OST Marketing fundraising

We love our corporate fundraisers

As a leading children’s mental health charity in Cambridgeshire, we’re grateful to any business or community organisation which wishes to fundraise for Blue Smile.

When fundraising for us, we want you to know that every penny you raise for us impacts positively in the support we provide to young people in schools right across Cambridgeshire.

One local business which has chosen to fundraise for Blue Smile is OST Marketing.

They’re a specialist B2B social media agency, based in Cambridge. OST works with large tech businesses, providing them with social media strategy, creative, community management, advertising and insights.

They explain how they fundraised for Blue Smile and how they found fundraising for a local mental health charity.

Putting ‘fun’ in fundraising!

“As a company we decided we wanted to fundraise for a local charity as our charity of the year. The staff took a vote on a number of local charities and Blue Smile came out on top!

We’ve done things from bake-offs to bike rides over the last year to raise funds for Blue Smile.

Every year we host a 4-week bake-off with a different theme each week and people pay to judge – it’s great fun and the staff love getting involved.

At the end of 2022 we did our first static bike challenge cycling from Cambridge to Paris over the course of a few days – it was a real team effort to get the miles in and we raised over £600!

Coming up this year we are looking at hosting a Mario-kart tournament for the staff!”

‘I love being a part of the OST CSR committee which help orchestrate the fundraising we do for blue smile. It’s so rewarding to be raising funds for this amazing, local charity where we can see first-hand all the good the money is helping to achieve

Sally, Corporate fundraiser, OST Marketing

An amazing team

“We have an amazing group of people who are really passionate about supporting the local community.

Our team generally can work in quite siloed teams so when we put on a charity fundraiser it’s a fantastic opportunity for the staff from any department, at any level to all come together.

As an agency we want to do our part and positively impact the world as well as supporting our staff to do the same.

We’d highly recommend other businesses bring that into a core part of their culture”.
