There are lots of ways you and your company can support RICE, from holding your own fundraising event at work through to participating in a sponsored event such as the Bath Half Marathon through to a tandem skydive!
Supporting a charity is a great way to develop team work and helps engender a great team spirit and goodwill for your company – as well as having fun whilst raising money for a vital cause. Capture the 'Feel Good Factor' and get out in your community and show that your company can really make a difference.

Setting up payroll giving means your colleagues can give to a vital cause and make a real difference the whole year round. Easy to set up and simple to manage, payroll giving is an effortless and tax-effective way to support RICE.
Payroll Giving is a flexible scheme which allows anyone who pays UK income tax to give regularly and on a tax free basis to the charities and good causes of their choice. Donations are deducted before tax so each £1.00 you give will only cost you 80p, and if you're a higher rate tax payer it will only cost you 60p.
Employees can choose to support any charity of their choice with a regular donation direct from their pay and it’s cheaper because its tax free - for example, a donation of £5 per month costs the basic rate tax payer £4.00 (the taxman pays the rest!)
