St Nicholas Hospices Case Study - Girls Night Out


How Echoleft is driving fundraising for team & group charitable events.

Girls Night Out is in its 10th year, and In 2017 more than 2,400 women signed up! They don their pyjamas, a pair of glowing bunny ears with a huge smile they walk 11.2 or six miles through Bury St Edmunds.

St Nicholas Hospice Care has to raise £11,000 a day to continue to offer emotional and physical support to more than 400 families dealing with long-term and life-threatening illnesses in West Suffolk and Thetford. To achieve this, they need the continued support of the community. Most of their income is raised through community fundraising by organising team and group events. Without this support the Hospice wouldn’t exist.

Echoleft has been a vital part of growing Girls Night Out from £190,000 in 2015 to a record-breaking £275,000 in 2017.
