“We hosted a Bondholder Breakfast back in November and met staff from Black Apricot .We started talking and here we are!
“This is a great opportunity for us to work with a local design agency with fresh ideas and lots of enthusiasm. They’ve come up with a brilliant new logo to go with our relaunch and we’re sure it will help to make this year’s walk a big success.”
The Starlight Strut takes place on Friday 19 May starting at 10pm - the same time that Treetops Hospice at Home nurses start their shifts supporting patients in their homes. Last year, the walk raised over £55,000 for the hospice.
Black Apricot has worked with Treetops to design a new Starlight Strut logo and marketing materials.
Sach Parmar, creative director, explained how Black Apricot has also benefitted from the partnership: “At Black Apricot, our roots have always been firmly in the local community and we regularly work with local schools and charities to give a little back.
“I have personal experience of the extraordinary work that the Treetops Hospice Care team undertake every day, so it has been a delight to be able to help on a practical level.”
Kathryn added: “We organise many different events throughout the year, based both here at the hospice in Risley and out in the Derbyshire and Nottinghamshire communities.
“Local businesses have a chance to really stand out at these events through a range of different sponsorship opportunities such as sponsoring a hole at our Charity Golf Day on 11 May or sponsoring a colour station at our huge family Colour Rush on 16 July.
“Sponsors will be able to raise their profile as well as give something back to a really worthwhile cause. We’d love to hear from anyone keen to find out more about what’s available.”
