There are many ways in which a Partnership with Saint Catherine’s can benefit your organisation. These can include direct commercial gains through further strengthening your business profile and reputation by association with a great cause, as well as indirect benefits through enhanced motivation of your staff and contractors by encouraging them to work together in fundraising activities.
Saint Catherine’s Friends in Business
As well as fundraising in your workplace, you are also able to sign your business or workplace up to our giving scheme ‘Saint Catherine’s Friends in Business’.
Making a regular charitable donation to Saint Catherine’s is a way for businesses to reduce tax bills at the same time as supporting the care we provide to our patients and their loved ones.
Limited companies, partnerships and sole traders can all pay less tax when they give to charity. This is because donations are tax deductible against the profits of a company. Donations from sole trader or business partnership are paid net of tax and the charity claims a tax credit on top, direct from HMRC.
For the duration of your business’ commitment to regular giving, your business would receive the benefit of our new ‘Friends in Business’ accreditation, for use on:
- Company stationery
- Company website
- All of your marketing literature
How your business can make a difference:
£50 a month could pay for a Clinical Nurse Specialist visit.
£100 a month could pay for a patient to visit our Wellbeing Centre.
£250 a month could pay for a 24 hour stay for a patient on our In-Patient Unit.
For further information and details on how you can sign up, you can either download our brochure or give our fundraising team a call on 01723 351421.

Bring a Pound to Work Day
Every year local radio station This is the Coast works in partnership with Saint Catherine’s to host Bring a Pound to Work Day, which is exactly what it says on the tin. This is the Coast campaigns for as many businesses as possible to get their employees to bring a pound to work and staff from the radio station go round all businesses and collect the money with help from the fundraisers at Saint Catherine’s. In 2019 this was held on 12th March and you can read more about the day here.
