OUR FUNDRAISING FOR THE HOSPITAL OF ST. FRANCIS
We received this lovely note from Amy which we wanted to share with you...
"Thank you to Emma James Physiotherapy clinic for helping me reach a total of over £2000 for The Hospice of St Francis in Berkhamsted.
My friend Emma Young has secondary breast cancer which is incurable. She is an amazing single mum of 3. She has inspired me to raise money for the hospice, where they support her and her children.
The Hospice rely on voluntary donations from our local community to raise 80% of the £4.8 million they need annually to fund their free care.
I am taking part in the Biggest Loser Challenge where I have to loose weight and raise money. I am currently in week 9 out of 12 and have lost 34 pounds since I began.
I set up an auction on Facebook to optimise my fundraising (a bit like eBay)! Over 700 people were part of it. I asked lots of local businesses to donate and with a lot of them saying no, Emma James agreed to donate. Without businesses like Emma James I wouldn't of been able to raise this amount of money. I am extremely thankful and I'm sure the hospice will be too.
Thank you Emma James!"

Press release from Lloyds TSB;
RENOVATION TO LOCAL PHYSIOTHERAPY CENTRE CREATES NEW JOBS
Emma James Physio in Hemel Hempstead has re-opened after a renovation which has created three new jobs. The project was supported by Lloyds TSB Commercial Banking.
To celebrate the tenth anniversary of the business, which offers chartered physiotherapy, massage and Pilates, owner Emma James decided to refurbish the practice. Treatment rooms were increased from four to six and the gym was expanded to double the original size.
The outside of the building was completely uplifted and the garage was attached to the property, giving a much larger reception and waiting area. The clinic has strong links to the community and sponsors a number of local sport clubs including the Boxmoor Cricket Club and Berkhamsted Raiders Community Football.
Emma was the winner of the Dacorum Business Award for Small Business of the Year and Business Woman of the Year in 2006. Since then the clinic has expanded and the renovation has driven new business to the firm, increasing staff numbers from seven to ten. It has contracts with leading corporate organisations in London and the surrounding areas.
Emma James said: “It is important to me that my business continues to grow and a renovation to celebrate our tenth year anniversary was a perfect choice. The Funding for Lending scheme has given me a one per cent discount on the life of the loan and allows me to reinvest this saving into my business.
“Lloyds TSB Commercial Banking has not only helped me to renovate my firm but also support my working capital. Having a relationship manager who can answer my queries and be a first point of contact has been very useful, especially the busier I get.”
Emma plans to continue the expansion of the firm and has plans to involve more satellite clinics in established businesses. She has recently expanded the firm into Bourne Leisure Centre.
Peter Upton, relationship manager at Lloyds TSB Commercial Banking, said: “The business has significantly grown since it first opened in 2004 and it is great to see it continue to thrive with the support of Lloyds TSB Commercial Banking. Emma has done a great job renovating the premises and the new jobs will help the local economy.
“At Lloyds TSB Commercial Banking we offer a one per cent discount on loans through the Funding for Lending scheme. This is for the life of the loan and it helps SMEs to save and invest. Emma has utilised this option and now has a platform on which to build for future growth.”
