Team fundraising

Santa Run 21

Team fundraising is a fantastic way for colleagues to bond, have fun and make a difference. We can provide spots in some of the most popular fundraising events in the country, and create our own unique challenges that help to shine a spotlight on loneliness and disconnection while encouraging teamwork, camaraderie and fun.

Advantages of your corporate team fundraising for East London Cares include:

  • A friendly staff member supporting the organisation of the event, providing fundraising tips and letting your staff know the difference they’re making to our community;
  • Bespoke, co-branded materials for fundraisers, including sign up forms, fundraising packs and certificates; 
  • East London Cares training t-shirts and badges for fundraisers;
  • Updates and stories about the difference your fundraising has made, and support to share your impact with your networks.

Below are some of the main events we’re recruiting corporate teams to take part in. Get in touch with us to arrange spots for your team! 

“The run itself was so much fun - we all stuck together as a team and encouraged each other as we got more tired towards the end! We ended the race wetter than most of us expected but with big smiles on our faces. It was a great team bonding activity, especially seeing as most of us hadn’t seen each other all summer.”
