5 Reasons Why it’s Worth Supporting Charity

Karen Thomson, owner of Kam Hair and Body Spa offers five reasons why she believes its worth supporting charities.

Team building
Supporting charity events is a great team-building exercise, as you can get your staff all together, even those who may not normally work with each other, and have them working as a group to support something and to reach a common goal.

It’s a great networking opportunity
Supporting local charities allows you to speak to people in your local community, build a relationship with them and gain their support and loyalty. It will also give you a good reputation.

It’s good PR exposure
Supporting charities demonstrates to your clients and to the media that your business is dedicated to charitable causes, which can effectively gain you more clients and great press.

It’s good to give back
For us at KAM, supporting local charities is a great way to give back to our small town and build on the community spirit.

It builds employee’s morale
Supporting charities engages our employees, as it makes them feel gratitude and pride towards the business. This then makes morale higher and increases productivity.

There are so many reasons why it’s worth supporting charities but the main aspect is that you are benefiting a good cause. Whether you put together a hamper with some products to raise money for your chosen charity, or do a sponsored walk, run or cycle, every penny you raise counts and it’s a fantastic feeling to donate proceeds to the fantastic charities we have around.
