The £50 Challenge for St Francis Hospice Raises £468 from F Barnes

We were delighted to present St Francis Hospice with our cheque for £468 yesterday. Katrina Lewis and Joanne Druce met with Tom Murtagh of the Hospice at the Barry Hearn room as he is a Patron of the Hospice and founder member of the Business Alliance Group which we have been a part of from the outset.

The money raised was part of the £50 challenge which started in January of this year. The idea being to raise as much as you can within a certain time from a £50 given to you by the Hospice. We held a Wine & Cheese evening and invited guests to enter our raffle for a luxury hamper and two free 'Wills'. 

The Wills were won by Steven Roach of Phoenix FM and he has donated them back to us to auction to help raise more money for the lovely charity.

If you wish to bid on the opportunity of winning the free Wills worth £360 we would invite you to visit our Facebook link to bid.

Highest bidder as of 9am Friday March 22nd will win. 

An excellent idea and we simply had to a part of it.
