Could run a fundraising event
Your employees could run their own fundraiser to help raise vital funds for our work. They could do a cake sale, dress down day, a sponsored walk or run, or a raffle. There's so many things they could do - contact us for more ideas!
Corporate sponsor case study - Cory Environmental
Age UK Bexley partnered with Cory Environmental. Here's what we did:
- Cory Environmental provided us with funding for our Men in Sheds project, which targets isolated older men and gives them a place to go, use their skills, learn new ones and to socialise.
- This enabled us to have a shed designed and built using old shipping containers which was then located in Erith.
- Two years on and our men are in full swing, creating bird boxes, bug hotels, games, planters, the list goes on and on and more importantly creating experiences and friendships.
Thank you to Cory Environmental for providing us the means to build our shed!
