M65Jobsearch along with 32 other companies have signed up for this year’s Pendleside Hospice Corporate Challenge.
The challenge sees businesses compete to raise money for Pendleside Hospice after an initial £50 given to them by the hospice. Its then up to the companies involved to turn that into as much money as possible in a four month period (1st June-30th September).
Mark Wiggan our MD said “Since M65Jobsearch was formed from M65 Recruitment and JobSearch last year we’ve been warmly welcomed by the people and businesses of Burnley and Pendle and we wanted to do something to give back to the community. The Corporate Challenge is such a great initiative by the hospice we thought this would be the ideal way to raise some money and have fun at the same time.
“Everyone from Pendle knows the great work that the hospice does. Most of us have at some point experienced friends or family with life-limiting illnesses and it’s both humbling and inspiring to see the amazing support that is provided by the hospice.”
Christina Cope, from Pendleside Hospice, added: “We’re really grateful to have so many local businesses like M65Jobsearch taking part in the challenge. The Corporate Challenge has grown a lot since we first came up with the idea in 2015 and it’s very encouraging and gratifying to see it become a regular fixture in the diaries of so many companies as well as seeing new companies getting involved every year like M65Jobsearch. The hospice has to raise over 3million pounds a year from donations in order to continue our work, so initiatives like the Corporate Challenge are vital to us”.
Last year’s Challenge raised over £157,000 and saw 42 companies from Burnley and Pendle participate.
