Your Challenge (should you choose to accept it)
We want small businesses (or individuals) to send us a pledge to raise £100 in the next year. Not much. Possibly a couple of small events such as a coffee morning, a bake sale, children’s tea party, perhaps, or a small fun run. Easy. Not much of a challenge, you might say. Aha! Read on..
The challenge part is that we also want you to use your business network, and/or family and friends, to find nine partners who will pledge to match your commitment. This will raise £1,000 per team of partners. Or you could try five partners raising £200 each, or twenty raising £50 each.. or whatever configuration that works for you and will get your team to £1,000!
It’s a really useful way to build relationships and £1,000 is a usable amount of money that will go a long way to meeting the needs of many of the projects we support, giving a lot of people a hand up out of their difficulties.
