Get Involved


Indi-Fundraisers are amazing, kind people, just like you, who want to ‘independently’ donate or raise money. Indi-Fundraisers are our army of people or groups that raise thousands of pounds for us every year. From one-off donations and coffee mornings to larger organised events in our honour and sponsored challenges.

For more inspiration read our blog on Faith’s Spooky Halloween night swim in The Royal Docks in London or email us for your FREE fundraising pack!

With life moving in very different ways now, we recognise that more of you are taking up challenges to push yourselves physically and mentally.

From a Marathon to Foulness Bike Ride and beyond, why not sign up for your next goal and use the opportunity to raise money for Packed with Smiles? Email us to tell us more about how you want to support us!

Corporate Fundraising

Businesses who partner with local causes demonstrate awareness of the community around them. There are many ways to partner with PWS; employee fundraising, donating prizes or as your ‘Charity of the Year’.

You’ll be able to engage with us at all levels and we always work in partnership to give something back. From team building at one of our parcel packing days to marketing and press connections, meaningful partnerships is something we know how to do!

Read our blog Volunteers Giving Back to see the fun packed, productive day Howden Group Holdings had with us or email us for more info.

Packed with Smiles is a small, growing charity operating in the Southend area with a real passion for helping every child go to school feeling equal and ready to fulfil their full potential.  Having the right school uniform is a critical part of this wish.  It helps children to focus on learning and having fun rather than worrying about fitting in.

If this mission resonates with you and you have some time why not join as a trustee?  It is a voluntary role, needing 4-6 hours a month and we'd appreciate applications from people with a wide range of skills such as admin, financial, creative, fund-raising - anything really!!!

Send us a message via and we will follow up to help you understand more about what we do and what's involved.  It will be great to have more people join our team as we grow and help shape the future of more local children.
