“Cancer is an issue that’s close to all of our hearts. Almost everyone at Boost Capital has known someone who’s suffered from this horrible disease. Helen Rollason is a fantastic local charity, providing real help to people at their greatest time of need. It’s for this reason that we’re delighted to be able to help out in whatever way we can.”

Karen Mitchell, Corporate Fundraiser for Helen Rollason Cancer Charity said;

“This will be a light-hearted evening where everyone will be able to stretch their brain cells for a good cause. If you are a business owner looking to fulfil your corporate social responsibilities, looking for a team building event, an informal networking opportunity or simply fancy supporting HRCC in a fun way, we would love to welcome you along!

We already have a number of Chelmsford teams signed up including Tees, Scrutton Bland, Birkett Long, Birketts, Swift Construction, Abacus Build;  if you think you can beat them why not join us? We also have a HRCC Volunteers and Staff team ready to play, plus a team of HRCC Trustees so the battle is on to come out on top!

Any support will be very much appreciated, even if you simply share our flyer with co-workers and friends/family; I hope many local businesses are able to get a team together and come along on the night. But don’t delay – we only have a couple of tables left!”
