Corporate Challenge 2018
Calling all local companies: Corporate Challenge
is back and it’s bigger and better than ever.
Starting June 1st they have four months to turn a £50 starter fund into as much as they can. In the past two years companies have come up with some fantastic fundraising ideas from sky dives to bake-offs and from family fun days to all you can eat competitions.
Christina Cope said: “We'd like over 30 companies to take part. Pendleside celebrates its 30th anniversary this year and we are hoping to smash our previous Corporate Challenge total to mark this important milestone.”
Last year’s Corporate Challenge raised an amazing £97,016; As well as raising pounds, teams can earn extra money by us soft crediting them - by getting involved in volunteering at the hospice, by taking part in our big events such as Colour Dash and by donating goods for our shops.
Christina said: “We wanted Corporate Challenge to evolve and to offer more opportunities for participants to get involved in other ways. It is tremendous fun and a really rewarding way of helping the hospice – some previous participants say it’s the best team building they have ever done, and it’s certainly good for companies with loads of energy and ideas.”
As in previous years, each £50 starter fund has been donated by a generous sponsor, so that every penny raised will go direct to patient care.
Here is some information from last year's Corporate Challenge
Our final Corporate Challenge Leader Board was published on Friday 20th October with a fantastic total figure raised of £97,016.66!
The total raised was announced at our Awards Event held at Burnley Mechanics on Thursday 19th October. More than 170 people joined us to celebrate the success of Corporate Challenge and saw ACDC crowned Overall Champions and Burnley and Pendle Slimming World won the trophy for most raised with the fantastic amount of £26,311.18. The winners in the other categories are listed below.
A big thank you to Charter Walk Shopping Centre, who sponsor Corporate Challenge.
