A new apprentice style challenge has been launched by a children’s hospice in a bid to raise £100,000.

‘Hundreds to Thousands’ is for local businesses big or small, to become involved and help to raise cash for the Forget Me Not Children’s Hospice in a unique way.

Seven business are in place to take on the challenge, HSBC Plc, Barclays, Kirklees College, Pinset Masons, collaboration between Simply Biz, Lindley Group and Kirklees Stadium and Josh Fenton Glynn, Labour’s candidate for the Calder Valley.

Each business team has been given a seed fund of £500 and challenged to turn this into £5,000 for the charity over the three month period November to January. The teams will have to think creatively and be entrepreneurial in how they achieve the target.

Liz Paver, head of corporate partnerships at the hospice said: “This is a challenge that will test even the best business brains and they will need to draw upon all their business acumen and negotiation skills working together as a team. Hundreds to Thousands will give businesses the opportunity to compete against the best in their region.”
