Most small businesses don’t have large marketing budgets, and most large companies are approached regularly by charities. We can help you spend yours wisely, promoting your business in our shared community. We can also help your company make a measurable difference to local people in our shared community.
So, how can the Chilterns MS Centre support your business?
We are a friendly, dynamic and ambitious local charity. Whatever form our partnership takes, we will work hard to ensure it has value and meaning for you, your partners, colleagues and stakeholders.
We will help promote your brand and enhance your reputation locally, helping you make a meaningful difference to disadvantaged people in Bucks, Herts, Beds and surrounding counties. We can help motivate your employees and customers.

Our next event will be at the Chilterns MS Centre on Thursday 15 March. Arrive for 5.30pm for a tour of our facilities and an opportunity to meet people with multiple sclerosis, or arrive for 6pm for the networking and speakers.
March’s speaker will be Sophie Devonshire, CEO at The Caffeine Partnership. Sophie is an experienced business leader, entrepreneur and brand specialist. Having worked for Procter & Gamble, Coca-Cola GB, Interbrand and Leo Burnett, Sophie founded and sold an e-commerce business, was CEO of a luxury gifts brand and has launched a strategic brand consultancy. Her 20 minute talk is entitled ‘How to lead in a world of speed’.
Are you suffering from information overload? Probably! A recent study found that we're bombarded by the equivalent of 174 newspapers' worth of data a day. In one day alone, 300 million photos are uploaded to Facebook. People tweet 500 million times. Brits make on average 132 million mobile phone calls. The growth in the internet and 24-hour television means we now receive five times as much information every day as we did 30 years ago. Is it any wonder we feel tired sometimes?!
Help is at hand! Sophie Devonshire, a self-confessed 'acceleration addict', will advise us how to find a way to get the pace right for us in this ever-accelerating world. Sophie will be preceded by Carly Ward of The Entrepreneurial Education Group (Chilterns MS Centre Gold Corporate Friend), who will speak for a few minutes about how she set up her first business at just 19 years old.
Giving – without making a financial donation! We are always grateful to receive gifts that will save us money or can be raffled or auctioned to raise money. We love to accept companies’ donations of time and expertise. We also love to raise awareness of MS and the Chilterns MS Centre in companies’ brochures.
There are many payroll giving agencies that process employees' payments to charity on a company’s behalf, in many cases this doesn’t cost the employer anything and is a great way to show the outside world.
