Have you thought of asking your employer, or other companies you may have connections with, if they might be able to support The Thyroid Trust?
Lots of companies are keen to support charities and they are often all the more keen if a staff member or customer suggests it to them.
We have been incredibly fortunate to be offered use of meeting room space by Transport for London,
thanks so our supporter Mike Reid who is a train driver and very kindly asked his boss and the other decision makers there on our behalf. Our September 2019 meeting will be the first one at TfL's Palestra building and the staff there have been wonderfully welcoming. Huge thanks to Mike and all of his colleagues who have been so very supportive.
We have also been offered and are looking forward to receiving a free roll up banner from another company who contacted us just after our charity registration was confirmed, Expocart.
Marketing materials can be expensive but are incredibly valuable to help us create a good impression and raise awareness at events we attend. Having a professional looking banner at conferences and the like has been a wonderful way for us to attract attention and now we will have two. Yay! Thanks to Ray and his colleagues at Expocart, we'll share a photo when we have it. Hopefully we might get it in time to display it at our September event. Very happy to share details of this offer which is available to all registered charities via the banner below.
Supermarkets often support local causes. Could you nominate The Thyroid Trust?
If your company has a chosen charity, could you suggest they consider supporting us?
if you need a charity speaker for a company gala dinner, how about us?
Thinking about a charity cake sale with your colleagues, or some kind of coffee morning? We'd be honoured to be beneficiaries.
If your company has a charitable arm that supports good causes - please suggest us.
And if there are people in your company with skills that could help us, who may like to volunteer, yes please!!
Just planting some seeds of ideas with you dear thyroid friends. Thanks for reading and for all your good wishes.
