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 99ers Business Club is different. Really different.
We bring like-minded organisations together to make valuable connections, share ideas and help each other. All for just 99p a day.
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 99 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:
- 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.
- It’s local
Forget Me Not supports children and families across West Yorkshire and North Manchester – and our business clubs are right here too.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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!
- 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!
- 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!
- It’s just 99p a day
What can you get for less than £1 these days? Not even a cup of your favourite coffee. But for just 99p a day you get all these benefits of membership of the 99ers Business Club.
"Sleigh & Story is very proud to have been one of the original businesses in Forget Me Not’s 99ers club. At just 99p a day, 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."

Get inspired at our 99er Business Club event featuring author and runner Rachel Cullen
Our first 99er Business Club event of 2018 promises to be just the invigorating boost you need after this long and icily cold winter!
Join us at the Crossley Gallery, Dean Clough Mills in Halifax for this fantastic opportunity for networking, sharing ideas and building relationships with like-minded businesses from across West Yorkshire and North Manchester.
Our guest speaker will be Rachel Ann Cullen, author of Running for my life: How I built a better me one step at a time. Rachel will be sharing her fascinating, funny and inspirational story of how she ran her way through depression and anxiety to a happier, healthier life.
Runner or not, we’re sure Rachel will leave you feeling fired up and ready to take on the world! She might even inspire you to dig those trainers out!
Rachel will also be signing copies of her book, available for £12.99.
There’ll be plenty of time too to make those valuable business connections – and we’ll help by introducing you to those businesses you want to network with.
So join us for a stimulating, lively and worthwhile get together. We promise it will put a real spring in your step!
