As well as raising vital funds and awareness for our charity, supporting Weston Hospicecare in your place of work can bring many benefits to your business and staff.

How can you and your colleagues help?

Employee Fundraising

Fundraising with your colleagues in your place of work can take many forms including dress down days, bake sales, a bad tie day or raffle

Charity of the Year 

Many businesses chose a different charity each year to focus their fundraising efforts. If your employer does this, please nominate us

Gift in Kind 

As well as raising money, some businesses can donate goods or services to help us to reduce our expenditure or raise money. For example, we often need raffle or auction prizes for our fundraising events or items for event participant goody bags. If you feel you might be able to support us in this way, we would love to discuss this with you.

Events and Challenges 

We have a large portfolio of established events locally, including the annual Mendip Walk, Strictly Fun Dancing, Moonlight Beach Walk and the Men’s march. Many teams of walkers or runners are entered from local businesses and it is a fun way of spending time with your colleagues outside of work. For something more challenging, we have a variety of challenge events including the London Marathon, Skydiving, Cycle Challenges and even wing walking!

Corporate Events 

Many businesses choose to support our work by holding their own fundraising events such as a charity ball or golf day. If you’d like to support in this way, one of our dedicated fundraisers will be on hand to support you throughout with ideas, guidance and resources.

Sponsorship Opportunities

Many of our own events offer fantastic sponsorship opportunities for businesses to gain positive exposure linked to a well-regarded local charity. Our sponsorship pack, detailing the benefits on offer, is available on request.

Cause related marketing

Can your business donate a small percentage of products or services you sell to Weston Hospicecare? This is an excellent way of supporting the charity on an ongoing basis or over a particular period of time.

Payroll giving

Payroll giving allows you to make donations direct from your wages before tax is deducted, giving immediate tax relief. It also gives us a reliable, regular income. Does your employer offer this? If so, please consider choosing Weston Hospicecare to donate regularly to.

Pennies from Heaven 

Similar to Payroll giving, pennies from heaven allows employees to sign up to donate from their salary. Their Salary will be rounded down to the nearest £1 and the pennies (up to 99p) are donated to the charity chosen by the employer. If you have a large number of employees, this can add up to a substantial amount each month and compliment your charity partnership with us.

Volunteering & Team Opportunities 

There are a number of ways that your team can volunteer with us at Weston Hospicecare. This could be skills based volunteering, gardening, painting or at a fundraising event. For example, we always need help with registering event participants, marshalling our routes and selling merchandise! Let us know if you’d like to volunteer and we will let you know the current opportunities to get involved.

How your business can help:

  • Become a regular giver as part of the A MINUTE A MONTH campaign
  • Consider Weston Hospicecare for your organisation’s Charity of the Year
  • Sponsor an event
  • Connect your staff through team volunteering
  • Align your business values with the hospice cause
  • Encourage your staff and stakeholders to fundraise

    Reclaim Gift Aid

    Gift Aid It!Add 25% more to your donation at no cost to you. A Gift Aid declaration allows Weston Hospicecare to claim tax back on eligible donations. It means that for every £1 you donate to Weston Hospicecare we can claim back 25p, at no extra cost to you.

    By ticking the "Yes" box, I agree I would like Weston Hospicecare to reclaim the tax on all qualifying donations I have made, as well as any future donations, until I notify them otherwise. I understand that if I pay less Income Tax and/or Capital Gains Tax than the amount of Gift Aid claimed on all my donations in that tax year I may be asked to pay any difference. I understand that Weston Hospicecare will reclaim 25p of tax on every £1 that I give.

    What is Gift Aid?

    Gift Aid does not cost you a penny more, but can add an additional 25p to every £1 you donate. When Weston Hospicecare receives a donation from a UK taxpayer, we're entitled to claim an amount of tax (calculated at the basic rate of income tax in that year) paid on that donation. Once you have given your permission for us to do this on your behalf, there is no need for you to do anything else.

    All that is required is that you must be a taxpayer and that would have paid or will pay sufficient Income and/or Capital Gains Tax to cover all the Gift Aid claimed on all your donations in that tax year. Please note that it is your responsibility to pay any difference.

    The amount of tax we claim will be 25% of the total value of your donations in that tax year. Furthermore, if you are a higher taxpayer, you are also entitled to claim the difference between the basic rate which we will claim and the amount of tax you have actually paid. For further details on how you can do this, please contact your tax office. If your tax situation changes and your gifts will no longer be eligible for the Gift Aid scheme please contact us and we will amend your record accordingly.
