Corporate Partners

Cancer Help aims to work with companies to build a relationship rather than simply take donations. In this way the charity hopes to give something back. Support is not just about money. Companies can host clothes collections, give skills or services and donate items they no longer require. By working with a local charity companies can enhance their image with both staff and the general public.

Becoming a corporate partner can have a significant impact on a charity like ours. It allows you to make a difference to a community, by donating your time, skills or money. Positively impacting those adults, families and young people that use our services. By partnering with us it will enable us to raise the awareness of CancerHelp and raise the funds needed to continue caring for those in the community that need our support. Our dedicated Head of Fundraising, Laura Stephenson, would love to talk to you about any
of these ways to partner with us. If you have any questions or want to explore the possibility of your company making a difference but in a different way than the areas above then please give us a ring on 01772 793344 or email Laura on l.stephenson@cancerhelppreston.co.uk

We would love you to get involved if you can in any of the ways below:

Charity of the Year / Staff Fundraising – Encourage your team to pick a charity to support for a year, through cake sales, dress down days and other fundraising ideas. It builds your team as they work together and support a great cause.

Volunteering – Across our two centres we have the opportunity to provide your work force with the opportunity to donate their staff time, for example to helping paint, varnish or garden with us for a few hours, half a day or even a full day.

Sponsorship – Pledging financial support to one of our key flagship events by sponsoring the drinks, entertainment or marketing. Helping us to cover overheads whilst allowing you to promote your company & impact on your CSR policy.

Events – Join with us at one of our events this year whether you give your support in attending and taking part or in volunteering at an event. We would love to have you joining
us at our ball, buying a table for your valued employees and customers. Or donating your time to marshal one of our walking events.

Gifts in kind – Whether you donate one of your products, your services or your professional advice, we would love to connect with you at this level & amp; would welcome any gifts that you can give. This would raise awareness of your company and our charity while you are supporting us

The benefits of partnering:
