Thank you for your support in helping local children

Colchester’s NSPCC Business Group represents local businesses who understand the need to support vital NSPCC services in our own community with all funds raised staying local to the town and county. Over 90% of funding for the NSPCC comes from fundraising activity, not from government funding which extenuates the need to raise more funds to enable these vital services to continue and help more local children.

The Business group’s flagship annual event, the Emerald Ball ran its tenth and final appearance back in 2018 having raised tens of thousands of pounds over the decade it ran.

Katie said: “The last ten years have been superb. I want to thank every one of my friends in the business community for caring enough to give their time and money. Monies raised has already helped the new NSPCC Schools Services and Parents Under Pressure programme in Essex, alongside training new volunteers and equipment for Childline. Thanks to those involved in helping make a difference and continuing to support such a great local cause. We look forward to the next decade supporting local NSPCC projects”

The Bear Diaries was a new, innovative social campaign, created by KAT Marketing and sponsored a Build a Bear where local businesses ’employed’ a cuddly toy intern and showed a picture diary on Twitter of his time spent at the company. The best work experience diary won £250 vouchers.

JMH Furniture Design won , with Culver Square Shopping Centre placing a very close second. 100 local businesses took part, raising over £2,000.
