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

“I’d have really struggled without them”

“They’ve been ever so good to me and that’s why I wanted to fundraise and do something to help just like they’ve helped me.”

Philomena Sharpe

“The impact they had will never be forgotten”

“The community nurses were so helpful and they’re lovely people. They put my mind at rest and it’s such a comfort to know you’re not on your own.”

Jackie Day

“An angel sent into my life”

“I can’t thank Angie (patient and family support worker) enough for everything she’s done for us. She’s so reliable and professional – a wonderful person. She took away all these worries and was there for me in my time of need.”

Patricia Smith-Evans

“I’ve really enjoyed it”

“The FAB Programme has helped me to get fitter and my walking is better. Everyone is really nice at the hospice, they’re friendly and they’re good company. I’d recommend it to anyone who is in a similar situation to me.”
