“We thoroughly enjoyed our time at Whirlow Hall Farm and would recommend it to any business looking for a good cause to support. Not only did we gain an understanding about the amazing work the charity does on a daily basis from the farm tour, we also gained a new skill (dry stone walling) and had a rewarding day knowing our hard work would ultimately help the charity. It was really worth while having a day out of the normal office environment and working alongside colleagues in a relaxed atmosphere. Thank you to Lucinda and the team for being so accommodating and welcoming to the Steel City team!”
We hold regular networking breakfasts around the city, proving to be a great opportunity to meet Sheffield’s finest business people - and you'll get a delicious Whirlow breakfast to set you up for the day! To join the mailing list, email firstname.lastname@example.org
You can join our group on LinkedIn here too so you don’t miss out!
Enhance your profile among your target audience, generate excellent PR and marketing opportunities and lots of benefits for your staff by supporting one of our main events at the Farm. This might be for Lambing Events, Easter, Sheff’s Kitchen, Beer and Bangers, Farm Fayre, Halloween or Christmas Fayre. Every penny helps us create a wonderful event for the communities around us and supports our mission to help vulnerable children and young people in our region.
This is one of the easiest, most tax efficient ways of making a regular donation. Donations are taken from gross pay so will cost you up to 40% less as a result. Some lovely companies even match staff donations!
Do you have skills or facilities that we could use? Several local businesses are already getting stuck in and helping us with maintenance, equipment, and skills.
Getting away from your desk and out into the fresh air on the farm is a great experience. We lways need help setting up for and delivering our fundraising events. Farm activity volunteering is always great fun. As these opportunities are rare we save these for businesses who regularly support us on one of the ways listed above.
