99er Business Club

Networking is the lifeblood of local businesses. It opens doors to new opportunities, new customers, new friends. It can also be a vital source of ideas, advice and support.

But all too often, it’s not. Instead it’s tedious, unexciting and unrewarding. Too many dull conference rooms, too many bleary-eyed breakfast meetings, too many fruitless speed-dating style goings-on.

Forget Me Not’s 99er Business Club is different. Really different.

We bring like-minded organisations together to make valuable connections, share ideas and help each other.

Our members have something else in common too – they’re making a tangible difference to the children with life-shortening conditions and their families that Forget Me Not supports.

“We’re very happy to be part of the 99er Business Club. It’s a fabulous networking idea, offering robust opportunities to meet new businesses as well as to keep in contact with like-minded customers who also support the hospice."
Amanda Crowther, Arrow Self-Drive

Will you join them?
Here are 9 reasons why you should:

  1. To make better connections

    To be successful, your business needs to connect with other businesses. But they need to be the right connections. With over 100 members (and growing), our business club is chocker-block with people you’ll want to meet. And who want to meet you.

  2. It’s local

    Forget Me Not supports children and families across West Yorkshire and North Manchester – and our business clubs are right here too.

  3. We’re not run of the mill

    Not your average networking group, our quarterly business club events feature inspiring and informative speakers in quirky and interesting venues.

  4. To fulfil your commitment to CSR

    We know you want to do the right thing for the right reasons. But, let’s be frank, we also know that CSR is great for PR, customer engagement and helps you win work. Becoming a 99er is an easy way to tick that box.

  5. To make a real difference to local children

    Put simply, as a 99er you’ll help us say yes to even more local children with life-shortening conditions and their families that desperately need our support. That’s huge. That’s something to be truly proud of. Something to shout about.

  6. To promote your business

    Talking of which, we’ll help you shout about your business – and in return, we hope you’ll shout about us too!

  7. To be part of the Forget Me Not family

    There’s more to us than meets the eye - and as a 99er you’re part of that. You’ll get priority access to our other events, challenges and activities. So whether you’re a lady that lunches or skydives, or a guy who eats, drinks and breathes sport, or not, there are plenty of ways to get involved!

  8. It’s easy to join

    It couldn’t be simpler - just print and complete this direct debit form, send back to us and you're in!

  9. It costs just £9.99 a month for the first year!

"Sleigh & Story is very proud to have been one of the original businesses in Forget Me Not’s 99er business club. It’s a small amount for such an amazing cause – which, God forbid, any of us could need one day. In return you’re invited to their fab networking meetings & it gives you lovely PR. Please support Forget Me Not - together we can make a massive difference to many young people's lives."
Peter Sleigh & Debbie Story, Sleigh & Story
