20 days comes to an end and raises a fantastic £8000

Tue, November 10th, 2015

Our 20 days Business challenge has come to an end and raised a fantastic £8500.

At the start of 2015 Zoë’s Place Baby Hospice launched an initiative to celebrate their 20th year providing high quality nursing respite and palliative care to local families in the North West. The businesses involved with the event have collectively raised £8,000. This is a fantastic amount and the celebration evening held at Revolution Albert Dock on Tuesday 27 October was held to thank the businesses involved.

The project was designed to challenge businesses and test their entrepreneurial skills. A local philanthropist donated £250 per team that signed up as a starting point to raise as much money as possible. A total of seven teams signed up from Barclays x 2, H & T Pawnbrokers, Media and Digital, Ryder Architecture, Royal Sun Alliance and Santander. They took part in a variety of fundraising activities including an Easter Egg Stall, Climbing Snowdon and delivering breakfast to local businesses to name just a few. Several events also took place including a rock night and an 80’s night. All in all the teams had great fun raising money for our great cause.

The winners were Royal Sun Alliance and they were presented with their winning certificate and prize donated by Wild Goose Treasure Hunts for the whole team to take part in an interactive treasure hunt around the city. Well done to all.

Samantha Lee, Corporate and Events Fundraising Officer suggests ‘Business involvement in charity is incredibly rewarding for employees and makes a huge difference to our charity. We are so grateful to all the organisations that took part in this initiative.’
