We are calling out to all businesses, schools and community groups to take part in our £100 challenge. Challengers will receive £100 and you will be given 6 months to turn it into as much money as possible. How this is done is completely up to you. The sky’s the limit when it comes to fundraising.
Trophies will be awarded for the most creative, team motivating and wackiest ideas. If this sounds like something you would like to take part in please contact our Community and Corporate fundraiser on 01590 613036.
