Ways to Support

We will work with you to build a partnership which will be right for your needs. Here are a few of the ways we could work with you:

  • Cause related marketing campaigns – such as product promotions or loyalty programs
  • Corporate donations – you can make a tax deductible donation to enable us to continue to send bikes to vital projects in Africa.  Call us on 01206 617865 (8.30-4.30 Mon-Fri) or donate at www.re-cycle.org/donate
  • Events – as a small team, we don’t yet run our own fundraising events, but we are great at working with companies as an event beneficiary partner
  • Staff fundraising – host a cycle challenge or encourage fun events such as bake sales and raffles.   Your staff will have fun, come together as a team and get directly involved in the partnership
  • Volunteering – we can offer skilled and practical volunteering opportunities for teams and individuals.  Most of our volunteering is offered from our warehouse and office in Colchester.  The volunteering roles we can offer our partner employees are great for skill development, team building and strengthening community investment programs
  • Pro bono support – your products and services are a great way of investing in Re~Cycle, enabling us to reinvest valuable funds and benefit from your expertise
  • Payroll giving – the perfect way for staff to be able to make regular donations in a tax and time effective way.  We’ll work with you to boost the program’s participation rate and measure results. It's a great way for your staff to give more for less
