Big Corporate Shake Up

Workplace volunteering at the Edinburgh Fringe

We’re excited to announce the return of the Big Corporate Shake Up, Edinburgh’s best workplace challenge during the Fringe.

The challenge

Waverley Care is the proud charity partner at The Pleasance and we’d love you to join us at our biggest fundraising event of the year.

Workplace teams (of up to 8) will collect as many donations from generous audience members as they can, competing to win the coveted Shake Up trophy and help us get to zero new HIV transmissions by 2030!


Big benefits

You’ll develop skills with your colleagues as you plan your winning strategy and practice your pitches. You’ll meet new people, generate positive PR for your workplace and experience the festival excitement within your team. And there’s more, you’ll also receive complimentary passes to shows at The Pleasance and will be helping Waverley Care be there for anyone in Scotland affected by HIV and hepatitis.

No experience in volunteering or bucket shaking is necessary as we provide you with t-shirts, buckets, contactless donation devices and full training. Just come along with enthusiasm and a great attitude.

The Big Corporate Shake-up was a fantastic event and we were thrilled to be a part of it and pleased to be able to double what we raised through workplace match funding. We’re already thinking about how we can beat our record next year.
