Here at Reuben’s Retreat your support is very much welcomed, needed and appreciated, we cannot continue our vital beneficiary work and extensive renovation scheme without it. Thank you for visiting our website and here are a few suggestions of how you can help.
Charity of choice
Some companies choose to support us for at least a year. This can be in a number of ways:
- Staff fundraising such as non uniform days, cake sales, quiz nights and events.
- Donate a percentage of sales or a fixed fee per sale
- A one off donation
- Raffles and auctions
- Tuck shop sales
Each corporate company is as individual as we are, we are on hand to discuss all opportunities available. Dependant on the company you work for your fundraising efforts may be match funded by your company. Here is a quick guide to the companies we know of that currently Match Fund.
Bring your service, product, talent or skill
Our overall project is huge and very diverse. First and foremost we support families and in line with this our Retreat is undertaking a multi million pound renovation. It may be that you are able to offer a particular product to support either scheme. Or you may have a specific talent, skill or service that could ultimately save us money. The Lodge at Reuben’s would not be where it is today without such integral assistance.
We have many opportunities for companies to sponsor our services, events & campaigns, and we also have an ongoing Amazon Wishlist where you can purchase something which we need no matter how large or small. Please get in touch for the current opportunities available.
Every day we grow as a charity and our journey is moving at a pace faster than we ever imagined. We need your gifts and prizes from hampers to holidays to generate revenue.
All gifts will be used in an effective way to maximise funds, using raffles, auctions and eBay for Charity.
Many companies offer employees time to volunteer as part of their Corporate Social Responsibility – as we are a growing charity and in the process of renovation works it may not always be possible to place charity day volunteers within our charity due to health & safety regulations however we can always offer alternatives such as hosting awareness stalls, bag packing and attending events. Please get in touch for more details.
Aside from getting involved on behalf of your company you can also choose to work with us personally in your own time on an ad-hoc or regular basis by volunteering with us.
“After I retired I had some spare time, I wanted to help Reuben’s Retreat as they are a local charity that means a lot to my family. I am now a volunteer handy-man – volunteering is good for the soul and I look forward to my volunteering every week I feel valued and part of the Reuben’s Retreat family” Chris Jones
Give As You Earn (Payroll Giving)
Payroll Giving is a flexible scheme which allows anyone who pays UK income tax to give regularly on a tax free basis to charities including Reuben’s Retreat.
Payroll Giving donations are deducted before tax so each £1.00 you give will only cost you 80p if you are a basic rate taxpayer and if you’re a higher rate tax payer, it will only cost you 60p.
