There are many ways your business can get involved in supporting St Wilfrid's Hospice.
You'll find more ideas for events and fundraisers you can hold within the workplace by downloading our 'How your business can help' booklet.
Join one of our hospice events; these offer a fantastic opportunity for you to support us whilst enjoying time with your colleagues or clients away from the office. Individual members of staff or even your whole team could get sponsored to take part.
Sponsoring one of our hospice events will provide you a fantastic PR and marketing opportunity whilst you demonstrate social responsibility within your community. There are currently two sponsorship opportunities available: Lights of Love 2015, and our Pancake Race, which will be held in February 2016.
Matched giving is a fantastic way to inspire your employees. The concept is simple: you match whatever they raise, boosting their morale by showing them that you support what they care about. Matched giving is a joint donation by staff and company: employees make an individual donation, either a percentage of their salary of a variable amount, and the company matches it, pound for pound. The amount you match is flexible and can be capped per person.
Our local business partners have used various incentives to help raise money for St Wilfrid's Hospice.
By donating a small amount each month from your pay cheque, you will not only help others, but will also be giving in a tax efficient way. Payroll giving allows employees to donate straight from their gross salary to our hospice. Your employees will be given the option to opt in and donate anything from £1 a month: it soon adds up!
If 100 of your employees pledge £10 per month , St Wilfrid's Hospice will receive £12,000 a year. This would sponsor a community nurse for three months.
Display a collection goblet by your till for customers, or in your office or staff room for employees. We have dedicated goblet collection volunteers who will collect and replace your goblet when it is full.
