Support us at work
There are lots of ways that you can choose to support Trinity Winchester at work, and support your local community.
Benefits to you:
Supporting a local charity can help to increase staff morale, build your brand, network among local businesses and help you meet your corporate social responsibility goals. By partnering with Trinity Winchester, you will be doing all of this while also helping homeless people and those who are vulnerably housed throughout our city.
Charity of the Year
By choosing Trinity Winchester you will be creating a focus for your charitable activities and gaining publicity for your company. Some of the ways that you can support us are:
- Donate a day’s profits. October 10th is World Homeless Day. Donate all the profits that you make on October the 9th or 10th to Trinity Winchester. As companies can claim tax on donations to UK charities this can be an efficient way of donating. Speak to your accountants to find out more about the claim.
- Take part in one of our fundraising events
- Organise a team building event
- Encourage payroll giving
- Matching employees sponsorship
Gifts in Kind
Donate items or your services to Trinity Winchester. If you don’t think we could benefit from your services directly, then you could include our literature with your mailshots, add a page about Trinity Winchester on your website or donate a ticket to a networking event.
Some interoffice (not so) friendly competition does wonders for team morale. Especially if you’re on the winning team. So take part in our office challenge, and the winners get bragging rights for the rest of the year!
Split into departmental teams, and raise as much money as you can for Trinity Winchester. Does the Technical team fancy a bit of time travel and dressing up in eighties clothes for the day, maybe you’ll find an unexpected Pop Star in your Project Management team’s lunchtime talent, or will the Finance Team take charge of the office iPod for the day and charge 50p for a song to be played, but £1 for it to be taken off?
Each department gets free reign on how they will raise more money than the other departments (as long as it’s safe and legal!). Keep it quiet for a stealth attack or maybe start your bragging early – it’s up to you!
This challenge is perfect for building office morale and the more ingenious ideas offers some great publicity opportunities.
Payroll giving is an easy and tax efficient way to support Trinity. Around 5 million people a year donate to charity in this way – it’s more tax efficient as deductions are made before tax. Visit HMRC for more information.
Secondment of Employees or Volunteer Days
Throughout the year, we have a number of volunteering projects that you and your colleagues can get involved with.
You could spend a day volunteering in our garden, helping to weed our flower beds, paint our memorial benches and plant new flowers.
If you can’t donate a whole day of time, then why not try out some of our micro-volunteering opportunities? We are always looking for people to collect donations from Sainsbury’s Badger Farm in the mornings, or helping out at local fetes during the weekend.
Hold a Clear Out at Home
Our service users regularly come to us looking for clothes, blankets and toiletries. Can you have a donation box in your office for people to have a clear out at home and donate these items? We are also regularly in need of new socks and pants for our service users.
