Fundraising at work boosts team morale and raises your social responsibility profile in the local community and industries in which you operate.

Our work simply couldn't happen without the support of the generous teams in businesses and organisations across the country.

We've created some simple and fun ideas to get your colleagues involved in raising money.

As an employer would you match-fund monies raised.

Sponsored silence

An oldie but a goodie. Why not try to get the whole team involved too – or maybe even your boss.

Hold a dress down day

Ask your colleagues for a donation to take part.

Bake sale

If you can't bring yourselves to cut out the cake, charge people to eat it instead! Organise a few colleagues to bake their best showstoppers. Another easy way to bring in the dough.

Sporting Event

Sign up for one of our listed running, cycling or sport events:

Skip the snacks

Are you a sweet-toothed bunch? Why not ditch the doughnuts for the day? Donate what you would have spent to Thrombosis UK.

Get an exercise bike in the office

Hold a cycling or rowing relay – how quickly can you and your colleagues cycle from Lands End to John O'Groats? How fast can you row the Thames? Get your colleagues who don't want to get sweaty to sponsor you. Or draw lots, getting people to guess how long it will take.

Payroll Giving

Payroll Giving, also known as Give As You Earn, is a simple way to make regular, tax-free donations. It's a quick and easy way to donate to us.

How do I donate ?

Ask your Payroll Department whether your company offers the scheme. If they do, you need to decide how much you would like to give each time you are paid.

Every time you're paid, your Payroll Department deducts the agreed amount and sends it to us. There's nothing more for you to do.

Your donation will be even bigger at no further cost to you, as the Government adds the tax on as an extra donation, this means, if you agree to give £5, (if you are a basic rate tax payer) you only pay £4 - the taxman makes up the remaining £1.
