AN afternoon reception helped to launch Primrose Hospice’s Corporate Challenge at The Orangery in Ipsley last week.
Staff from businesses across Bromsgrove and Redditch met their competitors and listened to inspiring speeches from Primrose Hospice’s chief operations officer Angélique Dalton and social media expert James Vincent from Hot Source Creative.
The teams will now compete to raise the most money to help people with life-limiting illnesses after being given a £50 starter grant.
They have 80 days to get creative with their fundraising and a leader-board will be released every two weeks sharing who is topping the chart.
Also up for grabs are five awards to be presented to the winners at the Primrose Ball on Friday, September 27.
Primrose Hospice’s third annual ball will be held at the Chateau Impney Hotel, entertaining up to 500 guests with a night of food and amazing entertainment.
Amy Flemming, fundraiser at Primrose Hospice said: “We know that the businesses who are taking part have some incredible ideas to turn their £50 starter grant into a bigger donation for the hospice.
“It’s going to be great to see what they get up to.”
