Another challenger, Louise Scott, Account Manager at H Bell & Sons said: “When Springhill came to us with this exciting new fundraiser; we knew we had to get involved.

“We’re a competitive team so I am looking forward to seeing what we come up with in the next three months to raise as much money as possible for the Hospice. Becoming champions wouldn’t be too bad either.”

Sophie Ansley, Corporate and Partnerships Fundraiser at Springhill Hospice said: “We are delighted to launch our brand-new Corporate Challenge aimed to bring out the creative and competitive side of Rochdale workplaces, all whilst raising much needed funds for the Hospice.

“We already have a group of really enthusiastic teams who are raring to get started and the more teams we have, the more money we raise!”
