activities, therapies, counselling and symptom management nursing.
Birketts is committed to raising the £35,100 annual salary of a Clinical Nurse Specialist through its fundraising efforts in 2021. EACH currently has 11 of these vital nurses working across the region, working closely with families to provide support for their children and to develop individual symptom management plans. However, as demand for their services increases, the need for support from corporate partners and individual donations grows.
Beyond fundraising, Birketts’ colleagues will also have regular opportunities to volunteer for EACH, whether at one of their charity shops or by maintaining the gardens at one of their three hospices. Every member of staff at Birketts can take a day’s paid leave to volunteer or attend a charity event as part of the firm’s Collective Social Responsibility (CSR).
