Corporate Challenge 2018

Calling all local companies to join in our Corporate Challenge

Our  Corporate Challenge is well under way  it started on June 1st and 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 are delighted to have so many businesses sign up to our third Corporate Challenge. We hoped to get 30 businesses on-board, so to have 41 signed up so is just incredible!! "

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.
