Run themed days in the office open accordion arrow

Stickman_Birthday_party_with_cakeThese have been 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, such as Christmas or your end-of-season bash. Worldwide Kids Company and Powder Byrne are two of the companies that have done this by holding a Christmas jumper day and a raffle at their end of season party. They also encouraged a team of keen bakers to create some culinary delights and held a good old fashioned bake sale - Fundraising materialsthese always go down well in the office!

We have a number of fundraising materials you can download or contact us for balloons, t-shirts and posters.

Set up team fundraising pages open accordion arrow

A brilliant way to collect funds is by setting up an online fundraising page such as Just Giving or Virgin Money Giving. Click here for an example from Snowbizz and here for Plexus Law.

Stickman_on_computerThe pages are a great way to fundraise, be it through a series of 'mini events', for one big team event or simply to circulate for donations within your company. By setting up a team or corporate page you can advertise your fundraising really easily to friends, fellow colleagues and clients.

If you need guidance in setting up a page, please contact us.
