What is it?
Grow Your Dough is a corporate challenge where teams will receive a starter donation of £40 to invest and grow!

Teams should use their creativity and business knowledge to grow your £40 during the challenge. This could be buying ingredients for a bake sale, buying a prize for a raffle, purchasing treats for an office tuck shop or organising your own event.

The deadline to sign up and take part is 31 August 2024 and you have until 31 October 2024 to raise as much as you can for St Richard’s.

The earlier you sign up, the more time you have to grow your dough!

What is our goal and why should you take part?
We’re hoping to raise £40,000 in our 40th year of providing hospice care!

The money raised will allow St Richard’s Hospice to fund two months of specialist care provided to patients in our In-patient Unit.

On 1 May 1984 we accepted our first patient and our service to our communities in Worcestershire has continued unbroken since. Since then St Richard’s has received more than 73,000 referrals for people to access its service for patients, their loved ones, carers and bereaved people.

After the walk, Firewalk participants return indoors to the workshop space to share experiences. We will have a group photo and give out certificates to each participant.

It’s not uncommon to have people that have an emotional response, whether extreme joy or relief. The Firewalk team are trained in helping participants, whatever emotions may come up.

The teaching is the fire.
If we do not challenge ourselves we will never understand and reach our true potential.

The fire is a place where shared experience encourages bonding, new found friendships and partnerships. A place to overcome challenges and fears together, to grow and learn together, with mutual support and encouragement from those around you.
