LANYON BOWDLER Hereford put on a Big Tea for St Michael's

There are many things your company can do to help raise funds for St Michael’s Hospice. Here are just a few ideas:

Spare change – put a St Michael’s Hospice collecting tin in your reception/staff room for people to pop in their pennies.

In the office – cake bake, dress up/down days, office bingo, guess the baby photo, sponsored slim. All of these are simple to organise and are great for raising team spirit.

Set a team challenge – enter a team into a St Michael’s Hospice event, such as the Hereford Half Marathon, Paint Runner or the Venus Midnight Walk. See our full programme of events to find which event would best suit your staff.

Volunteer – ask for a team of volunteers to help at Hospice events throughout the year. The Fundraising team rely on volunteers to make all of our events a success and in return they provide a great opportunity to show the community that you care.

Get the bunting out – run a stall at the Hospice Easter Car Boot or Summer Fete. Tombolas and raffles are fun to organise, or you could sell merchandise or crafts.

Take out a bucket – the Fundraising team organises many collection days at supermarkets throughout the county and always need volunteers to help. They are great opportunities to promote your business alongside St Michael’s branding and engage with the local community.

Organise your own event – how about a staff talent show or open day/family fun day? Alternatively, quiz nights, bingo and race evening are always very popular.

Festive spirit – at Christmas ask staff to make donations to St Michael’s Hospice instead of giving each other Christmas cards. We can provide a poster and collecting tin to use, or you could make your own.

The money you raise for St Michael’s Hospice is greatly appreciated and will ensure our patients and their families are cared for and supported at the time they need it most for years to come.
