How you can get involved
Join our Business Alliance
This is a network of local businesses that collectively raise thousands of pounds for our Hospice whilst enjoying the exclusive benefits of our business community. Local businesses like Time FM are a part of our group and have organised some fantastic events in support of our work, including their 'Legends Night' with Sir Trevor Brooking and Steve Davis.
Take on the £50 Challenge!
Get your thinking caps on and come up with your own fundraising idea to help you turn £50 in to as much as possible for our cause.
Choose us as your Charity of the Year
Alongside your dedicated account manager, we will work with you to create a full calendar of fundraising and volunteering events designed to maximise engagement for customers, employees and stakeholders. Colleagues at M&S Romford have kindly chosen us as their charity of the year and have planned lots of events throughout the 12 months.
Sponsor an event
Our events are a fantastic opportunity to get your brand seen by potentially thousands of local people. We have a full calendar of events, each with a full prospectus of sponsorship opportunities ranging from just a few hundred pounds to exclusive sole sponsor partnerships. Matchroom Sport has kindly sponsored our golf days for several years as part of our patron Barry Hearn's ongoing support of our work.
Cause-related marketing partnerships work to create products or services supported by the Saint Francis Hospice brand. Teaming up with Saint Francis Hospice to market a new or existing product or service can lead to increased sales, positive PR coverage, increased existing customer loyalty and attract new customers. Balgores Leasing have raised over £13,000 by donating £5 every time a vehicle is leased, an offer they promote on their website.
Get your staff fundraising!
There are lots of different ways that staff can get involved in raising vital funds for our hospice. From pounding the pavement at the London Marathon to a 10,000ft Skydive, we can help organize bespoke fundraising events, as well as provide expert fundraising support and advice. Check out our events list here. You could always arrange your own event like Vinci Facilities, who raised over £3,000 at their 5K ramble!
Take part in Payroll Giving
Payroll giving - also known as give as you earn - is an easy way for people to donate to charity through their salary. It's a really flexible system that allows your staff to donate as much or as little as they wish to the charity of their choice. Donations are deducted from salaries before tax, making it a tax-efficient way to give. It's easy to set up and any administration costs are tax deductible. Donations can be counted as part of your Charity of the Year targets. You can sign up here.
Volunteer your time or skills to help our work
Volunteering is hugely important at Saint Francis with over 700 people giving up their time to help us each year. We have lots of different volunteering roles available to businesses at the hospice, from gardening days to service support and larger project work. Volunteering days for businesses are free of charge to all of our Business Alliance members and companies who have chosen us their charity of the year. See the difference two days made when Colas Rail volunteered their time and skills in our garden.
