Create some in-office fundraising activities!

From bake sales, to dress down (or up!) days, raffles, prize draws, sweepstakes, Easter egg hunts or even mileage challenges, this is your chance to get creative and have fun!

Alongside your brilliant ideas, we can support you with providing fundraising materials like balloons, t-shirts, table cloths, pop-up banners and collection tins.

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.

Sponsorship!

The perfect excuse for letting loose and donning Sponsorship is a brilliant way of demonstrating your commitment to supporting a local cause, alongside promoting your business. We would be happy to open a conversation with you to find a suitable sponsorship opportunity to suit you and your business.

Gifts in kind

Could your business support us through donation of goods such as raffle or auction prizes or maybe something larger? We are always open to discussing gift in kind support to establish where we might benefit from a gift from your company. Please get in touch with us if you had a particular gift in mind!
