The Hospice’s Business Partnerships Team Leader Sarah Archer explained: “St Elizabeth Hospice costs millions of pounds a year to run and we rely on fundraising and donations from local businesses and the wider community.
“We are always trying to come up with imaginative and simple ways to engage with corporate organisations. Our first Accumulator Challenge earlier this year was very popular, raising £9,000. So we have decided to organise a second challenge which starts in September. We would love to hear from any businesses who would like to join in – there is plenty of scope for having fun and coming up with original ways to raise money.
“It is also an ideal opportunity to encourage teamwork, develop creativity and boost morale amongst staff and compete against other businesses in a fun way.”
The challenge will officially be launched on September 11 when companies will be given their £50. At the end of the three months there will an awards and Thank You evening and a profile of the winning organisation published in Business East Monthly.
