Join the 50th Medal Campaign and become a C360 Champion
Community360 (C360) is celebrating serving residents in Essex for 50 years. These celebrations will recognise the role that the voluntary sector plays, honour those who have spent time supporting people in the last 50 years and to say thank you to those who are still doing so.
At its heart are five pledges, one of which is to raise a £50,000 community chest for the voluntary and community sector. The 50th Medal Campaign forms part of this pledge as it enables staff, volunteers and anyone else wanting to get involved, to set their own targets and raise £50 or more for the community chest. Challenges could include losing 50 pounds in weight, walking 50,000 steps in a sponsored walk, or running a marathon. Some of the brave Community360 staff and volunteers will be skydiving to help to reach the target figure. If you would like to participate in this challenge, please contact C360 to be sent the sign up details.
Other 50th Campaign events arranged by C360 staff and volunteers include a craft fair, quiz night, sponsored walk, equestrian car boot sale, and the Tree-mendous Walk of Braintree and Bocking Public Gardens which takes place on Wednesday 4th July. Full details for all events can be found on the C360 website.
Those that successfully complete the challenge of raising £50 or more for the community chest will be invited to an awards ceremony in Colchester, where they will be presented with a medal and awarded the ‘C360 Champion’ title to celebrate their contribution.
There are many ways in which £50 can be raised for example; hold a dress down day at work, organise a cake sale, complete a sponsored walk/run, set up a sponsored swimming challenge, or arrange a social gathering such as a tea party. Participants do not necessarily need to set up an event themselves, they can participant in a local event and raise the £50 through sponsorship. C360 will support all participants throughout by providing sponsorship forms, an online donation page, collection buckets and any other marketing material required.
Share your plans to raise £50 with C360 by completing the signup form and you will be sent an information pack.
All money raised must be received by 1st April 2019 to be eligible for the medal. See terms and conditions.
