Employees from Leamington and Warwick businesses have helped to raise a record-breaking £38,922 in The Myton Hospices’ Take 50 Challenge. Now in its fifth year, the challenge has raised almost £160,000 for the charity.
As well as being overall sponsors, Woodland Grange hosted an awards dinner on 21st May, attended by over 100 participants. The Myton Hospices Take 50 Challenge puts companies’ business skills to the test by challenging them to turn £50 into as much money as possible for the charity in fifty days.
A total of 30 teams from across Coventry and Warwickshire took part in the challenge, with IRESS taking the prize for the most money raised with a total of £5,151.30.
Hannah Morris, Myton’s corporate fundraising development manager, said: “It’s been an amazing year for Take 50. We’re delighted for the winning teams but also for every team that took part. They’ve contributed to the fantastic total. They’ve all put in so much effort and we hope they’ll take part again next year. A big thank you to Woodland Grange for sponsoring the event and for making the awards night so memorable.”
