Firms urged to rise to £50 charity challenge

Nov 25, 2018

The Franklins £50 Challenge throws down the gauntlet to companies to use their entrepreneurial skills to generate cash for the hospice.

The challenge will begin in January, with each team receiving £50 from organisers Franklins Solicitors. Each team will have eight weeks to invest and reinvest that money to raise as much as possible.

Willen Hospice’s corporate fundraiser Amy Shaw said: “In 2018, teams raised an incredible £32,000 for the hospice through quiz nights, bake sales, lunchtime yoga and dress down days.

"We celebrated their achievements at an awards ceremony where the challenge champions were crowned and prizes awarded for best team name and most creative fundraising.“

Willen Hospice is inviting teams from local businesses to take part in the 2019 Franklins Challenge to make this year’s challenge even bigger and better. The Hospice needs to raise £9 every minute of the year to continue to provide their vital services to those living with a terminal illness and can’t do this without support from the local community.

To take part in the Franklins £50 Challenge, call the Willen Hospice corporate fundraising team on 01908 303066.
