Call for businesses to accept fundraising mission with a difference

A local charity is on the hunt for business savvy teams willing to put their skills to the test and embark on a secret mission all in the name of a good cause.

Mission Improbable, a new event organised by St Nicholas Hospice Care, will see teams from a variety of local businesses step out of the boardroom as they accept a fundraising mission with a difference.

Sponsored by Ashtons Legal, the challenge, which will take place on Friday, October 19, will see people put their business minds and teamwork to the test to raise funds for the charity, which supports those across West Suffolk and Thetford in the final chapters of their lives.

Armed with a mobile phone, each team will navigate their way around Bury St Edmunds to complete a bespoke mission by undertaking a series of unknown challenges.

Competing against one another to accumulate the most points, each team will need to employ all of their stealth, problem-solving skills and cunning as they race against the clock.

Abby Mayes, the hospice’s corporate fundraising manager, said: “Mission Improbable will be a new event for the hospice. We haven’t tried anything like this before and we are looking forward to hosting a different sort of fundraising challenge for the charity.

“Teamwork will be key and hopefully throughout the day, they will be able to use a healthy dose of competitive spirit to their advantage.

“We already have a number of teams signed up, but the more the merrier, so if you think you’re up to completing a secret mission in aid of a good cause please get in touch.”

Each team that takes part will need to raise a minimum of £1,000 for the hospice. If you’re interested in entering a team please get in touch with Abby Mayes by emailing
