New Business Supporter joins Charity

Published on 06 November 2019 04:59 PM

Age UK Cheshire East, the locally based charity which provides a range of services for older people has welcomed on board a new Business Supporter following a recent breakfast event held in conjunction with the North Cheshire Chamber of Commerce.

Wear4Work Limited is a local family business based in Macclesfield, supplying personalised work and safety wear and promotional items to businesses of all sizes, schools, colleges, universities, hospitals and care homes, charities, hotels, spas, gyms and sports clubs.

The local Charity has in recent years worked hard to diversify its income stream, in response to the challenging economic climate, and now the Charity generates approximately 92% of its income through its shops, its services and also through income raising such as the Business Supporters Scheme and other fundraising schemes.  For a small contribution each month, local businesses get a wide range of benefits, safe in the knowledge that they are also helping the charity provide much needed support to the older people of Cheshire East.

Richard Woollam, from Wear4Work Limited commented  “As a Macclesfield company we are delighted to support this fantastic independent charity and its mission to improve the quality of life for all older people within our very own community.

It is an organisation that impacts locally, but has limited financial resources and in my view any charity that supports people living with dementia and memory problems and inspires projects such as “Men In Sheds” is a winner and needs all our support.”

The Charity’s Chief Executive, Damon Taylor, responded “We welcome on Richard and his colleagues from Wear4Work Limited on board, and look forward to a positive ongoing relationship with this local business.  All the money we raise through initiatives such as this stays local, supporting some of the more vulnerable older members of our communities in Cheshire East. Just like the business sector, we have had to evolve how we pay for our services, and having the support of colleagues in the local business community will help to ensure that we can continue to deliver our vital services to our local older people.”
