#Fundraising for Charity
Since the beginning of Billie Box in 2012, Jane Billing made it her mission to support UK based charity. The majority of the charities that Billie Box supports are mainly Cancer related. Cancer is close to Jane’s heart with family and friends being affected by this awful disease.
In June 2013 Billie Box raised around £685 for Cancer Campaign in Suffolk by way of a grand draw, with the support of many local businesses e.g. Adnams Southwold, Aspall Cyder Debenham, InvigR8 aqua massage to name but a few.
In May 2014 Billie Box held their first Charity Ball, named: Billie Box Ball, again with many supporters, both friends and local businesses, assisting in raising £2,300 for the Cancer campaign in Suffolk.
The Ball was a huge success and Jane hopes to make this a bi-annual event.
As Billie Box has an office at Basepoint Business Centre and Cancer campaign in Suffolk are their chosen charity, the ACT foundation (owner of Basepoint) match funded the money raised by Billie Box.
So in total Billie Box has raised £5,970 for the Cancer campaign in Suffolk.
Instead of sending out Christmas cards in 2013, we donated the cost of the cards to the St. Elizabeth Hospice.
Instead of sending out Christmas cards in 2014, Billie Box donated the cost of the cards to Clic Sargent.
