Charity of the year partnership
Make it a year to remember and award Teesside Hospice as your charity of the year.
This great opportunity allows you to unite your staff behind a local, worthwhile cause that they can feel passionate about. We will be on hand to advise you and your staff how you can get involved in fundraising activities, events, challenges and volunteering.
Staff skills can be developed, brand awareness can be increased in addition to potential commercial opportunities.
Your opportunity to sponsor a flagship event or campaign in our area.
We offer a variety of sponsorship packages that can be tailored to suit your objectives whilst helping us to provide our care.
Benefits of sponsoring a Teesside Hospice event, appeal or campaign include:
raising awareness in your local area
reaching a specific target market
improving your brand perception
From the Colour Run to our Sunflower Memory Garden, Jolly Jumper Day to our Midnight Walk – our diverse events and campaigns mean there will be something to suit your organisation.
Employee volunteering and fundraising
Whether your staff are raising money or giving their time – they will play a vital role in helping us to provide our care.
One of the easiest ways your employees can kick start their fundraising is with a dress down day. Why not encourage a cake sale on the day and fun competitions to raise even more funds? Take your fundraising to the next level by hosting a charity ball or It’s a Knockout event – the ideas are endless (as is the fun!)
By allowing time for your employees to volunteer for us means they can apply their skills to a new area whilst also learning new ones. They can spend time in our shops, volunteer on an event or participate in a collection. We can work with you to identify which opportunities would be best for your company and employees.
Support our campaigns and events
Get involved in our campaigns or events – with a huge variety to choose from there will be something to suit your workplace.
Inspire your employees to take on a life changing adventure for Teesside Hospice. From running the Great North Run to trekking the Great Wall of China we have a whole host of exciting challenges in the UK and abroad to get in involved in. Our Fundraising Team will be on hand to help teams and individuals prepare for their challenges, providing support and advice to help them achieve their goals.
Donate money, goods or services
Find out about making a corporate donation, donating goods or giving gifts in kind.
By giving a corporate donation you could be making a huge difference in helping us deliver our care.
Here are a few examples of what your donation could pay for:
£10 will pay for a patient’s three course meal designed by our hospice dietician
£100 will heat the hospice and keep our patients warm for one day
£1,000 will cover our cleaning supplies for one month, ensuring our hospice is kept clean and infection free
£6,000 will fund a full day of care at Teesside Hospice – caring for 10 patients in our Inpatient Unit, 16 patients attending our Day Hospice, counselling for patients’ families and children, a 24-hour telephone advice line and outpatient clinics.
Donated goods and services
Donated goods or services are hugely appreciated. Items donated can be sold in our shops as stock, be prizes for raffles and auctions or be used at an event. Gifts in kind are also hugely helpful as it means we can save the potential expense.
A simple way to support us that can make a huge difference – and its tax free!
All you have to do is ask your employees to choose an amount they would like to donate each payday and we receive their kind donation automatically from their salary before tax is deducted. This means that if £10 a month is pledged, it will only cost £8 on basic rate tax, £6 on 40% tax or £5 on 50% tax.
Customer donations and the bag levy
Find out how your customers can donate at the till and how you can support us with plastic bag sales.
Having a collection tin at your tills or reception desk gives your customers the option to support us. Their small change can make a huge difference to us.
Donate your bag levy income
To reduce to number of plastic carrier bags used and to protect the environment the government introduced the bag levy scheme in October 2015. A 5p charge applies for each carrier bag used and applies to shops or chains with 250 or more full-time employees. Smaller shops can still support the scheme but are not required to.
Support Teesside Hospice and donate your bag levy charges to us! The income raised will help us keep our services running and support even more local people with cancer and other life limiting illnesses.
