Basepoint Celebrates 4 years in Ipswich

Ipswich

Basepoint Ipswich is preparing to celebrate its 4th Birthday on Thursday 17th January by combining the celebrations with the launch of a new charity partnership with Cancer Campaign in Suffolk.

Centre Manager Michelle Wootton was at the centre in Ipswich to see it open its doors to the local business community in January 2009.  Michelle says, "It is great to celebrate this occasion with the licensees of our centre, some of whom have been here since the day we opened."

Each Basepoint centre fundraises for a local charity with match funding from Basepoint's parent company, The Act Foundation. This celebration will also mark the launch of Basepoint's charity partnership with Cancer Campaign in Suffolk, a charity which aims to improve access to high quality information and support services to cancer patients and their carers in Suffolk.

Michelle added, "We initially chose CCIS as our partnership charity as every member of the Basepoint team has been connected with their support in recent years.  Karen Hare, CEO of CCIS, will be joining us on the 17th January to explain how our fundraising will help with the delivery of these much needed services in Suffolk."
