Take part in our Franklins £40 challenge

Grow your money and support a great cause

3rd May – 28th June

Willen Hospice is excited to announce that it is taking part in the Franklins £40 Accumulator Challenge.

The challenge is being hosted by Franklins Solicitors, who have chosen £40 to celebrate their 40th anniversary.

How does it work?

Form a team with your colleagues and we’ll give you £40 to start you off! Come up with fundraising ideas to make as much money as you can for Willen Hospice. The team that ‘grows’ the most money wins over the eight week challenge.

Who can enter

Any local business that wishes to form a team, fundraise as a company, match-fund their colleagues or find their own a unique (but legal) way to increase the initial amount of £40!

Nigel Birch, Head of Marketing at Willen Hospice said “We’re thrilled to see this challenge back on the calendar for our business community to be part of. In the past, teams have excelled at coming up with great ideas – from curry nights and bake-offs to hosting yoga classes to raise funds.

It’s the perfect opportunity for companies who want to support us, to do something fun yet incredibly meaningful as part of a team.  We’re looking forward to seeing who vies for top spot on the leaderboard.”

Ways to fundraise

Here are just a few ideas to get you started.

• Bake off
• Afternoon tea
• Office tuck shop
• Wine tasting
• Sponsored walk
• Quiz night
• Office bingo
• Guess the number of items in a jar
• Workplace treasure hunt
• Wear casual clothes to work
• Car washing
• Hair cut or beard shaving
• Jubilee party

Anyone who wishes to take part will be supported by the Willen Hospice corporate team. Collection pots, buckets, banners and balloons can be requested to promote Willen Hospice at fundraising events. Digital banners and posters will also be available to spread the news on social media.
