About us Latest updates Budding Entrepreneurs Join £50 Challenge On Thursday 30th March, Farleigh Hospice launched the 2017 £50 Challenge, sponsored by Birkett Long Solicitors. 69 enterprising individuals and groups were presented a £50 note by Councillor Linda Denston, Deputy Mayor of Chelmsford, and have now been given 12 weeks to turn that amount into as much money as possible for Farleigh Hospice. For the challengers to succeed, they will need to use every last shred of their imagination, with the best ideas often being creative, fun, and sometimes even a little bit odd! This is the 5th year that the event has taken place, with the campaign raising over £120,000 to date, and we are hoping for another record year. You can track this year’s challengers online – search #Farleigh50 to see what they’re up to! Farleigh Hospice would like to thank Birkett Long Solicitors for supplying the £50 notes for each participant, and everyone who is taking part in this year’s event: A R C Promotions Ltd Abbey Group And Sew on Fabrics Anglia Ruskin University Aston Barclay Chelmsford Ltd Aston Scott Atkins Global Barclays Bank PLC, Witham Baverstocks Chartered Accountants Benton Hall Golf Club Berkeley and Wharf BNI Excelsior Boddingtons Electrical Ltd Braintree College Braintree College Team 2 Braintree College Team 3 Civi Care East Colchester Institute Concept Building Solutions (Essex) Creative Quills Danbury Fencing Ltd E J Coombs Solicitors E2V Technologies Elwell Taylor Ltd Essex Embroidery & Print Essexy Hair Fast Signs, Chelmsford Fisher Jones Greenwood LLP Fisk Fire Group GFK NOP Operations Halifax Bank, Chelmsford Handelsbanken, Chelmsford Hill & Abbott Solicitors ICEX Ltd Ignite Business Improve Your Life Karen Smith Art Kelly Turkey Farms Ltd Kempco Stationers Leanne Perilly Lioness Club, Witham and district Lloyds Bank Plc, Chelmsford Lloyds Signature & Mandate Database Unit Lopez Landa Lottie & Jakes Scrumptious Cakes Made by Plumb Millins of Tiptree Munro Building Services Ltd Nando’s, Chelmsford Options Hairdressing Limited Pizza Hut, Braintree Prettys Solicitors Recycle Your IT Red Stack Tech Rickard Luckin Ltd Secret Hamper Silhouette du Barry Simply Marketing Spectrum Merchandising Stallion Accountancy Services Tamdown Group The Gardeners, Chelmsford The George Inn, Shalford Tiger Business Supplies Ltd Tracy Williams Photography TSB Bank Plc, Chelmsford TSB Bank Plc, Dunmow Yaxley Hair & Beauty Yelo Taxis Photos from the launch event can be found on our Facebook page.
