Can your business make a visible difference through sport?
There are numerous ways your organisation can help British Blind Sport. Below are just some examples:
Charity of the year or charity partnership
A partnership with BBS is an ideal way to motivate employees by working together towards a common goal as well as achieving your company’s Corporate Social Responsibility strategic aims. It can help boost morale, motivate staff and above all have some fun whilst making a difference to people’s lives at the same time!
Fundraising for British Blind Sport provides excellent team-building opportunities and offers a fantastic way for staff to get to know each other more and bond in a non-work environment, whilst fulfilling a collective sense of achievement
Donate gifts in kind
Your organisation will undoubtedly have product, supplies or services that British Blind Sport does not have. As a charity, we rely on support from a number of companies and individuals who kindly donate their products and services as a gift to the charity. Could you help us in any way?
There are various sponsorship opportunities available throughout the year. From high profile VI sporting competitions to gala dinners and drinks receptions; tailored packages can be devised to suit your company and maximise the impact of your sponsorship
Payroll Giving is an easy way to support British Blind Sport. Your staff decide to make a donation, direct from their salaries before they pay tax. This means that for every £5 donation, only £3.90 is taken from the individuals pay – the taxman pays the rest, so it’s a win-win!
Some “quick win” ideas like these are fun, easy fundraisers!
Sweepstake (Grand National, Sporting tournaments, Eurovision)
Dress down days (come to work in your sports gear as your sporting hero, or just wear casual clothes)
Sponsored events (runs, walks, cycles, climbs, you name it you can do it for BBS!)
Blind sports evenrts (simulated visual impairment can raise awareness as well as money)
Collection tins (you can have one in your office, have a swear box, or just for any loose change – it’ll soon add up!)
