Our work simply wouldn’t be possible without the generosity of our corporate partners. Spread a Smile has a track record of developing successful partnerships with companies across a range of industry sectors. We are proud of the strong relationships we have developed and maintained with so many wonderful companies as together, we have made a lasting difference to the lives of vulnerable children in hospital. We are interested in working in partnership with all companies who are in a position to consider Spread a Smile as your Charity of the Year or commercial partner, the beneficiary of corporate donations or employee and customer fundraising and/or are interested in speaking with us about sharing expertise and cause related marketing.
We are eager to work with companies interested in making a real and positive difference to the lives of seriously ill and hospitalised children. Please contact Imogen Slazenger, Head of Fundraising, on 020 7482 5191 or email email@example.com
‘It is such a privilege to support Spread a Smile. The Canary Wharf Contractors Fund have loved building a relationship with the team there over the last few years and we always jump at an opportunity to support and attend their brilliant events. Their work supporting seriously ill children and their families speaks for itself and it’s a no brainer for colleagues and our supply chain to engage in our partnership with them.’ – Alec Vallintine, Chairman, Canary Wharf Contractors Fund

Spread a Smile is committed to collecting data about the work we do and using it to measure our reach and impact. We report openly and honestly about the funding we receive and tailor our reports to the interests and objectives of each of our partners. We regularly collect case studies from children, families and hospital staff to demonstrate the difference any partnership has made to their lives.
‘We first crossed paths with Spread a Smile a few years ago when we donated to the crowdfunding page of Rob Threadgold (Chair of Spread a Smile’s Business Advisory Group); I knew then that this would be a great charity for us to support. We had supported numerous charities in the past but this one felt special; the amazing work the team does to help bring joy and smiles to children and their families whilst in hospital is very heartwarming. It brings me great satisfaction helping the team raise money, to help bring some positivity to the children’s journey.’ – Lee McDowell, Group CEO & Managing Director, LMAC Group Ltd
