Calling all local charities – register to get help for your projects

15 November 2007: FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Calling all local charities – get on the register for some help

If you are involved with a charity and have a list of projects you need doing, help may well be at hand. A new national listing has been launched which aims to match charity projects with businesses looking to do some good for local projects and communities.

Organisers of the listing, the CSR Register say projects can be large or small. Examples include refurbishing buildings, rooms, putting in disabled access, organising a fundraiser, helping with an awareness campaign, launching a new service, holding a party, landscaping gardens and environmental projects.

It’s free to register as many projects as needed. Richard Strange, director CSR Register says: “Businesses are more keen than ever to show they are responsible not only on green issues but also social and community involvement. However, the truth for many is when they try and get involved finding the right project is harder than anyone imagines – getting the right location, type of charity, size and duration of project.”

The CSR Register is a listing of live projects of all shapes and sizes. Businesses can search for a project quickly using multiple criteria. CSR is short for social responsibility a real buzz word for responsible behaviour by businesses.

Richard Strange continued: “Businesses come to us if they want an exercise for a training course, an icebreaker for a conference, an event or for ideas for teambuilding and personal development.”

“Some companies are undertaking charity projects and challenges rather than send their people on things like expensive trips and driving 4×4 courses, which add little value to the people, the community and only contribute to global warming.”

You can register your charity’s projects at

www.csrregister.com

at anytime by filling in a simple form on the website.
