It’s so easy to get involved
Thank you for your interest in making a pledge, to make a difference!
There are many ways you can get involved to raise funds for the charity.
From events in the office such as bake sales, to taking on a personal challenge event like the Great North Run.
Or making us your official charity of the year, to taking on a team-building obstacle course event. The ideas are truly endless!

When you choose to take part in a fundraising event for the Family Holiday Association, you’ll receive our full support. We’d be delighted to do any or all of the following to help get your workforce on board:
- Tailor and manage branded fundraising events specifically for your employees
- Visit your workplace to explain the benefits of raising funds for our charity through engaging case studies, games and competitions
- Develop bespoke company and customer communications, including email newsletters and content for digital channels
- Secure places for your employees in national events such as the London Marathon
- Supply all the tools you need to get started – from posters and presentations to flyers and free gifts
Many companies recognise the contribution that fundraising can make to their business and incentive staff by match funding or contributing towards their fundraising goal.

Run themed days in the office open accordion arrow
These are great fun for all in the office and can get everybody involved and engaged. It's a great idea to take advantage of key dates already in the diary before the end of summer - such as your summer party or end-of-season bash! And a good old-fashioned bake sale always goes down well in the office!
We have a number of fundraising materials you can download, and we can also send these to you when you let us know that you'd like to get involved.
Team up with colleagues for challenges open accordion arrow
Teams can create their own fundraising activity based around the location of their office and what's nearby.
We can also help to arrange skydive days, obstacle course events and pub quizzes to name just a few - not only are
they a great way to raise funds, they are the perfect chance for a bit of team building!
We have a number of team friendly events taking place before the end of the summer featured on our event page.
Donate vital funds open accordion arrow
A financial donation is possibly one of the simplest ways that your office can get involved before the end of the summer. A direct donation will help families to experience a break from some of the toughest situations life can bring, and bring them moments to cherish for the future.
Tee off, cast off, jog on.. open accordion arrow
For each of the last few years we have organised our own events, giving you the perfect excuse to get involved and have some fun raising money.
Annual Regatta in June
Organised in association with Sunsail, our annual regatta is a great day of sailing on the Solent with a bit of healthy competition thrown in! Last year saw 13 teams take to the high seas; why not join them in 2018? A great opportunity for team building or to entertain your clients.
Golf Day in April
Join us at the exclusive Kingswood Club & Country Club in Surrey for a day of golf followed by a 3 course dinner and prize giving. Compete against your peers in the industry's first golf tournament of the season and raise money for the Family Holiday Association. Team and individual entries of all abilities welcome!
Marathon, half marathons, cycling and challenge events
Running one of the UK's iconic half or full marathons are on many people's bucket lists! We have places annually in the Virgin Money London Marathon, the Royal Parks Foundation Half Marathon and the Great North Run.
Or if distance isn't your team's forte, we have places in shorter 5k and 10k events with a twist! Such as the It's a Knockout style Gauntlet Games, the fun Color Vibe, or the adrenaline fuelled Spartan Race. For a full list of events you can take part in before the end of the summer, click here.

Also known as Give As You Earn or Workplace Giving, Payroll Giving is a simple way for employees to make regular, tax-free donations straight from their salary before tax is deducted. Easy to set up over a quick chat with your organisation’s HR department, it is a fantastic way to enhance employee fundraising. As ever, we are on hand if you need our support in explaining the benefits of Payroll Giving to your employees. We can even drop in to help engage your staff with case studies, games and competitions. To find out more about getting your teams involved in Payroll Giving before the end of the summer,
