Rochdale Training wins Springhill Hospice's Corporate Challenge

Date published: 25 November 2021

Independent training provider Rochdale Training has been named the winner of Springhill Hospice’s Corporate Challenge this year.

Rochdale Training – which helps hundreds of local businesses fill apprenticeships and meet their on-the-job training needs – raised £2,301.54 for the hospice during the three-month challenge, which sees businesses turn a £30 loan into as much profit as they can for the hospice.

This year, six teams took part: Cullen Wealth, Springhill Hospice itself, Roma Publications, Central Networks and Rochdale AFC Community Trust.

In total over £6,600 was raised by the businesses.

Mark Whittaker, Skills Advisor at Rochdale Training, said: "Thanks to all employees, apprentices, and trainees for taking part and being so generous."

Vicki Murray, Corporate and Partnerships Fundraiser at Springhill Hospice, said “Our incredible winner this time was Rochdale Training who raised an amazing £2301.54.

“In a very close second was Cullen Wealth with £2,042.01 and our third-place team was Springhill Hospice on £1,246.32.

“The incredible six teams who took part collectively raised £6,676.37.”

The first ever corporate challenge took place in 2019, with 13 workplaces raising a total of £27,490.
