I often talk about the benefits of invoice finance and alternative funding for small and medium-sized enterprises. While services such as factoring and forward finance can help business owners with cashflow, it’s also great to be able to help not-for-profit organisations.
Over the past year, the Liverpool team at Bibby Financial Services have worked tirelessly to raise funding for Woodlands Hospice in Aintree, thanks to the generous support of their local business network.
The team raised £8,000 for the Woodlands Hospice Charitable Trust, which was set up in order to raise the necessary funds to build and run the Woodlands Hospice. The trust was set up by local GPs, nurses and hospital staff that felt there was a need for the care and support of those with life-threatening illnesses in North Liverpool.
Holding a series of sporting events in 2014 – including golf and race days – we raised money to support the hospice and its increasing costs. Woodlands are required to raise £2,000 a day to ensure that all services and facilities remain free of charge for patients and their families.
As one of the UK’s leading invoice finance specialists, it’s really great to be able to give back to the community and with 2015 quickly approaching, I look forward to letting you know of our fundraising efforts next year.
