Following a successful launch event at Days Inn Haverhill recently the Peel2Save fundraising card is now available to charities and good causes in Haverhill.
Several organisations attended the lunch time event to find out more about the no risk way for charities, schools, youth groups and other non-profit organisations to raise much needed funds.
Representatives from Haverhill Association of Voluntary Organisations (HAVO), St Nicholas Hospice Care, St Felix Roman Catholic Church, Sandcastle Play Group and Haverhill Hockey Club enjoyed coffee and cakes at Days Inn Haverhill whilst finding out more about the credit-card sized Peel2Save cards. The cards fit neatly into a purse or wallet and contain 64 individual peel off coupons with each coupon promoting an offer from a great local business. The card is sold for £10 by organisations and good causes and they keep £5 from every card sold.
A number of local businesses, who have supported Peel2Save with offers have also taken the opportunity to sell cards on behalf of their chosen charity. The Haver Arms, KAD Cars and Frankie & Benny’s will be selling cards on behalf of St Nicholas Hospice Care and Abbeycroft Leisure has agreed to support HAVO with the cards they sell.
Launched nationally in June the Peel2Save initiative in Haverhill is being run by local business women Jenni Donno from Social Media Success and Elaine Carr owner of thebestofhaverhill.
Jenni Donno comments, “The Peel2Save cards are available to any not for profit organisation to sell to raise funds for their cause. The charities and good causes don’t have to pay any monies upfront, there is no minimum order and they can return any unsold, undamaged cards. It really is a no risk way to fundraise. Most of the people we have spoken to so far can see the benefits of the Peel2Save card over traditional fundraising. When times are hard people are looking for value – Peel2Save gives them that and helps to raise money for good causes as well.”
The cards are designed to offer a win-win for local businesses, charities and good causes and local consumers.
Elaine Carr explains, “I love the concept of Peel2Save. Local businesses get the opportunity to promote their goods and services for free; local people benefit from those offers; good causes and charities benefit from the funds raised. We have had some great feedback on the cards already, young people really like them and anyone with a family will soon get their money back. My card paid for itself as soon as I used the first offer!”
The Peel2Save initiative is hoping to raise around £2.5 million for charities and good causes nationally over the next twelve months.
