Adopt us as your Company's Charity of the Year
Companies are often approached with requests for support from a range of charities and it is often difficult to know which one to choose. Due to this, some companies decide to adopt one local charity for a year and focus their efforts on supporting that charity. Sobell House Hospice Charity has an excellent reputation within the local community and is very much seen as providing vital local services.
Adopting a Charity of the Year is a great way to get all your staff working towards one objective, and the money you raise throughout the year can make a real difference.
We hope that your company will be interested in choosing us as your Charity of the Year. You will be allocated a dedicated fundraiser who will help and support your activities and your staff. We will suggest fundraising activities and events for you to get involved with and will build a good relationship with the fundraising representative/s in your company.
Throughout the year, Sobell House Hospice Charity organises various events which you can put your name to, helping us raise more money for the Hospice and generating publicity and positive brand awareness for your company.
By supporting one of our events you will be showing the local community of the benevolence of your company and gaining publicity both at the event, and beyond.
Some of the local companies who have sponsored us or helped with past events include:
- Big Oxford Computer Company (BOCC)
- SMY Electrical Ltd
- Malmaison Oxford
- Unipart Group of Companies
- Chris Lewis Fire & Security
- Polythene UK
- Oxford Gene Technology
- Dignity Funeral Services
- J & J Roofing & Building
- Spires Mobile Tyres
- The Midcounties Co–op
- Finders Keepers
We are always looking for new volunteers to join our team to help out on both short-term projects and ongoing work. Charity volunteering can be a lot of fun and is a great way to make new friends. It could also help your employees learn new skills and gain valuable work experience.
Volunteer opportunities within the Fundraising Office and at Fundraising Events include:
- Cash counting
- Data entry
- Assistance with car parking
- Selling entrance tickets at events
- Selling raffle tickets
We are extremely grateful to companies who decide to make a donation to the Charity. These donations not only form the foundation of our income and are critical to the work done here, but also clearly show your organisation’s commitment to our work and help us to continue to support so many people in the Oxfordshire area.
If you are making a donation on a personal, rather than business capacity, you can increase the value of your donation by 25% by opting to have your donation gift aided.
Why not set up a Standing Order from your business to us and make a regular monthly donation? Again, it doesn’t matter how small the amount – every contribution helps.
If you would like further details on how you, your company and your colleagues can get involved and have some fun, please contact Kelly Houghton, on 01865 857066 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
