Pendleside’s annual Corporate Challenge last year raised £97,016.66, with the hopes for 2018 being firmly set on blowing that incredible total out of the water.
More than 40 local businesses took on the challenge this year, tasked with turning £50 into as much money as possible through various fundraising activities and events of their own imagining.
Making A Difference In The Local Community
This year, Pendleside Hospice celebrated their 30th anniversary. Over the course of the past 30 years, the Hospice has touched the lives of almost every person in the Burnley and Pendle area through the incredible care they provide to those with life-limiting illnesses and their loved ones.
Through the fundraising done by members within this local community and by the 42 businesses taking part in the 2018 Corporate Challenge, it’s hoped Pendleside can continue to make a difference for another 30 years.

Over the course of the evening, attendees experienced videos detailing the stories of families whose loved ones accessed the services of Pendleside, a charity auction, speeches from winners of the awards and amazing food. The dress code for the evening was ‘Dress to Impress’ and everyone looked dazzling.

Essentially doubling their total of last year, Slimming World scooped up the award for raising the most money for the third year in a row, having generated £28,000 in aid of Pendleside! Congratulations to all of the winners on the night but all of the businesses that took part this year can be extremely proud of their efforts.
