Choose Sobell House as your Charity of the Year
Nominate Sobell House as your Charity of the Year and motivate and inspire your employees, customers and suppliers to raise as much money as they can for the Hospice and have fun in the process. We will work with you to create a bespoke calendar of engaging events, tailored to help meet your business goals and corporate social responsibility needs.
This is a great opportunity to unite your staff, customers and suppliers behind a worthwhile cause that they can identify with and feel passionate about – and have fun in the process. We will be on hand to advise how your staff can get involved in fundraising activities, volunteering time and skills, events, challenges and more.
Fundraise for Sobell House
There are lots of different ways your company can get involved and fundraise for Sobell House – either as a team or as an individual representative.
Please visit our find a challenge page to discover some local and further afield events which you could take part in and help raise vital funds.
Alternatively, you may prefer to set your own challenge. It could be walking 5km every day for a month, completing an ultramarathon, or cycling to work and back for 90 days – the options are endless!
If an active challenge isn’t your thing, why not plan a fundraiser instead? We’ve had employees brave the shave, organise a bake sale, host live events, and so much more.
