Could your business help Oakhaven?
Oakhaven Hospice needs your support now more than ever
We build partnerships with socially-conscious organisations that care about making a difference to the community. We are hugely grateful to the businesses that help us to raise thousands of pounds every year, so that we can continue to provide free palliative care to families throughout the New Forest, Totton and Waterside.
You won’t have to look far to find someone who has been touched by Oakhaven; many of our donors and fundraisers are motivated by first-hand experience of the care we have provided to a loved one.
Your team could make a difference
Whilst donations are very important, supporting Oakhaven is not just about giving money; it can be about supporting events, assisting in obtaining resources or using your contacts to help our message reach the right people. As well as gaining your support, it is important for us to understand your own business objectives and if we can help you in return, we will. Whatever your business, we would love to talk to you. Read on to find out ways that your team could help to make a difference...
Your business can support Oakhaven Hospice in many ways
A focus on Corporate Social Responsibility can help both Oakhaven Hospice and your business
Working together with Oakhaven brings many benefits to local businesses and organisations. From team-building and fundraising fun to a greater understanding and the pride of helping a community cause, our partnerships boost morale whilst enhancing social value and positive PR.
Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) is all about conducting business in an ethical and sustainable way; charitable and community enrichment plays a big part. In addition, CSR is widely acknowledged to enhance customer satisfaction and build loyalty.
We are proud of the relationships we have with our partners, whether they are small local businesses or large multi-national corporations, and we are always looking for new and exciting ways to work together. In partnering with Oakhaven, businesses and employees benefit on many levels.
Give back to your local community
All the money you raise for Oakhaven will help patients and families across the New Forest, Totton and Waterside. Feel a sense of satisfaction from knowing that your efforts are contributing to your local community, boosting morale and motivation, which in turn can promote employee retention.
Gain greater understanding
Many of your employees, customers and suppliers will have had contact with the many services provided at Oakhaven - either personally or through a loved one. Supporting us will provide valuable insight to your employees and can contribute to professional and personal development.
Gain opportunities for team building
When raising money together employees are able to work in teams outside their normal working groups. This promotes a greater sense of camaraderie and unity as employees work towards a common goal that will make a difference locally. We welcome visits to Oakhaven so your team can see directly how your support is helping people in your local community (restrictions depending).
Help promote your business
Your business will benefit from a boost of awareness and positive PR, prompting respect from your clients and suppliers and reaching a wider audience.
Gain networking opportunities
During a normal year, there are numerous opportunities to meet like-minded businesses and members of the local community. Share your vision and be a part of something really worthwhile.
Local fundraising support
Our friendly fundraising team is on hand to support you through your journey and make sure that your fundraising activity is a success. We can come into your workplace or meet via Zoom and give a presentation to your team about Oakhaven Hospice and how fundraising can make a difference.
Become part of the Oakhaven community - together we are stronger
“For a number of years, we’ve supported Oakhaven Hospice’s Family Fun Day. We are also the lead sponsor for Oakhaven’s annual Santa Dash, which starts just outside our office on Lymington High Street. The team suggested that we should don Santa suits and take part in the run and raise even more money with an office raffle of prizes such as theatre tickets. This has all now become a bit of a staff tradition and every year we have lots of fun together raising money for a charity that is very close to our hearts.
“Many of our clients’ lives have been touched by Oakhaven, we hear first-hand how the quality of service and compassionate care provided free of charge to patients is exemplary. And we understand how vital our hospice is to its community. Yet we know that the cost of running Oakhaven’s services is vast and that to secure their future they need every penny that we – and other businesses like us - can raise and provide for them.
“At John D Wood we quietly do our bit to support Oakhaven, both financially and lending a hand when required. We’ve definitely gained a lot of brand awareness and clients from our association such an important and well-respected local charity, but more importantly we want to give something back into the community. What’s more, our team takes a lot of pride in helping this vital charity. We will be continuing our support for many years to come and wholeheartedly recommend to other local businesses that they should support Oakhaven too.”
Kevin Allen, Associate Director of John D Wood & Co
