What are the benefits of partnering with Age UK West Sussex?
A partnership with us could be beneficial for your business by helping you meet your corporate social responsibility objectives. It's a great way to motivate employees, gain insight into the over-50s market, get some great PR and help Age UK West Sussex to support vulnerable people in the local community. Contact Tamsen or John for more information.
How can we get involved?
There are a number of ways your organisation can partner with us
Ride Velo South
We are currently looking for local businesses to support our Velo South team. Join Olympic gold medallist Sally Gunnell, local world champion septaganarian triathlete Daphne Belt and the rest of the Age UK West Sussex team on our bikes as we ride 100 miles in one day across West Sussex. Alternatively you could sponsor our jerseys - all the benefits without any of the sweat!
Choose Age UK West Sussex as your Charity of the Year
Please consider choosing Age UK West Sussex as your business Charity of the Year. In return we would offer joint branding on our fundraising materials and our events, as well as positive PR and local media coverage.
Sponsor one of our events
Your staff could get involved in our events thoughout the year, such as our annual Bake-off contest and summer volunteer party. 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 West Sussex.
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?
If you would like to donate a piece of equipment, we would be very grateful.
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 to help vulnerable older people. Previous staff teams have served Christmas lunches, taken older people on days out, painted our day centres, and revamped our gardens.
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!
