Mobius Works announces “10 for £10k” charity challenge
Bristol’s youth charity Empire Fighting Chance to benefit from year-long push
2020 will see Mobius Works, the integrated services contractor, committing to 10 different charity challenges throughout the year, in a bid to raise £10,000 for Bristol youth charity, Empire Fighting Chance. The charity, which was visited by Prince Harry and Meghan Markle last year, was born on Bristol’s streets to tackle the impact of poverty on young lives.

Lee Bignell, Founder and MD, commented: “The work of Empire Fighting Chance has captured all of our imaginations, as they work so hard to inspire young people who have already faced so many challenges in their lives, to realise their own potential. They use a mix of non-contact boxing and intensive personal support and the results are incredible.
“There’s something for everyone in our list of 10 charity challenges and I’m so pleased and grateful the whole team have given their time and commitment. 2020 is about giving back and as many of us are born and bred in Bristol we were keen to try and contribute locally. It’s an ambitious target but we are all up for getting stuck in.”
