The Master Cutler's Challenge, 2019

The Master Cutler’s Challenge returns and this year the Master and Mistress Cutler – Nick and Liz Cragg – have decided to support two vital local causes – St Luke’s and Rotherham Hospice.

The Master Cutler’s Challenge has become an annual tradition for the local business community as well as for many community organisations. Hundreds of teams have taken part and the Challenge has raised over £1.5 million to support valued local causes.

The Challenge this year runs from the February Launch to the Celebration Event in September. Participant businesses will receive £50 and your challenge as a team is to use your entrepreneurial skills to make as much money as possible for both hospices! The Challenge team will be on hand to offer you lots of support with your fundraising and to utilise the great PR, CSR and teambuilding opportunities the Challenge offers. Over 80 businesses and organisations (with a strong focus on local manufacturing and professional services) are partaking in this great Challenge which really does showcase the best of the local business community.

We would love to welcome you to the Challenge in 2019.You can find out all about it and register here –
