How your company can get involved with STEPS
There are many ways in which your company could support STEPS. We really would appreciate any help you could offer to assist us in providing our services to children and adults affected by clubfoot, hip dysplasia and other lower limb conditions.
We would be most grateful if you could please nominate STEPS to your workplace perhaps showing our short film about why we need your support, to see if they would consider supporting us as their 'Charity of the Year' or making a one-off donation.
STEPS does not currently receive any statutory donations, we rely solely on individual and company donations to fund our charity.
Many of our company donations are a result of staff nominations, therefore you and your colleagues can be vital to our success in this area. We know that staff fundraising opportunities are key to many charity partnerships. We can organise a selection of 'Charity Challenges' in which employees can join in as a team or individual. You can also encourage employees to create their own fundraising activity to raise money for STEPS.
For help and advice on how to get your company involved, or if you are a company wanting to offer corporate support, please contact Julie Charlton, STEPS Marketing and Community Fundraiser or email
who will be delighted to help.
Some companies run a “Matched Giving Scheme” which means that they will make a donation to STEPS equal to the amount of money that you have raised. As well as asking your friends, family and colleagues to sponsor you, there is certainly no harm in asking your company if they are prepared to match your fundraising efforts too. If they aren’t able to match your donation, they might at least make a contribution.
STEPS have teamed up with leading recyclers at the ‘Recycling Appeal’ so that every time you donate an inkjet cartridge, toner or old mobile phone, STEPS will earn valuable money. The Recycling Appeal provides free collections if you have more than ten items and Freepost envelopes if you have less.
To get more details and begin recycling, call the Recycling Appeal team on 01324 678900 or visit www.recyclingappeal.com quoting the reference VEN0195840.
Use your trash to help the environment and support STEPS. It won't cost you a penny.
This is the simplest way for employees to give a regular donation in support of STEPS. It is easy and tax-efficient and actually costs less while giving STEPS more. Gifts are taken directly out of earnings before tax is deducted therefore every pound donated comes to us in full. You need to ask your company for details.
Does your company have any equipment or products which it no longer requires? Or do you work for a company that produces goods? If so, why not give us a call to see if we can make good use of them?
Gift in Kind support is a wonderful way to support STEPS. Donations in the past have ranged from coffee and tea to raffle prizes and wine to use at our events.
