Why work with Mellor Country House ?
Mellor Country House gives your company a unique opportunity to make a real difference to the lives of families and groups who usually live in stressful environments. Mellor Country House is a very worthwhile cause, which has developed in the local area and is supported by the local community.
We have a variety of long and short term projects your staff would be able to contribute to. A session spent laying a patio or redecorating a room can be a great team building experience. Motivate and involve your employees to have fun and also support a cause close to many local people's hearts.
How can your company help?
We have received support from several companies over the past few years. Some have donated goods, sent one-off donations or become involved in a team building exercise. Others have wanted to become more involved after visiting us, wanting a longer-term relationship and have adopted us as their Charity of the Year.
Charity of the Year
Your company may ask for nominations for a charity, or may have committee who decide to help a different charity each year. We would be delighted if you would put our name forward or let us know who to get in touch with. Take us on as your Charity of the Year, setting your own agenda and have fun organising your own events such as car washes, Bazaars, dress down days, custard pie throwing, and many more. Although such events may raise only a small amount of funds, it all adds up and a lot of your staff can benefit from being involved in the fun.
Some of our corporate supporters choose to do something that has a benefit to the community on the days they set aside for team building events. Getting involved in a decorating or gardening project is a very cost effective team building exercise. Team building, leadership and management staff training have traditionally taken place in specialist centres, by providing this training at Mellor you will have an end result that benefits staff and helps a local charity and/or the community. It is also extremely rewarding for the individuals concerned. The projects are achievable tasks which can unite team members and have a positive effect on the moral, motivation and confidence of the teams. Your people will not only have a great time they will get a great feeling of satisfaction as will Mellor House.
- Decorating bedrooms, entrance hallway, stairs and landing.
- Kitchen refurbishment.
- Gardening activities such as bulb planting renovation work and painting woodwork.
- Small building projects for example a new bike shelter, low stone garden wall
Many of the corporate schemes last one or a few days and make a real difference to the environment our visitors enjoy.
A series of events are held throughout the year. There are sponsorship opportunities for the whole event or individual elements and have your company name and logo attached to it. Or help a group or family to stay without having to find the funds.
Your company may have a volunteer programme, giving time off to volunteer for a local charity. The benefit of becoming involved is twofold, supporting a local worthwhile cause and the contribution back into the local community. You may need to contact your HR department to see how this works. We'll work closely with you to meet whatever your business objectives are to create a mutually beneficial experience.
