During February our teams are going head to head to raise money for our charity partner - Barnardo's. Three teams are competing in a Apprentice style challenge to raise as much money as they can for local projects by organising events, with the team raising the most money winning the challenge.
Consisting of three teams, the Apprentice Challenge will see employees organising events including a Golf Day, a Race Night, staff dressed in "Grease" style outfits out on the streets of Preston to collect money, raffles and a charity dance featuring live music from The Rockabelles; a band fronted by Marsden Rawsthorn Legal Executive Kim Seward.
Stephen Hodgson, Chief Executive at Marsden Rawsthorn commented, "The money that we hope to raise from the challenge will certainly go to a deserving cause and we are proud to support Barnardos. It has also stirred up some surprisingly competitive streaks in our employees, which has been great fun for those of us on the judging panel to watch!" The firm currently supports two Barnardo's projects including "Moving On", a project that works with young people that are homeless or in housing need in the Preston area and "Include Me 2", a project that provides support to severely disabled children so they can access social and leisure activities.
