After the success of our first ever Accumulator Challenge in 2017, in which 10 groups raised over £6000, Cyril Flint Befrienders are launching our next challenge and hoping to beat last years’ total!
We are inviting people to join as teams, either with colleagues, friends or family, to see how much money you can raise to help us in our mission to combat loneliness.
We are a Greater Manchester based charity whose aim is to reduce social isolation and loneliness in older people by offering a free befriending service, offering much needed friendship and a connection to the local community that so many older people are missing. As a Charity, we are dependent upon donations, grants and fundraising to help us to continue to operate and reach more lonely older people.
How the competition works:
- Your team/group/organisation will be given a starting fund of £50
- You will then have a 6 month period 2nd April – 1st October 2018 to turn this £50 into as much money as possible for Cyril Flint Befrienders. You can use the money to buy ingredients for bake sales, prizes for quiz nights, or whatever else you need to help in your fundraising efforts.
- After the six month period we will hold an awards evening and crown winners in the following categories:
- Most Funds Raised
- Most Innovative Idea
- Best Publicity Piece
