A commercial law firm will reach out to clients as well as calling on their own staff in their bid to win the East Lancashire 2018 Corporate Challenge.
Taylors Solicitors, of Rawlings House, Exchange St, Blackburn, will also be hoping its colleagues in the firm’s Manchester office will also lend a hand in raising a substantial amount of money for the hospice.
Marketing co-ordinator Aimee Cockley said: “We have a few sporty types in Manchester who often come over to work in Blackburn so I am sure we will be calling on them to compete in any sponsored 5k, 10k or half marathons we decide to enter! We will also be looking to take part in things like sponsored bike rides, football matches, walks and other sporting events.”
Aimee, who is leading the Taylors’ corporate challenge, added: “we were last minute entrants to the Corporate Challenge so our next step is to form a charity committee and work out exactly what we can do!”
“Our aim will be to raise as much as possible and hopefully we will be challenging for a top spot at the end of the challenge.”
“We may get some of the team and their families and friends to enter the hospice organised events like the Bubble Rush and the Ribble Valley Pub Walk as well as staging dress down days and bake off competitions in the office.”
When managing partner Elaine Hurn put the idea of entering the corporate challenge to the staff they were all excited at the prospect and believed it was a fantastic cause for which to raise money.
Aimee said: “I’m sure we will come up with some amazing ideas and while as there are only 30 of us across the two offices we will also be reaching out for clients to help donate to our efforts. We can’t wait to get going!”
