September Raffle at Willow Wednesday – your help with prizes please!


Support our charity AND promote your business by supporting us with donated quality prizes for our September Raffle.  Your business will receive publicity on the day and on the NorthEastBiz website.

This year, our chosen charity is Carers Northumberland.

“Carers Northumberland are delighted to have been chosen to be supported by NorthEastBiz in 2015.   Carers Northumberland supports those who look after their loved ones, friends and family across Northumberland. Most people who become a carer do so because of the love and affection or feeling of duty it might be sudden or start with small things, but as time goes by your realise you are someone’s carer.   It is no exaggeration that three in five people will become unpaid carers at some point in their lives.  Carers Northumberland supports those carers to help them with their caring role.  In Northumberland there are at least 36,000 unpaid and with an aging population this number can only grow.

“The support of NorthEastBiz will help us through their fundraising for carers in the County, but it also means that Carers Northumberland will be able to talk to some well-regarded professionals and give the charitable sector and the private sector the opportunity to work together and to share experiences”.
– Sharon Spurling, CEO, Carers Northumberland.

To help us raise funds for this worthwhile cause Jacky Beesley of JackyBeesleyHR and Lee Richardson of Coast Technology have volunteered to organise the September Raffle at  Willow Wednesday on 23rd September.  We would really appreciate your support in the form of donated good quality raffle prizes!  If you can donate something, then please email to to advise the prize and discuss dropping off – or for us to collect – your donation.

It would be helpful if you could let us have your donated prizes as soon as possible and by Friday 28th August, latest – thank you!

If you would like to drop off your raffle donation at the 26th August Willow Wednesday event, then just hand them, with your business card, to one of the NorthEastBiz team on arrival.
