Corporate Challenge

Six companies have already signed up to the East Cheshire Hospice Corporate Challenge.

Their aim will be to invest a £100 start-up loan and make as much profit as possible during May.

The profit will be donated to the Hospice and used directly to help care for patients with life-limiting illnesses, their families and carers.

Scientific communications agency Bioscript will be defending their title won last year when they made a healthy £2,000 profit.

Competing against them so far are Chess ICT, Pan European Networks, McCann Medical, Ashfield Healthcare and Context Public Relations.

It is not too late to enter and for more details go to eastcheshirehospice.org.uk/corporate-challenge or contact the Hospice’s Corporate Relationships Manager Kate Bowmar on 01625 433477 or kbowmar@echospice.org.uk.

Kate said: “Fundraising is great way for employees to gain new skills, develop confidence and give something back.

“Obviously, it has to be legal but it’s a chance to use your imagination and business brain to make money grow and at the same time help our patients.”

A gala awards evening will be held at The Colony HQ in Wilmslow on Thursday, June 6, when the winners will be announced.

David Pollock, CEO and founder of telecoms provider Chess, said: “It’s important for a modern business  to play our part in the wider community and the Hospice does  phenomenal work looking after people at end of life.

“The Corporate Challenge is great for employee engagement and staff want to participate. Our staff have jumped out of planes, baked cakes, run 10ks and dressed up in silly clothes.

“It binds them and their community together and helps their business.”
