Petty wins two awards in Pendleside’s Corporate Challenge!

An event was held last week at Burnley Mechanics to celebrate the four month Corporate Challenge, in which businesses competed to raise money for Pendleside Hospice.

The challenge has now become an annual event for many companies and is in its third year. The event was sponsored this year by Charter Walk and the participating companies raised a total of £157,000.

Petty Estate Agents won two awards on the night, the Digital Marketing award and the Man of the Year which went to Petty’s residential director Ian Bythell.

Ian took on many physical challenges during the four months completing the Yorkshire Three Peaks, Burnley 10K, the Great North Run and a 12 hour 150 mile tandem ride.

Petty, which is celebrating its 90th anniversary this year, raised just over £13,000 overall.

Ian said: “It was a great effort by so many people. There were some outstanding amounts raised, but the awards recognised everybody’s contribution – not just those who raised the most money, but also the company’s that took on board the ethos and won engagement from a wider audience.

“We’re really proud to have raised much needed funds for Pendleside Hospice and taken part in such a brilliant initiative. To have so many businesses involved has raised much needed funds, but also engaged lots of people locally and raised awareness of the vitally important work of the Hospice and the fact that they touch so many lives in a really positive way. Most of us have at some point experienced friends or family with life-limiting illnesses and it’s both humbling and inspiring to see the amazing support for people that is provided by our wonderful hospice.”

Christina Cope, from Pendleside Hospice, added: “The amount raised this year has far surpassed last year’s total and has really blown us away. We’re incredibly grateful to have so many prominent local businesses like Petty’s taking part in the challenge and getting so much commitment from all their members of staff.

“As well as raising much needed funds for Pendleside Hospice, the Corporate Challenge benefits the businesses taking part providing team-building opportunities, inter-departmental working, publicity and a contribution to the company’s Corporate and Social Responsibility efforts. They also know that they’ve made a huge contribution to the continued work the hospice does in helping people living with a life-limiting illnesses.”
