On Monday the 9th October, we visited The Arthur Rank Hospice to take part in their accumulator challenge. The whole challenge is in aid of raising as much money as possible for the charity, with just £50 to spend. Arm kindly donated £50 to each business taking part. Staff from The Arthur Rank Hospice handed out the money and collection pots, followed by a speech.
The Arthur Rank Hospice Charity supports people in Cambridgeshire who are living with life-limiting illness. To supplement the NHS contribution, the Charity are required to raise £285 million annually to fund the additional services provided by the Hospice.
Our first idea in aid of raising some money was a good old fashioned swear box. We are charging 10p a swear for every member of staff who slips a swear word out in the office!
We also put together some hampers to raffle off at our Gala event on Friday 20th October. Members of staff from Arthur Rank joined us at the gala where we raised £341! All the funds from raffle are going straight into our fundraising pot.
