Zoe's Place

First Search Consultancy (Unitel Direct Ltd) are proud sponsors of Zoe's Place - Baby Hospice

Zoes PlaceOver the next 12 months – First Search Consultancy are committing to raise a minimum of £10,000 to help with the costs for the running of this amazing place – Zoës Place provides much needed care for babies and children up to the age of six – with very little help from the government they rely almost 100% on donation to keep the place going.

Zoë's Place is a home from home for babies who have life limiting or terminal illnesses, special and complex needs to varying degrees.

Zoë's Place can take up to six infants at any one time, there is also accommodation for the whole family if this are needed.

The directors, management and a few of our sales staff recently visited the hospice and had a tour around the building – At first we all anticipated that it would be a heart rendering experience and all braced ourselves to expect a few emotions – we arrived at the hospice which looked like a Victorian building from the 1800’s set around tranquil gardens – upon arrival we were greeted by a friendly bright warm atmosphere and a well lit reception.

First impressions of this place were that it was not the heart wrenching place that we anticipated is was going to be – but more of a tranquil, loving and warm place – and the staff and volunteers we could see working were talking to us like we had known them for years – exactly what this place was about – feeling part of their family and at ease.

After speaking with the staff we were then lead on a tour of the hospice – around the parents living quarters, the children’s bedrooms and around the chapel – at one point after visiting a specific room for when children have passed away and they are laid to rest in a specialised cot, a few of the staff had a lump in their throat – we then realised that this was the charity that we felt really needed our support and we then decided that this was going to be our chosen charity over the next 12 months.

We are going to arrange for Charity nights, sky dives, marathons, bungee jumps, auctions etc to raise much needed cash to pay for the nursing, equipment and support that Zoë's place needs in order to continue with its amazing work.

All of our staff across the board will be participating in events we organise and any customers or suppliers who would like to get involved are more than welcome to join us in the events, as well people can help us raise our pledged amount by clicking on the link to the Zoë's place website (http://www.zoesplace.org/) and placing a donation or, alternatively you can call the First Search Consultancy call centre and give a donation to any of our customer advisors (people doing this will be entered into a prize draw – details of which we will post later)

We would like to wish all who join us in participating the best of luck and we look forward to raising the much needed cash !!

Good Luck
