Time is running out for businesses to sign up to take part in the Saint Michael’s You’re Inspired charity challenge.

Stylists from Baroque are challenging other businesses in the district to get involved in the apprentice-style contest which sees participants complete to grow a £100 investment loan and return the biggest profit to the hospice.

Last year the salon, which is also sponsoring this year’s event, competed with a risque calendar to raise money for Saint Michael’s - the charity providing care for more than 2,000 people living with terminal illness and bereavement every year.

Manager Simon Somerville-Frost said: “As a small business Baroque’s values are to support the local community and other small businesses.”

“To actually feel like you are making a difference by participating in You’re Inspired leaves you with a feeling like no other.

“We could not encourage businesses enough to enrol and participate in what could be the most fun for you and your colleagues.

“There’s a great feeling of community spirit and reward for such an inspiring charity. We’re inspired, we now challenge other businesses to be inspired and take part.”

You’re Inspired is returning for its fourth year to raise vital funds and provide a unique opportunity for businesses to engage staff and raise their profile locally.

Saint Michael’s has five places left for teams of up to ten people to take part and win the You’re Inspired trophy.

l Entry closes on September 19 or when all places are filled.
