Team fundraising

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.

“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.”
