Helping As A Business


We offer businesses, large and small, a number of opportunities to work with us, to help children with special/additonal needs and their families.

Helping a charity like COG to make a difference to the lives of children has widespread appeal:

  • Your employees will be able to get involved in fundraising activities.
  • Your involvement will generate positive publicity for your business.
  • You can involve suppliers, customers and other stakeholders.

Ways of helping

Charity of the Year...

Why not adopt Cirencester Opportunity Group as your company’s Charity of the Year and challenge your employees, customers and suppliers to raise as much money as they can over the year to help people in our local area? We find that people respond well to fundraising that helps local people.

Collection boxes...

Offer to place one of our collection boxes in your office, restaurant or shop.

Employee fundraising

Encourage your employees to organise events to raise money to help children with special and additional needs. The possibilities are endless – golf days, race nights, dinner dances, competitions, fun runs, dress down days. These fun events boost employee morale and team work as well as raise money for a worthy cause.
