Corporate fundraising & Payroll Giving

Breast Cancer Haven works with a range of corporate partners throughout the UK. Partnering with us shows that your company is socially responsible, provides great team-building opportunities, and can be great fun.

Working with companies has helped us provide vital support to the growing number of people living with breast cancer in the UK. We’ve worked with many corporate partners in a range of ways including, cause-related marketing campaigns, charity of the year partnerships, in-office fundraising, payroll giving and sponsorship.

Our team has corporate client side and in-house charity experience, so we can understand your priorities. We are creative and open to opportunities to develop a partnership.

We ensure every partnership we enter into is mutually beneficial and we work with our partners to ensure a true partnership that delivers for both parties.

If your business would like to partner with us then get in touch today.

CAUSE RELATED MARKETING

1 in 7 women develop breast cancer in their lifetime (Cancer Research) so we need to work in partnership with the corporate sector to ensure that our support offering reaches as many people as possible.

Combining the power of our brand with your brand, cause related marketing (CRM) is an effective and well-established way to:

  • Drive sales
  • Improve customer loyalty 
  • Reach new audiences
  • Stand out from competitors
  • Generate positive media
  • Engage staff and customers 
  • Develop partner stories

Research shows that these relationships work. 

86% of consumers are more likely to buy a product that is associated with a cause or issue 

73% of consumers agree that they would switch brands for the same reason (source: Business in the Community).

You can develop a year-round partnership with us or support us during our main campaigns, such as Breast Cancer Awareness Month in October or The Big Tea Cosy.

ALEX MONROE

We are delighted to have received support from this internationally renowned jewellery designer over many years. Alex has designed bespoke Breast Cancer Haven necklaces which have been sold through the Alex Monroe website with profits being donated to the charity. He has also designed exclusive jewellery for our signature events to support our fundraising activities.

AMOENA UK

We are so proud to be partnering with Amoena UK in supporting women’s confidence to live an active life after a diagnosis of breast cancer or women who are otherwise breast-shape challenged.

This year, each time you purchase one of their best-selling T-shirt bras from the Lee and Lara ranges, they’ll donate 30% of net proceeds to us. We’re so grateful to Amoena for their continued support during this difficult time.

Our relationship with The Estée Lauder Companies UK & Ireland has been significant over the years. ELC UK & Ireland has supported Breast Cancer Haven since 2015, when our Wessex support centre opened near to the Company’s distribution facility at Kite’s Croft. In June 2018, the Evelyn H. Lauder Garden was unveiled at the Breast Cancer Haven, West Midlands centre, in recognition of the 25th Anniversary of ELC’s Breast Cancer Campaign. 

FURNITURE VILLAGE

Furniture Village are long-term supporters of Breast Cancer Haven. We are incredibly grateful for the furniture that they have kindly donated for all our centres.

LITTLE GREENE PAINT COMPANY

Since our partnership began in 2012, The Little Greene Paint Company has raised nearly £97,000 to support women affected by a diagnosis of breast cancer. Throughout Breast Cancer Awareness Month, Little Greene kindly donated 15p from every tin of paint and roll of wallpaper sold, engaging both their stockists and customers with the campaign. It was a fantastic partnership which allowed Little Greene to demonstrate their support to women affected by breast cancer and differentiate their products from their competitors.

In addition to monetary donations, our beautiful centres were made even more welcoming and serene with the kind donation of paint from Little Greene. The team also took part in our national fundraising campaign, The Big Tea Cosy and have hosted their own fundraising events including their Confetti Ball which raised over £15,000

KITCHENAID

KitchenAid have been fantastic partners for us and supported two of our key campaigns in the calendar, The Big Tea Cosy and Breast Cancer Awareness Month. KitchenAid kindly provided their KitchenAid experience store in London for our annual Breast Cancer Awareness photography exhibition and donated a percentage of sales of their Raspberry Ice collection throughout the month of October. They raised a phenomenal amount for Breast Cancer Haven, raising in excess of £288,305

KitchenAid were fantastic supporters of our Big Tea Cosy campaign and offered prize incentives to encourage supporters to sign up and host their own tea party.

LOVEKNITTING

LoveKnitting have been proud supporters of The Big Tea Cosy since the campaign started in 2015. As well as promoting the campaign to their customers they also supported us by selling exclusive knitting and crochet partners with the profits coming to Breast Cancer Haven.

WAITROSE

Waitrose launched a charity bag which we were proud beneficiaries of. Working in collaboration with Emma Bridgewater, we were excited to receive a percentage of the sales of the Emma Bridgewater Pink Hearts bag stocked in Waitrose stores. In addition to this partnership, the team at Waitrose hosted a Big Tea Cosy in March and helped to raise vital funds for women living with breast cancer. So far Waitrose has raised £110,872 from the partnership.
