As a charity, we might have a constant focus on fundraising but there’s no doubt we rely on more than just money to keep us flying high.
Over the years, we have established many successful partnerships with generous businesses who donate gifts in kind. It might be car dealerships donating a vehicle as a raffle prize or travel companies providing holidays, flights or hotel breaks to be auctioned off at one of our high-profile events.
It might also be the donation of more basic equipment or supplies, or just the gift of time and expertise. Even if at first glance you feel your business has little to offer us, think again. You may be surprised by some of the imaginative partnerships that end up making a real difference to us and the patients who need us.
Your business can get tax relief if it makes a gift of equipment or trading stock to a charity or Community Amateur Sports Club (CASC). You'll also pay less tax by accounting for the cost of the gift, and this applies whether you're in business as a sole trader, a partnership or a company.

So whether you’re in IT or events, we’d love to hear from you. Contact us on 01634 471 900 or by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
