The support we receive from the local business community makes a huge difference to Francis House and we are keen to team up with organisations of any size.
There are many ways that companies can give back to support their local children’s hospice. Get your business involved by sponsoring an event, holding quiz nights and bake sales, volunteering or taking on a challenge.
Charity of the Year
Our fundraising team will work with you to generate exciting and motivating fundraising ideas that work for you and your employees. They will always be on hand to help with your fundraising efforts.
Choosing Francis House as their Charity of the Year, staff from Interlink Recruitment came up with some unusual fundraising ideas.
With offices in London and Salford, colleagues voted to support us by pledging to raise £5k.
Their fundraising efforts were kicked off by sponsoring Operations Director Adam Salkie to grow a moustache for two months. ‘Tash for Cash’ has raised more than £1k.
“Francis House has so many amazing rooms designed to care for children with life-limiting illnesses and give their parents and siblings a well needed break. It was great being able to see where all our fundraising goes.”Bethany Johnson, Interlink office manager at the Francis House open day
Brabners held an Apprentice style challenge to see which office could raise the most money in one day, ideas included breakfast deliveries and fancy dress.
Grant Thornton put local businesses head-to-head in their annual themed quiz nights and have raised thousands.
MSL held a static bike ride in their offices, covering the distance from Land’s End to John O’Groats and raised an impressive £750.
Join in our events
From balls and ladies lunches to sponsored walks and runs, we have plenty of events for you to attend over the year – all great for employee rewards.
Teams from local firms including Sharston based Interpart Ltd, creative media agency McCann Manchester and more than forty staff from Myerson Solicitors in Altrincham, took on our Cheshire Three Peaks challenge and enjoyed a great team building activity raising vital funds in the process.
We are constantly seeking corporate sponsors for our range of events. By sponsoring our Cheshire Three Peaks Challenge one year, Active Business helped to cover the costs ensuring as much money as possible was raised.
Employees can also volunteer for the hospice. Teams from Virgin Media used their volunteer hours to sort and prepare stock in the charity shop, and groups from RBS and United Utilities gave their time to help with our Knitted Easter Chick appeal
Thank you all for your valued support. If your organisation would like to work with us to help us support local families with children and young people with life-limiting conditions, please contact our fundraising manager Peter Forster on 0161 443 2200.
