Karen Seafield – nominated in 2 categories in the What’s On 4 Me 2011 Awards!

October 5, 2011

Karen Seafield runs KLR Management and KLR Psychic Agency and has been nominated in 2 categories – “Best Entertainment, Day Out or Attraction” and “Best Volunteering Group or Individual” !

Karen set up KLR Management in 2006 when she was a single parent and named the business after herself and her two sons!  It was the only PR agency in Sunderland at the time and 4 years later she set up KLR Psychic Agency which is the only Psychic Agency in the North of England.

Karen says “I have helped raise over £70,000 for various local and national charities. After my dad was diganosed with cancer in 2008 I began campaiging and fundraising for cancer charities. My brother died in Intensive care August 2010, and with various fundrasing activies I helped raise £433 for Sunderland ICCU.  After losing my brother, 5 months later my dad passed away and recently I have raised over £4,000 for cancer charities while going through my own grief and daily hospital visits to see my mam. I enjoy helping people who need it.  I am now a patron for Macmillian and review cancer books.”

KLR Psychic Agency is going from strength to strength and Karen plans to expand even further in the next two years – she is regularly suppling psychics to various regional events and is now supplying now on a National basis.  Well done Karen!!

Here’s what Karen’s biggest supporter – her son said about her:

“My mam has done lots of events for 5 years and has raised thousands of pounds for lots of charities and is still raising money! Even after she lost her dad and brother and looking after us and my nana in hospital  too.  She has done lots of events with her business and she has even done fashion shows, dance festivals, talent competitions and loads and loads of other stuff!”

Well done Karen on your nomination and good luck with your votes!  You’re an inspiration & really deserve your place in these Awards!

Can your business meet the “Star Business Challenge” in aid of Macmillan Cancer Support?

August 11, 2011

Happy 100th Birthday!!

Our South Yorkshire What’s On 4 Me region are proud to report that supporters of across South Yorkshire have been celebrating the charities 100th Birthday by arranging a series of events across the city.

Two major local fundraisers include Fancie and Nabarro have joined the challenge! Nabarro are one of the companies who signed up to the Star Business Challenge which aims to find 100 companies to raise at least £100,000 to support Macmillan. Forty-two firms have signed up so far raising more than £45,000 for Macmillan Cancer Support – with a further £48,000 pledged.

Any firms interested in signing up for the Business Challenge should call 01246 810 301 or email sloane@macmillan.org.uk

Sheffield-based law firm, Nabarro marked Macmillan’s milestone birthday by handing over a cheque of nearly £12,000!!  The company has raised over £20,000 in 2011 so far, Chris Chambers, a partner from the firm, explains, “Our main fundraising event was our annual charity ball and we also entered a large team to run for Macmillan in the Sheffield Half Marathon.
We will also support Macmillan events throughout the year such as the World’s Biggest Coffee Morning and Go Green for Halloween.”

Fancie joined in the celebrations by creating a giant cupcake mosaic which measured 6ft x 10.5ft.  The team arranged for cupcakes to be decorated by customers to create the mosaic!  For making a donation to Macmillan each person was shown how to decorate a cupcake and placed it on the Mosaic, they were also treated to a delicious mini cupcakes created especially for the  charity.

The Sheffield-based company which has three stores across the city has already raised over £2000 for Macmillan Cancer Support by selling a special cupcake in aid of Macmillan for 100 days.

But Macmillan is keen for more local businesses to get involved. Area Manger, Steve Loane said, “Figures show that four in ten people will now be affected by cancer which means the support of companies like Nabarro has never been more important to Macmillan.”
