Fundraising at work

Fundraising at work is a great way to let loose with your work colleagues while raising vital funds for local children and their families. There are lots of ways to get involved – you could set up your own fundraising activities, nominate us as your Charity of the Year or join Team Acorns in a local event.

Bake your favourite cakes for a work bake off

Hold a bake sale

Indulge your sweet tooth and hold a ‘bake off’. Get people to donate for every slice, piece or plate of yummy goodness they take home – you could even get creative and appoint your own Paul Hollywood and Prue Leith to judge your amateur bakers!

Golf days

Are you a budding Tiger Woods or Rory McIlroy? Why not organise a golf day with your workmates, with an awards evening and auction to round off the day?

Dress-down (or up!) days

The perfect excuse for letting loose and donning some fancy outfits! Charge a fee to take part in a dress-down Friday, or pick a theme and jazz up the office – you could even have prizes for the best (or worst) dressed!


From World Cups to horse-racing to reality TV shows, sweepstakes are an easy way to get the entire office involved in your fundraising efforts.

Payroll giving

Did you know you can make regular donations to Acorns Children’s Hospice directly from your salary?  It’s a hassle-free way of supporting local life limited children and their families throughout the year.  It’s also tax-free – the donation is made after National Insurance, but before tax. This way, instead of the tax being sent to the government, it’s sent to Acorns.
