Amanda Bloomfield from Gatehouse Charity (Avanti’s Nominated Charity for Bury St Edmunds Mixed)

We’re an independent charity that works with the vulnerable throughout East Anglia. Our work is effectively split into four projects areas.

  • the Home store
  • the Foodbank
  • the Dementia Hub
  • the Christmas project

Although we’ve separated our work into these main projects, they do on many occasions overlap and intertwine. Although it is not a religious organisation Gatehouse works with local churches, businesses, the local authorities and others to continue to serve the vulnerable and those in need at a time when charitable giving has declined and public sector support for its work is being reduced.

“Having had an awful experience with a formal networking group previously, I was slightly unsure about joining another network group.  However, from the first meeting with Avanti Networking a professional and well managed monthly group, I could see how useful networking would be.  With structured and defined objectives, but that relaxed feel, you can build relationships with other local companies.  Over my first year with Avanti it has given me a huge amount of business.  The business generated by the simple format has outweighed the investment 10 fold.  I can highly recommend Avanti Networking and this is proven by the introduction to two other businesses made by myself to the group.  The excellent experience with Avanti means that networking is now a major and successful part of my marketing plan.”   Darrell Smith – Sales Director – Archway Carpets
