£50 and the chance to raise as much money for HERIB as you and your colleagues can.

Is your business ready for the Challenge?

Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to turn £50 into £500 (or more) for HERIB!

You can raise funds by whatever means you like…as long as it’s safe and legal!

As well as raising funds to help us provide support services for local people who are blind or partially sighted, our Challenge 500 is a great way to work together with your colleagues to compete against other local businesses and to boost a little healthy competition.

You could run fundraising events at work, invest on the stock market, auction items, set sporting challenges or organise social activities to raise money. In fact you can do absolutely anything you like (as long as it’s legal!).

Think of the benefits!

Not only would you be helping us to continue to provide our life enhancing services to local people with sight loss, but there are many benefits for your company too:

• Brilliant for team building

• Networking opportunities

• Healthy competition

• Great publicity opportunities – you can promote your activities within local media, via your own website and social media . All participating companies will also be featured on HERIB’s website and social media.

What happens next?

Entry to the Challenge is via the official registration form only. Complete and sign the registration form and return it to the “Challenge 500 Coordinator” via email at: or post to Challenge 500, HERIB, Beech Holme, Beverley Road, Hull, HU5 1NF.

Please ensure you download and read our Challenge 500 Terms & Conditions before submitting your registration. 

HERIB will present successful applicants with a crisp £50 note  and the participating businesses will have until 31st October 2016 to turn their £50 into £500 (or as much money as possible!).

To celebrate your achievements, each team will receive a special certificate and prizes will also be awarded to teams for ‘Most innovative fundraising idea’ and ‘Most money raised’.

Why be a part of our Challenge?

HERIB is an independent charity which receives no government funding and requires £2,000 to provide its support services each day. We rely on the generosity of companies taking part in schemes like this to ensure we can continue to improve life for local people with sight loss
