Local Business and Corporate Support

Pathways 4 All welcomes local businesses and corporate support.  We are very keen to build mutually beneficial partnerships.  As a North-East based charity, you will be able to see the impact of your work first hand.  We will be delighted to show you around the Tim Lamb Centre and explain what we do.  Your support can really make a difference to local disabled children and their families.

Encouraging your staff to work collectively towards a charitable goal can help develop teamwork skills and boost their morale.  Our partnership could also help lift your company profile among other local businesses and within the wider community as a whole.

There are a number of ways your company can support us, here are just a few suggestions;

Charity of the Year

By choosing us as your charity of the year, you can make a big difference in the lives of local disabled children.  Over the course of 12 months or more, your fundraising efforts could sponsor a special event for our families, like one of our summer family days out or our Children’s Christmas Party.  Alternatively, your donation may enable us to purchase a specialist piece of equipment for the Tim Lamb Centre.

If your fundraising efforts include public events, we can help you advertise them on our social media platforms.  We can also provide you with information and publicity material as required.  We always look forward to inviting our partner charities along to the Tim Lamb Centre and we will take every opportunity to celebrate our partnership throughout the year.

Charity of the Year

“We decided to support Pathways 4 All as we wanted to help disabled and disadvantaged children in our local community. We chose Pathways 4 All after reading all about the fabulous work Lynn had done to help other families.  We love being involved with this fantastic charity, which gives so much pleasure to local children in a comfortable and safe environment”.   
Darren Wetherell. Branch Manger, Whitley Bay Hays Travel.  

‘Give £50’ Corporate Challenge

It’s a simple idea; we’ll give you a nice crisp £50 note at the beginning of the year and your challenge is to use it to make as much money as possible!

How you do this is entirely up to you.  Embrace your entrepreneurial spirit, be creative and have some fun!  We can offer you a few ideas to get started and we are sure you will have plenty of ideas of your own.

Organise a Fundraising Event

Is your company looking to organise a one-off fundraising event for a local charity?  Whether you are a local pub looking to host a charity night or a large organisation planning a dress down day, we would love to hear from you!

If your fundraising event is open to the public, we can help you advertise it on social media and provide you with information and publicity material as required.  When you have completed your fundraising event, you will be welcomed along to the Tim Lamb Centre to present your donation to us and we will actively celebrate your generosity on our website and social media platforms.

Annual Charity Ball

Our annual charity ball is our most glamourous event of the year.  Corporate tables for 10 guests are available with welcome drinks, 3-course meal and a full entertainment programme included.   This year’s annual ball is at The Grand Hotel, Gosforth Park on Saturday 9th October.  Please visit our events page for more information.

Corporate Hero Sponsorship Scheme

You can make an ongoing difference to the lives of local disabled children by joining our Corporate Heroes Sponsorship Scheme.  For a commitment of £30 per month, your company could sponsor a child’s place on one of our activity programmes.

Corporate Hero Sponsorship Scheme

At TLW Solicitors we wanted to demonstrate continued support to the invaluable services that everyone at Pathways 4 All provides.  The Corporate Heroes scheme allows us to do this.  It really was easy to set up and shows to our staff, outside partners and clients that we have a continuing and sustainable relationship which benefits our local community”.

Volunteer Days

Corporate volunteer days are a great opportunity to get involved in some of the necessary organisational and general maintenance tasks which need to be undertaken at the Tim Lamb Centre.

We have a large outdoor play garden, so your volunteering day could involve gardening tasks and grounds maintenance.   Alternatively, we may have a forthcoming activity or event requiring preparation.  If some of your employees have advanced technology skills, like computer maintenance or programming, we have an ICT suite that would always benefit from health checks.  Or maybe there is someone who could advise our staff team on new computer software programmes that would benefit our organisation or even develop us a mobile app!

Due to the nature of our organisation,  we can only accommodate larger staff teams at certain times of the year.  It is also really helpful when these days are planned well in advance so we can make the best use of our volunteers and in turn offer a worthwhile experience for your employees.

If you would like to know more about our charity and the ways you can support us, please contact our CEO Lynn McManus.   Alternatively please call the office on 0191 266 5233 to arrange a visit to the Tim Lamb Centre, one of our team members would be delighted to show you round and tell you a little more about the work we do.
