Support Us Through Your Business

We are always delighted to hear from businesses who would like to support St Catherine’s Hospice. We want you and your customers to enjoy the experience of helping St Catherine’s, and will do everything we can to make it as fun and successful as possible.

We hope developing a relationship with us will also help boost your business. Did you know that most consumers think companies should support charities? Research from Forrester has found that when customers are faced with a choice between two firms offering products or services at the same price, 82% of people said their decision would be affected by whether a company engaged with charities and its local community.

Here are some of the ways we believe working with us could be of mutual benefit to us both!

See below for some ideas of how your business could get involved. Email fundraising@stcatherines.co.uk or call 01772 324540 to discuss anything further. Thank you!

Charity of the Year

Choosing St Catherine’s Hospice as your company’s Charity of the Year is a great way to promote corporate social responsibility and focus your staff on one objective in the name of a much-loved local charity.

Our fundraisers will be on hand to guide and support your team, offering information, ideas and advice at every step of the way.

Sponsor an Event

Boost your brand while showing your support by sponsoring a St Catherine’s Hospice event.

We organise a variety of different things throughout the year which attract thousands of people.

By sponsoring the event, or a certain element of it, you can show off your relationship with a much-loved local charity, and reach out to scores of new customers through collateral such as newsletters, website copy, leaflets, posters, banners, T-shirts and press releases.

Consider Match Funding

Why not reward the efforts of your employees by match funding whatever they raise through a donation from the company?

It’s guaranteed to give spur them on and give them extra motivation to succeed, plus it’s an extra way of meeting your corporate social responsibility targets whilst showing your support for an important local charity.

Give Your Skills

Volunteering your time or skills to St Catherine’s is another useful way your company can support St Catherine’s Hospice.

A fantastic example of this is our Wills Week each November, when local solicitors waive their usual will-writing fees and give their time for free in return for a donation to the hospice.

If you have some specialist skills you think we could make use of please get in touch!

Recycle

For every used printer ink cartridge donated to the Hospice for recycling, St Catherine’s receives a donation through the ReclaimIt scheme.

We also welcome donations of unwanted mobile phones which can be taken to our Donation Centre within the hospice grounds. All devices are cleansed of data and a certificate can be provided.

Your team could also host a Donation Day – where staff are invited to take their pre-loved goods into work which can then be sold in our shops or recycled.

Other items can also be dropped off at our Donation Centre in the hospice grounds or any of our hospice shops – click here to find your nearest one.
