Kudos raises £1000 for Arthur Rank Hospice Charity
From sweepstakes to raffles, quizzes to physical challenges, Team Kudos has had a wonderful year of fundraising, supporting the inspiring work of Arthur Rank Hospice Charity.
One of the highlights of the year’s fundraising for Arthur Rank Hospice charity was the 500 mile Salcombe to Cambridge challenge. The team aimed to raise £500 by travelling the equivalent of 500 miles – the distance from Kudos’ head office in Salcombe to Arthur Rank Hospice, Cambridge, and back again.
Team Kudos walked, hiked, jogged and cycled to accrue miles until they reached their cumulative team total of 500 miles. Only people-powered miles counted (no motors, electric or wind-power were permitted). Kudos explored lots of beautiful places in England, Wales and Scotland, and by their final week the team had covered a total of 582 miles!
Sarah Dodd said ‘For some of the team, the 500 mile challenge was a walk in the park but for others it was an uphill battle; the team have pulled together, had a lot of fun along the way and were fitter, happier, and healthier as a result. The team’s fundraising journey to support the hospice’s inspiring work has been our privilege & pleasure.’
Later in the year, the Salcombe office raised another £150 towards their fundraising total from their Autumn office quiz, cake sale and raffle. The cakes were delicious and there were some great prizes donated, including a pair of tickets for an Exeter Chiefs match, which Jane was delighted to win.
Kudos also donated money in lieu of sending printed Christmas cards this year, bringing the total amount raised to £1000 for the year. A brilliant team effort, fundraising for Arthur Rank Hospice.
Arthur Rank Hospice said ‘Congratulations on raising such a wonderful amount, we are so grateful for your support, how active you have been, and the dedication to your fundraising throughout the year. Our patients and their loved ones will benefit hugely from your efforts so a big thank you from us all.’
