Why Choose The Countess Charity?

Employees who are actively fundraising in the community in which they are employed / offices based are living, breathing brand ambassadors for your business. They are generating, good stories and content to share whether that is through a press release, website story, social media post or all three, and creating networking opportunities with likeminded business owners and employees.

The fundraising activity can be anything from an auction of promises to a zumbathon organised by staff, arranging matched funding for an event or a more regular and sustained fundraising channel through a charity of the year partnership. Sponsoring one of our well attended events such as the Ladies Lunch or Sportsman’s Dinner, or attending these events, simply supporting with a raffle or auction prize, or entering the Annual Chester Duck Race.

Showing your support in any of the above mentioned ways offers a chance for you to access new customers and retain existing customers, make improvement to services you can offer and offer new ones.

Showing your support to The Countess Charity can allow you to improve, continue, develop, enhance or indeed implement a Corporate Social Responsibility Strategy benefiting the society and environment in which you operate.

 “As a small business owner in the Chester area I thoroughly enjoyed getting involved with the Chester Duck Race, purchasing a corporate duck was great fun for the family (she travelled everywhere with us), gained us great engagement on social media, networking opportunities and gave us the satisfaction of supporting such a great local charity.  Talks have already started on how to decorate our duck for next year’s race! Thanks to the fundraising team for such a great experience

Supporting an event with The Countess Charity is a great way to promote your business to the local community, the hospital community, engage with staff, your customer base and support a local charity at the same time.

Without your help, many of our events could not take place or would not raise the level of funding they do. If you are involved in a local business and are interested in supporting us, please contact our Corporate Fundraising Manager, Hanna on 01244 366397 or hannaclarke@nhs.net
