Find out how your company could help Minstead Trust by sponsoring –

  • An Event
  • A Project
  • A Capital Item

At Minstead Trust, we hold fundraising events that your company can make even more successful with the help of  sponsorship, or donations of goods or money to support the event.  Such as our popular Wine and Cheese event at Furzey Gardens, or our Murder mystery event at Minstead Lodge.  

These fundraising events are great nights, attended by supporters and their friends, and members of the public.  We advertise and promote our events in the local press and through social media with nearly 5000 direct followers on Facebook alone!

As a charity, supporting people with Learning Disabilities we provide opportunities for training and employment.  Projects that enable people to develop and reach their potential are a key part of our work – such as our Friendship and Advice groups, and our Skilling for Independence short courses.  These projects require funds, and company sponsorship can be the difference in getting these projects off the ground to help more of those we support more quickly.  Funds towards room hire, materials, promotion and expert staff for example.  Your company could sponsor a community project for 6 months with a sponsorship of just £1500.

Then there are large items and equipment that Minstead Trust needs, in order to provide support and training to people with Learning Disabilities.  Without our minibuses for example, many of those we support would not be able to reach us.  In our gardens where our students work and are trained, machinery such as sit on mowers and small tractors are used, and of course smaller items are always needed like wheelbarrows, gloves and hand tools.  At present our Catering and Hospitality social enterprise is in need of updated kitchen and catering equipment.   Without the equipment, our services cannot operate effectively which impacts our ability to provide the level of support and training that people with Learning Disabilities deserve and that we pride ourselves in.

In return, your business can be sure that your help will make a real difference.  You can also expect a warm welcome and a good feeling when you see firsthand the difference your company has made.  And of course promotional activity around the event and your donation, with the potential of logo placement too.  We love photos, likes and shares! and our Furzey Gardens Christmas lighting event reached over 120000 people on Facebook. 

Sponsorship is a great way to support Minstead Trust, a local charity, and raise the profile of your business at the same time.
