Fundraising for businesses
Charity of the year
If you work for a business or company we would love the opportunity to visit and ask the management and workers to adopt HCCN as their charity of the year.
Give as you earn
Another idea for those in PAYE employment is to donate via Payroll Giving. In this scheme, your employer will deduct an amount you specify direct from your gross income (before tax is deducted) making the donation tax efficient for you, the donor, as you will pay less income tax. Ask your employer for more information. https://www.gov.uk/payroll-giving
With our bigger events we sometimes need financial support and we approach companies to ask for sponsorship. It is always nice for both parties to form a social / business relationship and we will always offer publicity opportunities when marketing the event.
There are several local businesses who have helped us greatly over the past few years who we would like to thank:
Ryan Jarvis has been a professional photographer since 2009 & is well known & respected in the area. He normally photographs weddings regularly attends our meetings and conferences to take photos of what we are up to, which we are very grateful for!
First Take Films kindly put together the video on our Patient Perspective page to allow us to bring to life patient experiences – we are very grateful to Steve for taking the time out of his busy schedule to work with us!
Aseptika are a local award winning healthcare technology company, who develop integrated health and wellness solutions for individuals or groups of patients with long-term health conditions. This empowers them to self-care and self-monitor their health parameters and to share this data with their healthcare providers if they so wish. They have worked with us on the BuddyBand Scheme in developing some technology to assist cancer patients in exercising during & after cancer treatment.
Forefront Fitness have been instrumental in getting the BuddyBand Scheme project up and running. Marion Foreman and her husband Steve, are both passionate about fitness and have a desire to want to help others to get fit and healthy. Marion became a Personal Trainer several years ago and after Steve was diagnosed with a melanoma, Marion trained in Cancer Rehabilitation. They used Steve’s critical illness cover following his diagnosis to set up 2 gyms.
