Bury Hospice is launching their ‘Corporate Challenge’ where they want businesses to compete against each other and use their fundraising and business skills to turn £50 into whatever they can!
They are looking for 20 companies in Bury and the surrounding area to take part – and the Millgate Shopping Centre along with Maker Industrial Ltd have provided the £50 for each business to kick it off.
The Millgate Centre and Maker Industrial Ltd, a toll manufacturer and custom blending operation, are proud supporters of Bury Hospice and they want to see their money turned into thousands of pounds to help Bury Hospice, on Rochdale Old Road, provide the best services for the community of Bury, helping people cope with life-limiting illnesses in the hospice as well as their Hospice at Home and day care services.
The Corporate Challenge is over a five month period from June 5th 2017 to October 27th 2017 and the idea is to turn the initial £50 into as much as companies can – whether it’s through a cake-off, ‘fun’ jumper days, raffles – the more imaginative the better!
In turn, Bury Hospice will promote each business through their social media channel, website and newsletter and there will be a leaderboard every month – it will be competitive.
“We can’t wait to see what imaginative fundraising ideas our companies come up with,” said Bury Hospice fundraiser Michelle King.
“It’s a great chance for businesses to hold fun events, help a charity and also show their entrepreneurial spirit by going head-to-head against each other – all friendly rivalry of course!
“And we are thankful to our strong supporters, the Millgate Shopping Centre and Maker Industrial Ltd, who have sponsored our Corporate Challenge. We couldn’t do it without them.”
There will be an awards ceremony in November to announce the category winners and overall winner.
