The Felixstowe based funeral director will be partnering with the hospice for the next 12 months on several fundraising events, starting as headline sponsor of the 15th annual St Elizabeth Hospice Christmas Day Dip.
Funeral director, David Button will join over 400 fundraisers and brave the wintry weather on Christmas morning and run into the sea, raising much-needed funds for the hospice.
Throughout 2019 the collaboration will see the independent funeral directors support the high-profile Ipswich Midnight Walk, as route sponsor, and next summer’s Suffolk Remembers event which takes place in Felixstowe’s seafront gardens.
The funeral directors will also become one of St Elizabeth Hospice’s 30th anniversary partners, pledging to raise a minimum of £3,000 by the end of next year, through a variety of initiatives and challenges.
David Button said: “We are a local company with local values and are an integral part of the community. As such, we are thrilled to partner with St Elizabeth Hospice, supporting the amazing work they do in our community.”
Sarah Archer, St Elizabeth Hospice corporate and major gifts manager, said: “We are delighted to have the support of David Button Independent Funeral Directors for 2019. Working with local organisations is vital for the hospice, and we are very grateful for the enthusiasm with which David Button has approached this partnership.”
