Let the challenge begin!

We’re delighted to be working with 11 top companies within our catchment area as they take on the challenge to grow their £20 start-up fund as much as they can from October 1st 2020 – 31st January 2021.

Although our launch event may have been virtual this year, it was great to meet the participating companies who are so generously supporting The Forever Friends Appeal. We’ve provided our companies with a fundraising pack, full of great ideas to kick the challenge off in style. We’ve even included lots of digital branding, so colleagues, suppliers and customers can get involved whether they’re working in or out of the office.

Our companies will be provided with a monthly leader board to see who’s coming out on top (and who they need to beat) as well as an inspiration email at the end of each month, with a few extra fundraising ideas for the month ahead.

Thank you to our participating companies for taking part – let the challenge begin!
