There are many different ways you can fundraise for us to help improve the lives of older people in Bedfordshire. Here are a few ideas from our A-Z List which may be suitable for your workplace.
- Hold a 'dress down' day for staff asking for a small donation in return
- Organise a cake and bake sale - a lunchtime delight!
- Involve your local social club, workplace club or pub and hold a quiz night
- Arrange a clothes swap amongst staff asking for a small donation in return
£50 donated to us through any fundraising method could help a vunerable, older person in Bedfordshire benefit from a Hot Box to help them keep warm through the winter months.
Here are some comments from our vulnerable clients who have received Hot Boxes:
'I am absolutely chuffed to bits, I didn't have a dressing gown before you gave me one.'
'Thank you for my cold weather parcel, it was such a lovely surprise and arrived a week before my 78th Birthday. I shall have extra warmth when needed.'
'Thank you so much for the parcel you delivered, it was like Christmas. The flask is wonderful, I never thought of filling a flask full of warm tea and putting by my bed before. Once again thank you.'
