To continue its work, Merton Giving Week is back for 2019. In its second year the week marks a dedicated focus on fundraising to help grow the Merton Giving Fund to provide financial support to charities working locally.
Businesses, community groups and residents across the borough are being invited to join in and do whatever takes their fancy during Merton Giving Week to raise money to help grow the Merton Giving Fund. Participation is encouraged in one of the following ways;
Buy One Give Some
Give shopping meaning - nominating a product or service you sell and make a donation for everyone sold during the week. We invite businesses to be as creative as they like - they could even, for example, launch their own product for a week creating a bespoke cocktail, as Suburban Bar did in 2018, or by offering a special dish of the day. Aya Cuisine donated money from every table they served during Merton Giving Week in 2018 and we’re delighted that they are set to support the week again this year.
Funky Friday is back! Why not dress in funky style on Funky Friday 6th December and make a donation to Merton Giving. You could opt for an entire outfit to make a statement or convey your style by simply adding that Funky accessory. The perfect opportunity for businesses, community groups and schools to get involved in supporting their local community.
Make your own pledge
We’re asking people to give in their own way that works for them. Businesses could donate their professional skills or even run their own event - host a quiz, bake off or donate from a sponsored event.
This year, we are thrilled to announce that Premier Chamber member, Peacock and Co solicitors has committed to making Merton Giving their charity of the year for 2020. Their support will begin with Merton Giving Week when they will be offering their professional skills (and waiving their fees) to write wills in exchange for donations to Merton Giving.
This is a great chance to write or update your will whilst supporting Merton Giving. To find out more and book your space contact email@example.com or 020 8944 5290. Appointments are limited so please book early.
