Tuesday 4th April 2017

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!
