The Queen Elizabeth pub in Forest Side, Chingford, has become the latest business to sign up to Mission 365.

The aim of the Mission is to get 365 local businesses to each raise £1,135 over the course of a year, which can pay for one night's care for a child at the Hospice. If 365 companies complete their mission they will have collectively funded a whole year of overnight care.

To kick off their fundraising, the Queen Elizabeth held a fabulous raffle at their ‘Evening of Rat Pack’ which took place on 29 July 2016. They raised a fantastic £121 on the night which is a brilliant start to their Mission.

Businesses can raise funds at any time over the year and there are so many fun and exciting ways they can do so. Past fundraisers include golf days, sponsored Zumba events, participation in challenge events and fabulous customer raffles.

Of course, there are plenty of other fundraising ideas too and it’s always exciting to hear what different companies come up with!

The Queen Elizabeth joins 27 other Mission 365 members, some of who have already completed the Mission.
