Clinical Professionals to Support The Silver Line as their 2015 Corporate Charity
The Clinical Professionals Group is delighted to announce that it has selected The Silver Line as its corporate charity for 2015.
Clinical Professionals’ feels that any charity selected as a corporate partner must have the full support of the employees.
Clinical Professionals CEO Yvette Cleland presented the work of The Silver Line as a contender for our 2015 charity at our Xmas event and the response from all staff was overwhelming in support of raising funds for The Silver Line.
The Silver Line is a free, confidential helpline for older people in the UK. The charity are open 24 hours a day, every day of the year, and offer older people information, friendship and advice.
Silver Line help older people by addressing issues of loneliness, a widespread issue with more than half of all 75 year olds in the UK living alone, and one in ten suffering from “intense” loneliness.
In addition the majority of employees at Clinical Professionals have volunteered to be involved directly with The Silver Lines service by offering their personal time to become a “friend” of The Silver Line who offer a befriending service to older people. Clinical Professionals’ employees will also be taking part in a number of fundraising events throughout the year to raise much needed funding for the charity.
Clinical Professionals will be conducting their first fundraising event for the charity shortly.
