A Great Office Bake Off is just one of the tasty events Organic Money intends to stage during the fundraising in the East Lancashire Hospice Corporate Challenge 2018.
The hospice is close to the hearts of the Organic team. Apart from the parent company Organic Insurance sponsoring the challenge, a couple of the Organic Money team have personal experiences of the fantastic work carried out at the hospice.
Mortgage adviser and team organiser Mark Chadwick said: “Two of our staff have experienced first-hand with their immediate family the amazing care that East Lancashire Hospice provides. It has always been their aim to help the hospice in some way as a small thank-you for the individual and family support that was provided by the hospice and its team.”
Organic Money was established in May, 2016, ande provides a whole-of-market mortgage service. It serves a variety of clients ranging from first-time buyers, remortgages, hoem-movers, buy-to-let and commercial mortgages.
It is based in the new Cathedral Square in Blackburn and employs 17 staff members all of whom will be taking part in some shape or form in the corporate challenge events.
Other ideas for the challenge include a dress down day when staff can even turn up at the office in their PJs! The office also plans to have a quiz night and raffle when business contacts will be invited to attend and treat the occasion as a networking event.
The target of £1,000 will also be supported by a race night and corporate sports day.
Mark said: “As a growing business in the area Organic Money has included in its mission to help and support the local community. Secondary to this, as new staff join the company, employee engagement is at the heart of developing and motivating a happy workforce.
“Participating in the corporate challenge will help nurture this sense of togetherness within the company."
