Posted 12 February 2019 | 0 Comments

The Hospice of the Good Shepherd is challenging 30 businesses to get involved in the Corporate Challenge for its 30th anniversary to help raise vital funds for the Hospice.  For further information, please click here https://youtu.be/4kahbSK6cqM

The Hospice will give businesses £50 on 1st April and challenge them to be creative in turning it into much more by 30th June.

Abi Smith, Corporate and Major Donor Manager, said, “Whether you would like to challenge the office to reach their full potential, or use this as a team building exercise, the Corporate Challenge is a great way to engage your team whilst raising funds for your local Hospice!”

“We have a few fundraising suggestions that do really well like dress down days, bake sales, raffles, gala evenings, bag packing, sky dives and bake-offs. You can also enter colleagues into one of the Hospice’s organised events such as the Chester Sparkle Walk or a Parachute Jump.”

Everyone who takes part will be invited to a launch breakfast held on 28th March at the Hospice and a finale dinner on 18th July where a series of awards will be handed out.

We are delighted that Chamber members Black Mango, Chester Running Tours and Recycling UK Ltd  are taking part in the Challenge.

Now in its thirtieth year, the Hospice of the Good Shepherd has an annual running cost of £4 million where less than a third comes from government funding. The remainder is generated through fundraising, donations, events and corporate partnerships.
