Charity of the year

The Colostomy Association is asking supporters and volunteers to help our fundraising efforts and raise awareness of living with a stoma by asking their employers, school, association, or club to make it their charity of the year...  

Charity of the Year is an exciting prospect for both the organisation and the Colostomy Association as it allows two parties to come together to achieve great things for the benefit of people with a stoma, their carers, and family members. Charity of the year partnerships can take many forms and are designed to ensure that both the organisation and our charity benefit from the relationship.

Ways to get involved:

  • Employee participation in our events
  • Hosting a collection box
  • Donating time by volunteering
  • Encouraging staff to donate clothes and jewellery
  • Holding a fundraising event
  • Making a financial donation
  • Donating gifts in kind
  • Sponsoring an event

Many people want to support charitable activities and, in our experience, this means people prefer to support small charities where there involvement can make a real and visible difference. This often means that people have a 'vested' interest and engage more fully with charitable activities.

We work with you along the way to ensure you are supported and acknowledged by the charity, working in a professional way to ensure that both the charity and the organisation benefit from the partnership.

If your organisation would like to consider becoming a Charity of the Year partner or alternative bespoke partnership that fulfils your organisational needs, please initially contact
