The challenge involves 25 companies competing against each other to raise as much money as possible within a 6-month period. Participating companies will be given £50 to kickstart their fundraising, thanks to Organic Insurance who are once again the headline sponsor of the challenge.
The challenge will run from the 1st of April until the 30th of September, with the winners announced in October at an awards ceremony. Business support is key to the hospice as it has to raise £3.7 million pounds a year to keep its doors open.
East Lancashire Hospice provides a variety of care services to patients with life limiting illnesses from Blackburn, Darwen, Accrington and Clitheroe. Services include an inpatient unit, end of life care, physiotherapy, counselling and support for the patients’ families. East Lancashire Hospice is a great cause which is close to many hearts in the community who have had family members lovingly cared for at the hospice.
