Founders and organisers of the Stockport Business Awards, Clarke Nicklin, are once again on the hunt for a charity partner for the 2020 event. Entries are now open for charities to apply for the opportunity to partner up with the awards and benefit from all fundraising activities and proceeds from the evening. The chosen charity will get links and branding on the Stockport Business Awards website, PR coverage before and after the awards, promotion in the awards brochure, the opportunity to make a short speech on the night, and to form new relationships with local businesses in the area.

The Stockport Business Awards has been an iconic event within the business community of Stockport since 2012. Last Year’s chosen charity partner, Supportability, raised nearly £5000 on the evening. Becky Shorrock, Head of Fundraising at Supportability gave a compelling speech about the important work they do to improve the lives of those with complex disabilities in and around Stockport. Becky said “We’re delighted to announce that we raised £4,700 on the night! We’re absolutely overwhelmed by the support from the guests.”

Managing Partner, Andrew Baggott of Clarke Nicklin Chartered Accountants, said: “We are delighted to have supported so many amazing charities over the past eight years and see the benefits of the events fundraising. It’s a fantastic chance for charity organisations to raise their profile in Stockport and benefit from such a generous community”

Supportability Raise Just under £5K at the 2019 Stockport Business Awards

This year’s Stockport Business Awards, organised by Clarke Nicklin Chartered Accountants, partnered with Stockport Based charity Supportability to raise funds on the evening. Recently re branded from Stockport CP Society, Supportability’s ethos, core values and offerings remained the same – making life better for people with disabilities.

Since 1953, they have been supporting children, young people and adults with a wide range of physical and learning disabilities, with aim to enable those children, young people and adults live as fulfilled and independent life as possible.

The Stockport Business Community donated some fantastic prizes for this year’s charity raffle, including a star prize which was a 4 star holiday to Budapest donated by Paradise Isle Holidays resulting in the charity raising just over £4700 on the night.

Becky Shorrock, Head of Fundraising gave a compelling speech about Supportability and the important work they do to improve the lives of those with complex disabilities in and around Stockport. Becky said “We’re delighted to announce that we raised £4,700 on the night! We’re absolutely overwhelmed by the support from the guests.”
