Wake Up To Business is a networking group, coordinated by the Corporate Fundraising team at St. Margaret’s Hospice. Taking the form of a working breakfast from 7.30am - 9am, the group has been running as a valuable networking event for several years.

The aim of the group is to raise money for St. Margaret’s Hospice, whilst benefitting the businesses who attend. The meetings offer businesses the opportunity to:

  • Meet new contacts, potential suppliers or clients via informal networking
  • Hear our guest speaker and sponsor present on current business topics
  • Support St. Margaret’s Hospice – show you care

Businesses who sponsor the event get an opportunity to showcase their services during a 15 minute presentation. Typically around 30 business people attend, usually SME’s for a delegate fee of £15.

The breakfast includes hot bacon rolls, pastries, fresh fruit salad, tea, coffee and juice. 

The next Wake Up To Business event will be taking place on Wednesday 25 April 2018 at St. Margaret’s Hospice in Yeovil (7.30am to 9.00am).
