Ad-hoc and one-off fundraising

We appreciate that not every business has the capacity to support a charity long-term therefore we offer an extensive range of ad-hoc fundraising events and activities which you can get involved in as and when you are able.

Regardless of the size of your business, staff numbers or whether you are based in the office or working from home, there is always ways to fundraise at work. As they say, don’t some of the best gifts come in small packages?

Here are some examples of some fundraising activities that you could get involved with:

  • Staff dress down or dress up day, whether that’s comfy clothes, high fashion or fancy dress bring an element of fun back into the work day and ask your team to make a donation
  • Feeling physical? Why not challenge your team to get active and host a sit-up or squat competition in the home office, or create a steps challenge over a month and get sponsored!
  • Seasonal fundraisers are always a hit whether that’s collecting and donating Easter eggs, hosting an office beach party, selling creepy creations at Halloween or getting festive on Christmas Jumper Day
  • Turn your webpage or logo the signature Primrose Hospice yellow and green and help raise awareness of your local hospice
  • Wanting something more traditional? There’s always the opportunity to go back to basics and host a tasty bake sale, team sweepstake or virtual raffle depending on where your team are based!

Whatever you and your team would like to do to fundraise at work, we will be there to support you and provide you with items such as pop-up banners, balloons, collecting tins and branded t-shirts to aid in your fundraiser.

If you would be interested in a member of our team being present during the day, just let us know and we will see what we can do. Support from local businesses, whether large or small, is integral to secure the future for the hospice, so choose Primrose today for your fundraiser.

Sponsorship

Sponsoring an event or campaign is one of the easiest ways in which your business can support the Hospice. Regardless of your size of business, whether you are a sole trader or a large corporation, sponsorship packages are designed for all and is the perfect way for you to have a presence during our events and campaigns.

We understand that sponsorship capacity is not a ‘one size fits all’ situation and we want to work with you to develop a bespoke sponsorship plan that fits to your budget as a business and aligns with your brand and values.

If you would like to start a conversation about future sponsorship opportunities feel free to get in touch today and we can talk you through what we are looking for currently.

Cause Related Marketing

A brilliant way to elevate your companies corporate social responsibility contribution is by considering a cause-related marketing partnership with us.

Cause-related marketing is a mutually beneficial collaboration between a business and a charity, in short, by choosing to collaborate with us we can help to promote your support whilst receiving a regular, structured donation from your business.

A wonderful example of this is with our current partners, Rights Estate Agents, who are donating £25 to the hospice for each completed house sale that they make!

A partnership like this works really well for businesses who may not have the time or capacity to devote days to fundraising or volunteering, but who still want to be connected to our fantastic cause and make a real difference.

For more information or to explore a potential cause-related marketing partnership with the Hospice please reach out to Abi, our dedicated Corporate Fundraiser, who will be able to discuss this with you.
