Business Supporters

There are many businesses which actively support their local community and charities.  As a well-established charity working in Norfolk and Suffolk it is likely that we support people close to your business.  Because our work needs to be delivered discretely you may not know too much about us but our website will hopefully explain how we help local children, families and adults of all ages.

If your company would like to support a local charity we would love to talk to you.  Contact our Marketing and Fundraising Manager Chris Elliott by phone (07825 130003) or email chris.elliott@benjaminfoundation.co.uk

 

 

 

Ways You Can Help Us

Raise Funds For Us

You may want to do your own fundraising events which could range from in office cake sales or dress down days to skydives and other adrenaline activities.  Maybe your company holds a dinner or quiz night that could raise money.  Alternatively you may want to take part in or sponsor one of the events we run.  These range from our summer family event 'The Butterfly Walk' to our 'Sleep Out' where we ask you to spend a night outside in November to gain an insight into the issue of homelessness.   

Volunteer

Whether it is an individual or a group of 20 people we can explore ways that your business can help us through voluntary work.  It may suit you to do this as a one day event or perhaps you could provide a regular amount of time.  Check out our Volunteering page linked at the top of this page or email volunteering@benjaminfoundation.co.uk 

Ways We Can Help You

Our aim will be to work in partnership with you and see how we can help you in return for your support.  We could help you by:
• Providing coverage on our website and social media platforms to recognise your support and grow awareness of your business
• Building team spirit - a day out of the office as a group doing voluntary work for a local charity could provide benefits back in the office
• Personal Development - we may be able to help individuals in your company achieve their personal development goals whilst supporting us. For example, could one of your staff develop their leadership skills by mentoring one of the young people we support?

Case study: Breakaway networking group

In 2016 we were chosen as the Charity of the Year by Breakaway, a brilliant networking group for Norfolk businesses.  Chaired by Jonathan Batchelor from Sologic, members of this group include The Library Restaurant, Lovewell Blake, Reef Recruitment, Clapham & Collinge, Applin Skinner and many more.

At the start of the year the group agreed to raise at least £3,000 for us and they were keen to know how this would benefit some of the young people we support.  We agreed that these funds would provide a summer break for a group of young carers we work with.  These young carers are missing out on their childhood as they are having to care for a parent or sibling.  Breakaway's support meant that we could pay for a 3 day, 2 night break on the Norfolks coast in August for 30 young carers - for some it was their only summer holiday.  

Breakaway also created opportunities for us to raise our profile such as gicving us a speaker slot at their October ' Big Breakfast' event.  Attended by over 80 local business people it was a great way to let more people know about our charity.  

The group meets every Thursday morning for a breakfast meeting at Norwich Cathedral Refectory.  If you would like to find out more about them their website visit breakaway-networking.co.uk
