Engage staff

The 1-2-3 Challenge is an all-encompassing programme that offers the best benefits for both your organisation and the hospice, but what does it mean for your staff?

Easy as 1-2-3

The 1-2-3 Challenge is made up of three parts: your teams will be encouraged to volunteer, organise and challenge themselves. There’s a whole host of ways to get involved. For example, volunteering in our Shop Wars, or at our community events; or organising coffee mornings or bake sales at work.

The ‘challenge’

The ‘challenge’ element is for anyone who wants to get the adrenaline flowing, from skydives to sponsored walks we have something for everyone.
