Bring Your Staff Together

The past year has been difficult for all of us and many companies are finding that staff feel disconnected, either from working virtually, or have been just too busy to stop and have a bit of fun.

We want to help your staff have some fun together, while also raising vital funds for Phyllis Tuckwell, so we’ve come up with some great ways for you to reignite that office camaraderie. Whether it’s virtual, in 3D or a mixture, we have lots of great fundraising ideas that will bring your staff together.

Join Phyllis Tuckwell in Mince Pie Mayhem this Christmas!

We have loads of fun activities based around the humble mince pie to bring a smile to your staff faces and get everyone together this festive season.

Whether you are working together or remotely, simply set up a Just Giving page and ask for a donation to take part!

Activities for Mince Pie Mayhem include:

Mince Pie Bake off
Get your best bakers competing to bake the best mince pie. After the judging, sell them for extra money!
