Oakhaven Hospice launches new challenge to raise £30,000 from corporate sponsorship
A NEW corporate initiative has been launched to raise £30,000 for Oakhaven Hospice in its 30th year.
To mark the milestone, the hospice has kicked off the Beaverbrook 30 for 30 Challenge for local firms.
It involves businesses turning £100 into a minimum of £1,000 through fundraising by the end of March 2023.
The initiative, which is funded by the Beaverbrook Foundation, was launched last week with a drinks reception at the Coates Centre in the grounds of the hospice. The foundation has been funding the initiative – previously known as the £100 Challenge – since 2016.
It has helped to raise £50,000 for the hospice’s neighbours project, which currently provides support to more than 50 clients in their own homes.
Peter Robertson from DEOS Group Ltd was the first participant to sign up to the challenge and received his £100 from Lord Beaverbrook himself.
Corporate fundraising manager Natalie Hutchins said: “It is a real privilege to re-launch this challenge for our 30th anniversary.
“It is a great way to engage local businesses with the hospice and raise funds for a service that is run entirely on voluntary income but provides such a crucial service to our clients in their own homes.”
