News: Woodside Venue takes on the ‘Take 50 Challenge’ for Myton Hospice
4 Apr 2013
For the third year running, employees at Sundial Group's Woodside meeting venue in Warwickshire will be taking on the Myton Hospice ‘Take 50 Challenge' this spring.
The challenge is to raise as much money as possible over 50 days, starting with just £50, through whatever means necessary.
Just one of many local businesses taking part, Woodside will be hosting a variety of sponsored events involving employees, customers, friends and family, including: car washes, ‘Wear it red' for Myton days, cake sales, ‘Guess the baby' competition and a sponsored 244 mile race.
Woodside's biggest fundraising event this year is the 244 mile race, which represents the number of miles between Sundial Group's three venues based in Warwickshire, Northamptonshire and Surrey. The Woodside team have tasked themselves with clocking up these miles between them through swimming, running, walking and cycling over the course of one week from Monday 8 April to Monday 14 April, in order to raise money through sponsorship.
Myton Hospice provides specialist palliative care for the people of Coventry and Warwickshire from its three hospice sites in Warwick, Rugby and Coventry. At its unit in local Warwick, patients are provided with specialist care by teams of nurses, doctors and other healthcare professionals to help support them and their families, free of charge.
The Hospice is a registered charity and receives only a small proportion of its funding from the NHS. It relies on donations and legacies to help raise the millions that are needed every year for its care to continue. Woodside is proud to be a local supporter.
