How else can I get involved?

If you would like to support Overgate Hospice, but perhaps not through our Corporate Membership scheme, sponsorship or by choosing us as your Charity of the Year there are still plenty of ways in which you can get involved.  Take a look at the below for inspiration!

Events, Campaigns and Challenges

We have a host of ongoing and brand new events, campaigns and challenges each year that we would love for you to be a part of. Whether it is entering a team, providing sponsorship or simply promoting our activities within your business we are keen to receive your support and can provide assistance no matter how you choose to help. Visits our events page for more information on our current activities.

 

Your own Fundraising

We often find that our corporate supporters have such innovative fundraising ideas of their own and we are more than happy to lend our support in any way that we can. Simply let us know what you have in mind and we can provide promotional materials, collection tubs and much more, including moral support!

 

Volunteer Days

We are always keen to organise volunteer days with our corporate supporters. There are important tasks here at the Hospice and across our shops that are fantastic for team building and go a long way to highlight the importance of your support. Volunteer days also present a fantastic opportunity for mutual exposure in the press and on social media.

 

Match Funding

Many organisations offer match funding as part of their Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) programme. It is a convenient way to add to an employee’s donation. Matching employee giving is one of the best ways to increase employee engagement with your charity partnership.

 

Donate Days

A simple idea that reaps great rewards for the Hospice is a ‘Donate Day’. You designate a specific day on which everyone brings in their unwanted items to donate to our Charity. That’s it! The items are collected together, and we will call to collect them for resale in our Charity’s shops. We will help you to organise your Donate Day, with tips for promotion and collection.

 

Recycling

Last year over £75,000 was raised for the Hospice by recycling old clothes, stamps and mobile phones amongst other items. You could really help us by simply setting aside your used and unwanted items!

 

And much more!

Donating gifts in kind, spreading the word about our cause, hosting a collecting tub, payroll giving; the ways in which you could get involved really are endless. See the following pages for some fantastic, morale-boosting, in-office fundraising ideas.
