● COULD you go head-to-head in the 2018 Wil­low Wood Cor­po­rate Chal­lenge?

Could you make a real dif­fer­ence to your com­mu­nity by tak­ing an ini­tial starter sum and mak­ing it grow?

You would be rais­ing funds for your lo­cal hos­pice, build­ing team spirit in your work­force, net­work­ing with other lo­cal busi­nesses and hav­ing fun at the same time.

We’re look­ing for teams and in­di­vid­u­als to join us and show just how en­ter­pris­ing they can be.

Each team will be given a nest egg of £50 to use in in­ge­nious ways to raise funds for the hos­pice.

As Elaine Mc­Connell, the event or­gan­iser, ex­plains: “The only limit is your imag­i­na­tion – pro­vided, of course, your ideas are le­gal and eth­i­cal!

“I know there are some great busi­ness brains out in Tame­side and Glossop, and we’d love them to take up the chal­lenge of rais­ing funds in what­ever way they can.

“They’ll have three months, start­ing on July 1 un­til the awards cer­e­mony in Oc­to­ber, to show us just how re­source­ful they can be.” If you’d like to find out more, join Elaine for break­fast at 8am on Fri­day, April 27, at Wil­low Wood. Just ring her on 0161 330 7788 to book your place. Es­tab­lished 1973 COM­POS­ITE
