Business Challenge



We’re looking for local businesses of all sizes to take part in this year’s Business Challenge and help raise funds for Rossendale Hospice.  

Each company taking part will receive £50 to get them started. Businesses will then have 3 months to raise as much as they can within that time period. The challenge starts on 1st July 2019 and runs until 1st October 2019.

This challenge will put you or your team’s entrepreneurial skills to the test, develop team building, increase networking opportunities and help support your local hospice. 

There will be valuable advertising opportunities to be gained by participating in this challenge from marketing your own business as well as the activities you are undertaking.

This event is in partnership with Valley at Work and the Rossendale Business Awards. The Awards Night will be held at the R Awards on Wednesday 4th December 2019. 

There are awards up for grabs, so make every penny count! Awards are given for more than just how much money is raised.

Investment Champion: the business which raises the most amount of profit.
