Giving a little bit back
Is the company you work for looking to pick a new Charity of the Year?
Perhaps your business is looking to meet its Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) objectives by supporting a cause that transforms the lives of children and adults living with a disability?
Fundraising for us means that you want to back a small, national charity that is working hard to meet the unmet needs of people in the UK who rely on assistive technologies to improve their well-being.
We can help you to motivate your colleagues, attract new customers and profile your generous support through a number of ways to show how you are working to make a difference.
Whether you choose to back our Wizzybug Loan Scheme for disabled children under 5, or opt to support our future product development, we would love to work with you to make your fundraising a great success.
Viridor has been tirelessly fundraising to fund a whole Wizzybug to benefit more children. Their efforts have been a combination of: challenge events, themed office days and a work ‘safety bonus’ where they receive £5 per employee, for each month that passes without incident which they then donate to their chosen charity.
“The Wizzybug Loan Scheme really struck a chord with us all because nearly all of our staff are either parents or grandparents. We all recognised the real benefits of Wizzybugs and, as parents ourselves, felt we could genuinely relate to the immense assistance Designability provides to those living with a disability.
“I was fortunate enough to be able to visit the workshops where the Wizzybugs are made and maintained and was impressed at the passion with which the loan scheme’s staff treated the importance of their roles. I could sense that everyone really believed in what they were doing and that it was unusually satisfying work.
“The charity inspired the team to hold fundraising activities that they would never have considered doing before. One ran a marathon and another took part in a challenging motorcycle beach race. The office staff and many of our visitors even took part in various themed events where certain people dressed up in costume for the entertainment of others!”

The team at their Hinckley office raised enough to fund a whole Wizzybug through a Matched Giving Scheme. Fundraising activities included a Christmas fun day, wristband sales and taking on a gruelling military obstacle course.
The Bath branches of Natwest decided to raise funds with in-store collection tins on display with one of our Wizzybugs and details of the loan scheme. They topped up the customer donations with a corporate golf day and auction.
The support from the London and Bristol offices of Irwin Mitchell led to the funding of two new Wizzybugs for children. They took part in a variety of community fundraising events as well as covering the costs of t-shirt printing and Where’s Wizzy? storybooks to give to each Wizzybug child and their siblings.
We were Buro Happold’s Charity of the Year for 2014. Their staff really got stuck in to fundraising events by co-ordinating a raffle, hosting a Christmas Jumper Day and running in the Bath Half.
