Dragon's Den investor Deborah Meaden backs Children's Hospice South West £50 Challenge
A DRAGON’S Den investor has given her backing to a new charity fundraising scheme.
Deborah Meaden, from the popular BBC series, is calling for South West businesses to take part in The £50 Challenge in aid of Children’s Hospice South West (CHSW).
It will see companies use their business skills and innovation to generate as much money as possible for the charity, which has a hospice – Little Harbour - in Porthpean, near St Austell.
CHSW provides a £50 start-up investment, it’s then over the business to put its money-making acumen to the test by growing this amount as much as legally and ethically possible in just three months.

“These are our children and our families in our region – I can really see the importance of having a place to be with people who understand, who know how to be around you to make this awful thing as painless as it could possibly be,” said the businesswoman who lives in Somerset.
“It is easy when times get hard to just worry about business on a day to day basis and look inward.
“Engaging with the community is so important for companies to look outward and do some real good – and you will feel great about the business too as a result.”
