Scotland’s Business Leaders Breathe Fire into Children’s Charity Challenge

Scottish children's charity, CHILDREN 1ST, are launching a corporate challenge with some fire this Summer with their Dragons' Glen challenge. The challenge sees teams from various companies writing a business plan to turn £500 into £5000+ and then pitching it to a panel of Dragons comprised of Frank Blin CBE, Michelle Mone OBE and Sir William Haughey. Once they have pitched their idea, the teams are then pitted against each other to make as much money as they can from their initial £500. The Dragons will not only offer on the spot feedback from the pitch but also light mentoring through the whole process, making this a unique development opportunity as well as a fantastic way to help vulnerable children in Scotland.
The competition will run in Glasgow and in Edinburgh, and both cities will celebrate their hard work and commercial talents at a joint awards ceremony in the new year - the only question is which city will raise the most?
All money raised will go to help CHILDREN 1ST, who work with almost 5,000 of Scotland's most vulnerable children and families each year. CHILDREN 1ST work with children who have suffered from issues such as abuse, neglect, parental substance misuse and family breakdown. CHILDREN 1ST works to give children safer and happier childhoods, and consequently the brighter futures. For more information please visit www.children1st.org.uk .
Spaces in the Glasgow competition are filling up with companies such as Bellcom, Bank of Scotland, O2 and RSM Tenon already signed up. If you are interested in this unique development opportunity as well as making a real difference to the lives of vulnerable children in Scotland, please download the leaflet or get in touch on email@example.com .
