Can you take on the £50 Challenge?!
Published to Other News on Jul 26, 2017
Our first challenger has collected his £50 from sponsors, Harewood Associates, and is raring to go for the £50 Challenge this October!
Javed Ali is the owner of Doodah Embroidery, a Bolton based business supplying embroidery and print on garments, and he spoke to us about why he is taking part in the £50 Challenge:
"I wanted to help a great cause before I'm the one asking for
their help; why support a charity only after they have benefited you? Bolton as
a whole is compassionate and generous.
Javed's business has an inspirational background as he learnt his skill and gained experience whilst inside prison. With the help of The Prince’s Trust and the staff at HMYOI Deerbolt, Javed worked hard to set up Doodah Embroidery and is now using his business skills to help a good cause.
The £50 Challenge is looking for 25 challengers which can be comprised of teams, business colleagues, sports clubs, schools, pubs, friend groups etc. to take £50 cash kindly donated by Harewood Associates and then throughout October do anything possible to make the biggest profit possible for Bolton Hospice - as long as it is safe and legal to do so! Previous challengers have held auctions, bake sales, fancy dress competitions, beard shaving, Halloween events and even a pyjama pub crawl!
So if you think you will be able to challenge Javed, contact us to find out how to collect your £50 and we will see you at the launch event on 12th September!
