IT’S BACK! We’ve enjoyed huge success with our Accumulator Challenge over the past two years, we’re delight to be launching this year’s event on 1st May 2019!
How it works:
Each entrant is given a start-up fund: £100 to Teams and £50 to individuals.
We appreciate that organising any fundraising activity can involve some upfront costs and we don’t want you to be out of pocket, so you can use this fund to get started on your fundraising mission!
The fundraising takes place 1st May – 31st October. We will set each team up with a Just Giving page and you can direct all fundraising, donations and sponsorship to this page. You will also be able to see how you are doing compared to the other teams!
In November you will be invited to an awards evening, where we will bring individual and team participants, Cyril Flint staff, befriendees and befrienders together. This will be an evening of celebration of all the fundraising that has taken place throughout the challenge. It will also be an opportunity for teams to meet some of the people their fundraising will help. During this evening we will present awards for special achievements.
Awards will be presented to individuals and teams for the following:
*Most Innovative Idea
*Most Funds Raised
*Best Publicity Piece
You will be supported throughout the six month challenge. We have a How-To guide full of ideas on how you can spend your start-up fund to generate more funds, from spending it on ingredients for cakes to host your own bake sales in the office, to using the funds to hire a room and entertainment and put on your own event! We have step by step guides and our Operations Manager, Alex, will be on hand throughout the six months to help you/your team. We will also provide you with any Cyril Flint items that may help such as balloons, branded t-shirts, posters, pens and leaflets.
