Barnstaple branch comes out on top of fundraising challenge

Our Barnstaple branch came out on top of a company-wide fundraising event on Thursday 31st January by receiving donations totalling £538.

All 20 branches went head-to-head to see which could raise the most amount of money as part of Children's Hospice South West's £50 Challenge and raised a fantastic £2,568 in total.

In addition to holding a breakfast morning and power tool raffle, the Barnstaple team also asked people to make a donation to guess how many people they could fit into a small RGB van.

Lee Kift, Branch Manager at RGB Barnstaple, commented:

"The £50 Challenge is a fantastic idea and we're delighted to be the RGB branch that raised the most, but well done to every branch for helping to generate a fantastic total to pass on to the hospice. A huge thank you to everyone that supported the event and made a donation."

Our Tiverton branch came second in the challenge raising £254, and the Head Office team came third raising £214.


CHSW Corporate Partnerships Fundraiser Mhairi Bass-Carruthers said:

"Huge thanks to everyone at RGB for taking on our £50 Challenge with such enthusiasm and creativity – it's been fantastic to see the different fundraising ideas across the 20 branches.

"RGB is the first company to take on our £50 Challenge in 2019 and they have definitely set the standard – if there are any more companies who'd like a shot at knocking them off the top of this year's leader board, please get in touch.

"The £50 Challenge is open to all businesses and is a great way for staff to put their entrepreneurial skills to the test and promote some healthy work-based competition. And of course, it's a brilliant way for businesses to support and contribute to the work that CHSW does to help families of children with life-limiting conditions across the South West."
