The Papworth Trust disability charity is marking its 100th anniversary by creating a “Centenary Club” for businesses in and around Ipswich.
The club, which was officially launched at the charity’s Ipswich Centre, in Foundation Street, by the Mayor of Ipswich, Roger Fern, offers businesses the chance to benefit from networking and other special events.
Money raised from the Centenary Club’s activities will support the charity’s work in Ipswich which includes offering a range of leisure and learning activities for disabled people including gardening, art and music.
Jo Revitt, corporate partnership fundraiser at Papworth Trust, which also has centres in Cambridge, Huntingdon, Sawston and and Basildon, said: “We were delighted to welcome Mayor Roger Fern and so many local businesses in Ipswich to the launch of our Centenary Club. We would like to thank them all for their fantastic support.”
David Martin, director of external affairs, added: “This is a great initiative to mark the charity’s 100th anniversary as well as creating a vibrant network for our generous corporate supporters.
