Calling all local businesses – Could you take on our £50 Challenge?

Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to find as many interesting and innovative ways to turn £50 in to as much money as possible for St Luke’s Hospice.

Following this, you will have from Thursday 1st June through to Saturday 30th September to use your business acumen and innovation skills to grow the £50 seed funding into a healthy profit for the Hospice.

You could run fundraising events at work, invest it on the stock market, hold a raffle, auction items, set sporting challenges or organise social activities to raise the money. In fact, you can do absolutely anything you like (as long as it’s legal!) We will be on hand throughout the whole process with helpful hints, tips and support along the way to make this as easy for you as possible.

The challenge will close with a presentation evening where we will celebrate the success of all those involved. Each team will be given a participation certificate and special recognition will be awarded to teams for ‘Most innovative idea’ and ‘Most money raised’ amongst others.

No matter the size of your company, you can take part and by doing so, you will help St Luke’s Hospice to continue to provide its services, free of charge to the people of Basildon, Billericay, Wickford and Thurrock. So don’t miss out on this brilliant opportunity to get involved in the challenge this year!
