There are hundreds of ways to get employees involved in fundraising for Richard House. From simple dress-down Fridays to swapping jobs or organising a sponsored event, there is something for every workplace.
Our exclusive office event Boss in the box:
Ever wanted to lock your boss away from the day? Now is your chance! Our exclusive office event Boss in the box is a fun workplace fundraising activity. We have a 2 x 2 metre Perspex box just waiting for you to lock your boss inside!
Lock your boss in the box for the day, or several bosses for a few hours and don´t let them out until they’ve raised enough money from their contacts. Outside of the box, employees raise money to keep the boss inside the box!
