Send employees to volunteer

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 - Calders & Grandidge 2016 and 2017
Age UK Boston & South Holland partnered with Calders & Grandidge as their chosen charity at the annual golf event. Here's what they did:
- Calders & Grandidge staff and customers held a golf event at Boston West Golf Club in 2016 and 2017. They raised £500 in 2016 and £1000 in 2017 and the event got coverage in the local newspaper and on social media.
- The money raised went towards to the cost of our Christmas lunches put on in Boston and Moulton for the elderly.
- Calders & Grandidge sent two volunteers to both events to help with the meals and they also enjoyed a lovely Christmas lunch. 40 meals were served in 2016 and about 90 in 2017. All events covered both in local newspapers and on social media.
