Fundraise at work

We help local people face incurable illness and bereavement, supporting them and their families, friends and carers. To do so we rely heavily on the help and generosity of local businesses, both big and small.

Our dedicated fundraising team is always looking for new corporate partners in north Essex who are interested in the vital care and support we provide to members of our community, and who are keen to get involved and build a relationship with us. 

As well as helping us, getting involved can be good for your company too:

  • It’s been proven that association of working with a high profile and regarded charity can increase sales due to enhanced customer loyalty. 
  • Demonstrating your organisation is committed to supporting the local community can help build your brand and reputation. 
  • Let’s add a bit of fun into the week, fundraising can improve employee motivation amongst colleagues and help develop team working skills!
  • We have a number of opportunities to promote and advertise your company.

Hiscox in Colchester is one of our long term corporate supporters. In 2020 the team raised £10,000 through various activities, with some taking part in the Virtual Midday Walk and others tackling the Nuclear Race; plus some virtual fundraising during lockdown. In 2021, one of their colleagues is taking on the iconic London Marathon in aid of the hospice. We are incredibly grateful for their support and the £10,000 they have raised could provide care and support to 200 families in crisis in the depth of night with a home visit from a SinglePoint nurse.

The ways you can help us are only limited by what you can come up with, however some examples of how you can get involved include:
