The competition, which starts today, sees companies compete to raise as much money as possible with a budget of just £50.
Any money raised goes to Saint Francis Hospice which provides care and support to individuals with a life-limiting illness, as well as their carers and family members.
24 companies took part in the 2019 event, raising more than £18,000 in total.
Last year, Time 107.5 won the competition after running a series of initiatives which raised £6,551.
Daytime show presenter, Mark Dover, was sponsored by listeners to lose weight. That received some big donations, including £500 given by Darren Griffiths from Stoneshaw Estates.
Time 107.5 listener, Richelle Cook, helped by having her head shaved at our studio in Romford.
The radio station also held the Solid Gold Road Show at the Romford United Services Social Club. DJ’s Neil Andrews and Steve Dean entertained partygoers with a range of classic hits.
Saint Francis Hospice’s Corporate Partnerships Manager, Tom Murtagh, said: “It’s a great challenge to really engage staff in and it’s something fun to do at the start of the year.
“It’s also a great way of promoting a business and it really demonstrates the businesses getting involved in the local community.
“The hospice supports people with life-limiting conditions in Havering, Redbridge, Barking, Dagenham, and Brentwood.
“We support around 1,700 each year, not just in the hospice but in people’s homes so all the money raised will go to a worthy cause which will help a lot of local people.”
