Sponsor Showcase: Verve Portraits
Putting a fundraiser together is no mean feat, but couple that with trying to source support from local businesses and it can sometimes seem like a daunting task. Committees will over time, often build up a ‘go to’ group of supporters in their local community who regularly and generously supply products or services for fundraisers. On the reverse side of this scenario you will also find businesses that are passionate about supporting their local community and who are ready and willing to donate their goods and services for your benefit as well. One such business is Verve Portraits. Verve have, for a long time, seen the value in supporting community fundraising events and have formed valuable partnerships with a wide range of organisations from charities right through to schools and clubs. We spoke with Marie from Verve Portraits about why they place value on this involvement.
