Proud sponsors of St Elizabeth Hospice challenge

18th July 2012 By Louise Stephens in News

little green plane is proud to be sponsoring Ipswich-based St Elizabeth Hospice’s first ever Accumulator Challenge. The event will see regional businesses generate as much cash as they can, starting with a seed fund of £50 within a six month period. 

We have equipped all participants with a special email marketing pack to promote their fundraising endeavours, alongside some training on our software, as well as contributing to the seed fund itself. Email marketing is a great way to promote an event, see our tips if you need convincing!

The Hospice’s Business Development Officer Sarah Norton explained: “St Elizabeth Hospice costs millions of pounds a year to run and we rely on fundraising and donations from local businesses and the wider community.  

“We are always trying to come up with imaginative and simple ways to engage with corporate organisations and we think the Accumulator Challenge 2012 will be an exciting prospect for a lot of companies.  It is an ideal opportunity to encourage teamwork, develop creativity and boost morale amongst staff and compete against other businesses in a fun way.”


Sounds like fun? If you’d like to be involved in the Challenge but not sure how to money-spin your £50 into further profits take a look at some semi business-related ideas below:

  • Bake sale for your hungry colleagues
  • A ‘new to golf ’networking morning for clients and prospects at your local golf centre
  • Beer and BBQ event for clients and prospects (when the summer sun arrives)
  • Sell ice-cream cones to colleagues and near-by businesses (again, on a hot day – also good for morale and networking)
  • Swishing or clothes swapping event
  • A work swear box (for any naughty colleagues)
  • Skills auction – swap your knitting skills for car maintenance with colleagues or clients
  • Arm wrestling challenge (I would lose)
  • Sponsored beard growing (for the boys, naturally)
  • Car-wash-a-thon (particularity good in shared office space and if you have a filthy fleet of work vehicles)
  • Client/staff football match
  • Fireworks party
