40 for 40 is a new initiative from St Columba’s Hospice that is a fun way for businesses, companies and organisations of all sizes to support the Hospice in our 40th year.
What is the 40 for 40 club?
As part of our 40th anniversary we are embracing a special initiative involving companies in our local community. We are inviting 40 local businesses and organisations to join our 40 for 40 club, making a commitment to raise £1,000 by the end of 2017 – we hope that together, we will raise at least £40,000 to support our services.
Companies or organisations of all shapes and sizes are able to join our 40 for 40 club and the fundraising team at the Hospice will help you every step of the way. The initiative is an engaging way for your employees to help a local cause whilst having fun and boosting team spirits. There is no set way to raise the £1,000 target – whether you host an event, organise a sponsored walk, a dress up day, a sweepstake or hold several bake sales throughout the year – it’s entirely up to you how you achieve the £1,000 goal. Once the fundraising ball has started rolling you’ll be amazed at how quickly you can reach your goal.
How we will help you
Once you sign up to our 40 for 40 club, the Hospice team will provide you with a free fundraising pack full of ideas, helpful information, and practical tips to get you started. You will also have your own dedicated contact within the Hospice fundraising team to help with any queries that you might have, and should you need any materials such as balloons, t-shirts, collection buckets or raffle tickets, we can help with those too. We can arrange for one of our team to visit your workplace to show you why your support is needed and the difference you will be making.
We already have lots of organisations signed up and your company could help us reach our goal of getting 40 companies involved – hopefully you are now inspired to take this to your staff room and start inspiring others to help their local hospice!
