Sponsor one of our events
Your staff could get involved in our events thoughout the year, such as our annual Pub Quiz or monthly coffee morning. By sponsoring an event you help us with the costs, for example, food and decorations, and in return get some great PR and local media coverage.
Display a collection tin
Could you display a collection tin in your office or shop? This would help us to collect much needed donations to continue our vital work in Wandsworth.
Donate a raffle prize or service
Could you donate a prize for one of our many fundraising raffles and competitions - perhaps a bottle of wine, box of chocolates or biscuits, bath goodies, gift vouchers, or free services?
Sponsor a project
We have a number of projects that need additional funding or materials. For example our Shopping service needs more funding to take on more clients and our Men's shed needs specific tools to renovate their new premises.
Send employees to volunteer
Could you send a team to help out at an event or activity? It's a great way for staff to bond by working together for a good cause. Your staff could help renovate our men's shed or assist at one of our events.
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!
