Erewash Sound are opening up their studios in Ilkeston to businesses who share their passion for supporting local charity Treetops Hospice Care.

On Thursday 23 March, the popular community radio station is hosting the Treetops Business Club and offering all those who attend an opportunity to win free radio show sponsorship for a month.

Treetops Hospice Care provides nursing care and emotional support for adults with life-limiting conditions such as cancer, motor neurone disease and multiple sclerosis. Hospice services include specialist nursing care in people’s homes, complementary therapy and Day Care.

Another way of supporting the charity

Jeff Martin, studio manager, explained:

“Being a member of the Treetops Bossiness Club gives Erewash Sound an opportunity to network with local business and gives the station another way of supporting the charity.

“We are delighted to be hosting the next networking event of the club at our studios in Ilkeston. Any business attending will be included in a draw to win a month’s free show sponsorship. This means a business’s short message with be played twice an hour during the sponsored show”.

Build stronger relationships with the business community

Kathryn Box is the brainchild of the Business Club which started just over a year ago and now has sixteen corporate members:

“The club was created to give businesses a way to support Treetops that gives them something in return too.

“We understand that lots of businesses want to support a local charity but sometimes find it difficult to find the time and resources to do so. By being a member of the club, they can support Treetops whilst also networking with other local businesses – they can mix business and charity!

“It’s also a great way for us to build stronger relationships with the business community. We have had some great support from members including fundraising events, free advertising and we were even chosen as the charity to receive fundraising from the Miss Genting Derby competition.”

Treetops Hospice Care services include Support and Information, a Day Care unit, Hospice at Home nurses and Therapeutic Services including counselling and complementary therapy.
