When Willow Burn Hospice threw out a challenge to members of their BNI chapter, Julie Armstrong, of Forever Living – the global health and wellbeing company was quick to rise to the challenge to help raise cash for such a worthy cause.
Rallying the support of a handful of business associates from More Than Financial, Thermapoint, Ensure Inheritance and Gateway Commercial Finance, Julie called out to her business forum executives to rise to the challenge and pledge a personal commitment to take up the Forever Living C9 Challenge.
The challenge was to sign up to Forever’s popular C9 cleanse and detox, and with a creative twist, swap LBs in weight for pounds in a matched donation from Julie’s Forever business for those completing the programme.
And in just over a week, the enterprising group of Executives managed to not only stay on track, but to shed an amazing 50 pounds in weight between them in just 9 days flat – and all in the name of a fantastic charity!
And when presented with the donation following the success of the group, Laura Douthwaite, Senior Fundraiser at Willow Burn Hospice said she was delighted with the contribution to Willow Burn.
“Every donation we receive is gratefully appreciated, said Laura, and we were delighted to see the efforts of the inspiring team. It demonstrates the many creative ways local businesses and individuals can support Willow Burn”.
