Local NHS Charity thrilled to have been chosen as Chamber Charity of the Year

Member News

Back in July, Northamptonshire Chamber named Northamptonshire Health Charity as its Charity of the Year 2022/23. The local NHS charity supports Northampton General Hospital, Kettering General Hospital, and all the community hospitals and mental health services under Northamptonshire Healthcare Foundation Trust by funding projects and initiatives that enhance patient care and experience.

As Charity of the Year, they will receive complimentary Silver Chamber Partner membership to enable them to network with some of the county’s most influential companies as well as receive complimentary tickets to some of the Chamber’s networking events.

The Silver Chamber partner membership also means the charity’s logo will be featured on the Chamber’s website, company stationery, and in various other Chamber publications. They will also get guaranteed editorial into the Inbusiness magazine, meaning the charity can raise awareness about the important work they do to support the local NHS to so many more people.

Northamptonshire Chamber Chief executive Louise Wall said, “We feel it is important to support county charities and to highlight the contribution they make to our community. We look forward to working with Northamptonshire Health Charity and helping them to raise their profile and forge new connections with the business community.”

Alison McCulloch, Head of Fundraising at Northamptonshire Health Charity said, “We are delighted to have been chosen as the Chamber’s Charity of the Year, and thank you to all who voted for us. This is a fantastic opportunity for us to increase our contact with the private sector and engage with businesses across the county, who I am sure have all experienced the services of our local NHS Trusts, which work so hard to care for the people of Northamptonshire.

By increasing our networking presence with the help of the Chamber, it gives us the opportunity to work with the Business community and to highlight the big differences our donations make, funding the little
extras that put smiles on the faces of the patients and staff at the three NHS Trusts we support across Northamptonshire. Thank you!”

The charity team is very excited to begin working closely with everyone at the Chamber over the next year and making the most of this wonderful two-way partnership. In fact, fellow Chamber members Wilson Browne Solicitors have recently agreed to sponsor the upcoming Curry & Quiz Night
fundraiser for the Twinkling Stars appeal at Kettering General Hospital.
