As you all know by now, we love getting involved with new things and raising money for special causes! So when we received our invitation to join in the Cambridge Corporate Charity Challenge 2013 on 15th November, we decided to volunteer ourselves…gulp!
The aim of the event, run by Domino and the Menzies Hotel, is to “bring local business together for a friendly competition to have fun and raise lots of money for BBC Children In Need”. A perk of signing up is getting a free members pass for the ‘Menzies Waves Health and Leisure Club’ so we’d best start training!
Children in Need provides grants to projects in the UK which focus on children and young people who are disadvantaged. They are the UK’s BBC corporate charity so are local to people in all corners of the country and support small and large organisations which empower children and extend their life choices.
The Annual Appeal show of entertainment on BBC One is on the evening of the Challenge and we’re already looking forward to collapsing on the sofa and enjoying the show knowing we’ve done our bit!
Our brave volunteers taking part in the Challenge are Adrian Williams, Gary Young, James Seymour, Bobbie Johnson, Clare Elliott and Lyn Gentry.
If you can’t enter a team, maybe your company can still help by sponsoring us on our JustGiving page: http://www.justgiving.com/CambridgeCorporateCharityChallenge or come along and support us on the day!
