We have this week opened entries into our £50 Challenge fundraising drive.

Offering schools, businesses or groups of any kind the opportunity to develop team spirit and entrepreneurial flair by seeing how much they can grow a £50 investment in just 50 days.

The first wave of budding business people will be starting their challenge on the 6th March with a finishing date of 24th April and hospice fundraiser, Bekki Fardoe said: “Starting with an initial £50 investment from ourselves, we encourage and support groups to use their money to fundraise for us by hosting an event or even signing-up to a sponsored sporting challenge to raise as much as possible for local children and families.

“These events could be anything from a coffee morning to a quiz night that can involve your customers, staff or families or even using the investment to develop a new product.

“It’s also a wonderful way to fulfil corporate and social responsibilities and show your community you are passionate about making a difference.”

What could your efforts fund?

Examples of what your event and multiplied £50 could raise are:

  • £100 could fund a support session for bereaved parents
  • £500 could fund an action packed sibling support day for brothers and sisters of children in our care
  • £1,500 could fund 24hrs of respite care or crisis care for a seriously ill child

Our fundraisers will fully support all the teams who sign up and can provide branded materials and even ideas for events.
