Fundraising & Volunteering

Fundraising

Get the feel good factor!

Spending time fundraising or volunteering is one of the most rewarding things you can do - just ask the 100s of Sodexo people who experience the feel good factor with Stop Hunger every year!


Volunteering - did you know?

Sodexo employees are entitled to up to three days paid leave each year, to take part in volunteering activities.

You can take:

  • Three days volunteering with Stop Hunger for a charity related to tackling hunger and malnutrition, examples include FareShare and The Trussell Trust
  • One day volunteering for a charity of your choice, either in your local area or further afield
  • The maximum number of paid days is three - so you could opt to volunteer two days to support Stop Hunger and one further day for a charity of your choice!

Volunteering with Stop Hunger is easy and done via Neighbourly. Click here to find out how!

The small print - All paid days are subject to the approval of your line manager. And we’re sorry, if you are an agency worker or on a casual contract you’re not eligible for paid volunteering days, but we’d still love you to get involved!

Five great reasons to fundraise!

  1. Ditch work for the day - that’s because Sodexo allows you up to three paid days’ fundraising a year
  2. Gain new skills - you’ll gain knowledge and experience things which could benefit you – and it may help you in your role at work
  3. Meet people - whether it’s new people in your workplace or the wider community, mixing with different faces boosts your social skills
  4. Improve your health - research has shown that charitable activity has lots of positive health effects
  5. Make a difference - you’ll be helping others and ultimately improving yourself
