Numerous ways businesses can lend their support

We work with businesses of all sizes, from sole-traders through to national companies, on a very individual business to help change lives.

Let us know your goals and we can can discuss how we can help you achieve them, such as organising some fun-fundraising to help with team building amongst colleagues or work to support your wider CSR strategy.

Ideas could include:

  • Choose us as your Charity of the Year. We can present to staff about our work, provide buckets, collections tins and promotional materials and give regular updates on what items your fundraising has helped to provide
  • Sponsor a Charity Link event or provide items in kind to help ensure our activities raise as much as possible. Opportunities include t-shirts and water bottles for our Leicestershire 3 Peaks Challenge and refreshments for our annual Sleepover
  • Organise your own fundraising event / activity or support one of ours - such as Wear a Funky Scarf Day, our annual dress up day, every June
  • Provide raffle / tombola prizes
  • Set up an on-going scheme which gives a donation for an item sold or service provided
  • If you don't currently have a Payroll Giving Scheme set up at work, offer this to your team. Read our information sheet on Payroll Giving here.  This is a great way for colleagues to give a regular donation to a charity of their choice which is simple and tax-efficient
  • Donate your services
  • Or you may simply like to give a one-off donation

However you may like to get involved, we'd love to hear from you.

We are always keen to say thank you to those who lend their support and regularly issue news stories about companies activities. We are delighted to take part in PR activities to highlight your support.
