Event agency Chew has partnered with an eating disorder charity to raise awareness and funds for the cause. 

The Essex-based events company is joining forces with SEED (Support and Empathy for people with Eating Disorders) as an ongoing charity party. 

SEED exists to provide a network of care, support and advice for individuals personally affected by eating disorders as well as their carers and loved ones.

Chew has already pledged to raise money for SEED through a series of activities, including a skydive. Andy and Ellen from the Chew team have volunteered to take part in a 10,000-foot skydive this September. There’s an open call for volunteers to also take part and raise money for SEED. 

Chew director Matt Curran, said: “We here at Chew are proud to be working in partnership with SEED to ensure they can sustain the amazing and essential services they provide to every person that needs them.” 

Other upcoming fundraising events include a Golf Day and a Networking Evening later this year. If you would like to take part, sponsor the event or donate an auction prize, contact [email protected].

SEED CEO, Gemma Oaten said: “So many people need us and with no government funding, we rely solely on the kindness of our supporters and fundraisers to keep us doing the life-saving work we do. To have a corporate partner is a lifeline not just to us, but to all those who desperately need us.

“SEED Eating Disorder Support Services was co-founded 22 years ago by my amazing parents Marg Oaten MBE and Dennis Oaten, as they fought to save my life in the grips of an eating disorder. 

“Early intervention was sadly not implemented back then due to lack of understanding and awareness. This is why SEED was set up so that no family face the pain we did in a far too often broken system.”
