A great afternoon followed where we set up an I &A stand by the food tills and we helped with bag packing and had a presence in their café. I want to thank the I&A team for taking the lead and setting up a great display area and also our Townfield service managers Pam & Orla (we also had great fun talking to M&S customers in and around the shop.) and Claire G and Mandy who did a sterling job waiting on tables in the M&S café. Julian (AGE UK Hillingdon’s C.E.O) joined us and met with the Store Manager and the lady championing our cause at M&S Maureen Payne. Some M&S staff wore our T-shirts and sashes for the event which really helped raise our profile.
Thanks to contact made through our Trustee Ian Edwards who invited Rt Hon Boris Johnson MP. Boris spent time with us and did a ‘walk about’ around the store talking to M&S staff and shoppers.M&S will continue to fundraise for us during the year with their own staff events and we will be supporting them by popping in and out. Money raised on Friday will go towards the target M&S want to achieve for us.
Fundraise at work
Companies can support us in many ways. At company level you will be raising your profile within the community and fulfilling your CSR responsibilities and at employee level you are getting actively involved with the community.
A corporate donation could secure the future of one of our services or activities.
As an employee, you can nominate us to be your company’s Charity of the Year. You can help us by holding small regular events such as cake sales, a company football match or raffle. Even a collecting tin on reception helps!
If you’re feeling ambitious, you could enter a company team into an organised sporting event such as Triathlon or Dragon Boat Race, or do a long distance cycle ride, anything at all!
We will support you all the way with fundraising materials, information and merchandise.
Thank you’s to current Corporate partners and logos.
