We are delighted that Nottingham-based accountancy firm Page Kirk has announced its nominated charity for 2021 as Emmanuel House. Page Kirk’s staff members are planning a series of fundraising events during the year to help raise funds for the vital services provided by Emmanuel House.
Not only will it help to raise funds and awareness, but it will also provide the team with opportunities to work together and keep up their team spirit at a time when many people are working from home.
During this lockdown, the Page Kirk team are all coming up with fantastic virtual fundraising ideas once a month on the designated ‘Emmanuel House charity day’. Thoughts so far include games, spin to win, bingo, a bake off judged purely on style and decorations (whilst working from home and unable to taste!) and a summer fundraiser to promote exercise. A new initiative called ‘Payday Payout’ on every pay day will invite team members to donate £2 – less than the price of a cup of coffee.
John Wallis, Managing Partner at Page Kirk said: “I’m extremely proud that the team has chosen Emmanuel House to be Page Kirk’s charity of the year. They do remarkable work to rebuild futures. We hope our support throughout 2021 will not only help towards raising money which will aid the charity, but also raise awareness. Page Kirk will aim to push ourselves, work as a team and pull together to do everything we can to support Emmanuel House. This worthy cause, which is close to many of our hearts, will inspire and motivate everyone at Page Kirk to meet our fundraising objectives.”
“We’re so pleased to be working with Page Kirk and to hear that Emmanuel House is its charity of the year for 2021. With no statutory funding for our core services, we rely on donations to continue providing much-needed support and services to those who are homeless, rough sleeping, in crisis or at risk of homelessness in Nottingham. Without such support, all Emmanuel House does would not be possible.”Denis Tully, CEO at Emmanuel House
The news comes at a time when the need has never been greater. We need the support of the local community as we continue to support some of Nottingham’s most vulnerable people through these challenging times.
