We’re a local charity with caring for local people at our heart. We want to build mutually beneficial partnerships with local businesses, big and small, so we can continue to provide our vital services for local people with cancer and other life-limiting illnesses, and their families.
Benefits to your company:
As well as the knowledge that you are making a difference in your local community, there are many other benefits of supporting the hospice, including:
- Employee engagement and motivation
- Positive PR, raising your company’s profile and enhancing your reputation
- Meeting your company’s Corporate Social Responsibility goals
- Generating business through increased profile and networking opportunities
Here are just some examples of how your company could support Bolton Hospice (we’re always happy to hear your ideas too!)
Charity of the Year
Nominate Bolton Hospice as your company’s charity of the year and we will support you in a wide range of activities throughout the year. We’ll help by suggesting activities to take part in or run yourself, providing merchandise and recognition for your employees and enabling your staff to visit the hospice to see the difference your company is making.

Events and Challenges
Attending our events can offer great networking and corporate entertaining opportunities. We have an annual Ladies Lunch, Gala Dinner and Golf Day, plus many other events throughout the year. Working towards a challenge together is a great way to help a team to bond – they could tackle on a triathlon, take on the UK’s longest zip line or even jump out of a plane together!
Gifts in Kind
We always need donations of raffle and auction prizes but did you know you can also support us by donating your services to us – anything from graphic design to building contractors.
Play as you Earn
This is an easy way for staff to play our weekly lottery, as we deduct their membership fee directly from their salary. They could win £1,000 every Friday for just £1!
"We joined the 'Play as you earn scheme' about two years ago now. We all look forward to the Friday draw and it builds team morale and creates a bit of a buzz in the office. Any new members of staff we employ now ask to join in the draw without being prompted. It was very easy to set up and is taken direct from the staff wages once per month. It is good to know that the money is being spent in the town."
