Here are six of the corporate partnerships that are currently supporting charities through a variety of activities around the UK.
Club de Golfa Alcanada

Club de Golf Alcanada & Golfing4Life

Club de Golf Alcanada is again helping some of the UK’s talented golfers fulfil their dreams by giving them unlimited free access to its course in Mallorca as part of a five-week warm weather training camp. Not-for-profit organisation Golfing4Life, which provides financial support for young players, will take 17 golfers to the course in Mallorca throughout January and the start of February. It is the second time Alcanada’s director of golf, Kristoff Both, has donated use of its facilities to the group free of charge. As well as unlimited free golf, Alcanada is also giving the group free use of range balls and soft drinks and discounted food and buggies.
QBE & Breast Cancer Care

QBE & Breast Cancer Care

QBE has smashed its fundraising target for Breast Cancer Care. Employees chose Breast Cancer Care as their charity partner with the aim of raising £200,000 by the end of December 2017. The target was surpassed by 45%, as the partnership raised a total of £289,064. Year one activity included a one of a kind cycle challenge named ‘Tour de QBE’ which saw hundreds of QBE employees taking to their bikes across the UK. The event raised £82,000 compared to a £50,000 target. In the second year, QBE launched the ‘Hours of Hope’ campaign, which challenged every QBE UK employee to raise or donate £25 in October to mark Breast Cancer Awareness Month – this raised more than £74,000 in just one month.
