Appeal for Business Sponsors

Could your company support local communities by partnering with an award winning local charity?

“I really enjoyed the I.T course. I have become more confident. The Clock is fantastic, I’ll never forget their kindness to me”                         refugee of domestic violence and benefactor of training, food parcels, financial assistance, 1-2-1 support"

The Clock is looking to expand our network with the business community. We are seeking to generate new working partnerships and increase awareness of the valuable work we do to support local communities. The Clock is a small independent charitable organisation with a big heart for people.

Our vision is that ‘Everyone feels part of their community’ and as such we deliver a breadth of services including social activities, support and learning opportunities in order to meet our social objectives, which are to:

  • increase employability
  • improve social inclusion
  • improve wellbeing
  • improve community resilience

We work with a wide age range providing services across North Yorkshire; our youngest member is 9 and our oldest member is 93. Our staff work with individuals and families to identify barriers or issues and provide help to address them. The services we offer range from providing a one of careers interview or job search at a drop in, to counselling a distressed individual, to delivering training to increase skills and employability, to intensive support to a homeless person or families affected by poverty.

“The use of computers and internet access is vital. The Clock provides me with the access. I thank The Clock for past help”         Drop In Attendee

All of this helps individuals’ feels less cut off, increases their sense of worth and encourages them to feel part of their community.

“I just want to let you know I got my food hamper and it made me cry how thoughtful people can be to help out families."     Christmas Hamper Recipient

Could you help with fundraising or sponsor a Summer Activity?

We are currently looking for individuals and companies to sponsor our Summer Activity programme. The programme offers learning and social opportunities to local young people who maybe would not be able to access such activities. We aim to increase confidence, self-esteem, team building and communication skills within the young people to help them to be a stronger part of the community.

Below are some of the activities we typically run with average costings based on 14 young people with transport, staff and refreshments

  • Fishing - £300
  • Paintballing - £550
  • Trampoline - £300
  • Footgolf (York) - £300
  • Bowling (tenpin York) - £300
  • Cinema (teeside park) - £300
  • Ice skating - £300
  • Day at the beach  & Team Building - £325
  • Go-karting - £550

“Would you like to sponsor an activity in return for promoting and advertising your company to over 1400 of our Friends and Supporters plus the local community?”

“For me The Clock means an awful lot, it has been invaluable to our family. My daughter has been in hospital for a significant period of time. The Clock has been there for support, help and advice, taking the other children for days out. Without The Clock, we would have really struggled” – Parent of Young Members

If you are part of a business or organisation that is interested in supporting a local charity and changing lives within our community we would love the opportunity to meet with you for an informal chat.  Please feel free to get in touch to find out more  - we look forward to hearing from you!
