Corporate Partnerships


Ongoing, mutually beneficial relationships with our local business community are very important to us. This sustainable income helps us plan for the future, ensuring that we remain at the forefront of Hospice care and continue to offer life-enhancing care.
There are many different ways your business could help us, not only continue to care, but to develop and extend our services.


Willow Wood is a much-loved local charity touching the lives of many local people. During 2018-19 alone, we cared for 2,573 patient on our Inpatient Ward, and many more attended our Day Services which offers symptom management, physiotherapy, complementary therapies, dementia home visits and support, counselling and more.
This care extends to the families and loved ones of the patient, and is, and always will be, free of charge.
However, our care comes at a cost. This year it will cost well in excess of £2.8million to maintain and develop our services. We do receive funding of around 21%, but the remainder has to be raised from within our community.
There are a number of ways that we can work together with local businesses - find out how you can help us, and how we can help you.

  • The opportunity to host a Willow Wood networking event at your business

There are many different ways you could help. End-of-line stock, returned goods or unwanted samples could all be donated and sold either in our reception shop or any of our eight shops throughout Tameside and Glossop. Alternatively, certain items could be used as raffle prizes at our events or at Willow Wood itself.

Goods and services could be donated; for example, painters and decorators could donate their time and skills to freshen up our premises. A garage could service our Patient Transport Vehicle, or provide new tyres. Marketing, legal or financial companies could provide mentors or donate their services, while workwear companies could outfit our nurses.


We organise many different events throughout the year, and many of them could provide direct access to your target market.

For example, our Bubble Rush had 1,200 participants, all of whom brought along family and friends to watch them take part. If this had been branded as the Willow Wood Bubble Rush, in partnership with ACME Industries, you would not only have advertised to that number on the day itself, but your logo and link to your business could also have reached just under 250,000 via our Facebook event.

If a family event is not right for your product or services, you could sponsor our annual Royal Ascot Ladies Day Lunch, our Golf Day or Willow Ball for a more mature, higher value audience. Contact our corporate fundraiser to discuss which sponsorship opportunity could match your target market.


Committing to Willow Wood for a full year is a fantastic way to show your clients, customers and colleagues that you support a charity close to the heart of many local people.

There are many ways you could help:

  • · Organise your own event and fundraise for us.
  • · Get a team together to take part in one of our events.
  • · Dress Down Friday.
  • · Collecting cans in your staff room, or where customers could contribute.
  • · Collect donations for our shops from your staff - we can provide a 'donation station'
  • · Volunteer in our gardens or our distribution centre


Our life-enhancing, holistic care is all about helping patients reach their fullest potential, could this fit with your business aspirations?

For example, our treatment includes a number of complementary therapies such as Reiki, reflexology and aromatherapy. We also provide full spa days where patients and their loved ones can benefit from time in our hydrotherapy pool, a massage, a makeover and afternoon tea. This could be an ideal fit with a yoga studio, beautician or complementary therapist, or even a restaurant or café – a donation to Willow Wood from every afternoon tea sold?

Our sensory garden has been designed to incorporate many features for those with limited abilities. Scented plants to trigger memories, textures in both planting and hard landscaping to encourage touch, seed heads and grasses to create sound and movement, pale colours which glow at twilight for failing sight. A garden centre or gardening business would be the obvious partner, but our corporate team could work with decorative paving, wrought iron gate manufacturers, even an optician or hearing aid specialist to create specific marketing connections.

Our Corporate Team can discuss any or all of the options, and will work together with you to find the best fit for your business.
