Fundraise at work

Local companies large and small support John Taylor Hospice. Fundraising at work helps team-building, creates links with your local community and helps give staff an added sense of purpose.

 

Many companies adopt a Charity of the Year, focussing 12 months of fundraising on supporting their cause. Check if your company chooses a charity each year – and if you’d like additional information from us to support a bid please let us know.

Signing up to payroll giving means your donation comes straight from your pay before Income Tax. This means that every donation you make goes further. You can give as little or as much as you like on a monthly basis and can change this arrangement at any time. You can find out if your employer offers payroll giving by asking your payroll department. By completing the Pre-tax payroll giving form you are helping make every moment matter. We will then pass your request on to your employer to set up your regular donation.

Many companies support their staff’s fundraising efforts by doubling any money raised through matched giving. Ask your employer if they offer this scheme – it’s a great way to increase your total.

Whether it’s achieving a lifetime ambition in a skydive or a running challenge, or you’d prefer to give your baking skills a workout, click to join one of our events.

Or you can organise your own fundraising event! From cake sales to car washes and sponsored silences to swear boxes – there are countless fun events to bring staff together and raise money for John Taylor Hospice.

Does your company have a corporate and social responsibility policy? If so, your team may be looking for volunteering opportunities.

We can help – teams from local companies have helped us with decorating, gardening, bucket collecting and at events. Or let us know how you would like to support us.

What our patients think

“The care was second to none”

“At such a heartbreaking and difficult time, the nurses and care assistants knew exactly what to do and to say – we’d have been lost without them. The care they provided for my beautiful wife was second to none and I’ll be forever grateful.”

Roger Perks

“Nothing is too much trouble”

“I can’t thank hospice teams enough. From fitting grab rails in my house and ordering a reclining bed, reviewing of all my medication, providing me with new medical equipment and even helping to organise domestic help for us at home – they’ve covered everything but are always willing to do even more.”

Jackie Bannister

“I don’t know where I’d be without them”

“The support I get is truly is invaluable and I honestly don’t know where I’d be without them. I’m able to talk openly about my illness and ask for advice and support if I need it. I’ve made some incredible friends and the hospice is a very special place full of laughter and kindness. “
