We hope you’ll pledge to join forces and do your bit to help. The idea is to get everyone together and build a real sense of local pride in your staff.
This is our region – let’s get that community spirit going and build something amazing for the North East.
Being part of something that will have a lasting effect on the region is a great way to boost staff morale, as well as helping with your overall CSR strategy.
SOME FUNDRAISING SUGGESTIONS TO GET YOU STARTED
There’s so many things your company could do to raise money. Here’s a few ideas to get you thinking:
- International bake off
Get everyone talking about ‘soggy bottoms’ – this challenges the most unimaginative in the kitchen to channel their inner celebrity chef and rock a creation specific to a country. Everyone pays a certain amount of money to taste the home-bakes once judging has taken place.
- Company sports day and football match
Get everyone to make up teams and charge an entrance fee for participants. A great way to encourage healthy competition and a real laugh. For those who aren’t sporty and shy away from physical activity, give them the chance to referee or cheer the teams on.
- Sponsored challenge
Organise a sponsored challenge for your more sporty employees – perhaps a 10k run, a half marathon or a bike ride? Or how about a sponsored silence or a swear box? For the braver among you, maybe a sponsored head shave or back wax? The possibilities are endless.
- Dress-down days
Staff members could pay a small fee to dress more casually for the day. On Friday’s, it’s a nice way to ease into the weekend and help your community at the same time. Add some fun by organising themed days – footy strips for match days, spooky gear for Halloween or jumpers at Christmas.
