Taylor Wimpey – “Our shopping basket initiative for staff to bring-in store cupboard items and toiletries was a great way for people to easily make a helpful contribution that makes a simple but real difference to someone’s daily life, whilst being part of The Rock Trust’s big fundraiser – ‘The Sleep Out’ – gave us all a stark vision of what life’s like out on the streets and first-hand experience of the challenges that face The Rock Trust on a daily basis”.

If your company is able to support us, please remember to find out if it has a policy of match funding sums that its staff team raises. Many organisations do offer this and it can in cases double the value of your fundraising efforts!
