Monday 24th September saw the Hospice launch the very first MATCH challenge with Barry Hearn from Matchroom Sport. This is an apprenticeship challenge with 9 teams and 7 schools from across our communities who will be raising as much money as possible for the Hospice. Barry Hearn has given each team £250 ( match funded by Barclays bank). The teams had to submit their business plans, which were very impressive. Barry will be mentoring the teams and visiting them very regularly to see how they are doing.
This is a fantastic new initiative and we are all very excited to watch the implementation of the teams plans.
The teams are:-
Barking Abbey Comprehensive
Chad well Health Academy
King Solomon High
The Royal Liberty
Sacred Heart of Mary Girls school
Good luck to all teams and thank you to Barry Hearn and Barclays Bank.
