The Master Cutler’s Challenge 2009 is off to a flying start thanks to a £5,000 donation from Westfield Health.
The aim of the challenge is to raise thousands of pounds for Sheffield Children’s Hospital Charity.
Martin Howell, the Master Cutler, is encouraging 100 organisations from across the region to participate in the event. The entrepreneurial challenge raised over £200,000 last year.
Organisations have until March 6 to sign up and register for the challenge. Participating teams will be invited to a reception at the Cutler’s Hall where they will receive £50, and will then have six months to grow it into as much money as possible for the charity, in a legal and ethical way.
Michael Vaughan, former England Cricket Captain and Patron of the Charity, will be attending the reception on March 6 and will speak about his experiences during the 2005 Ashes victory.
Westfield Health’s Jill Davies says: "The challenge represents a great opportunity to boost staff morale by encouraging teamwork, innovation and creativity, while at the same time helping a worthwhile cause."
