Stockport Frog auction

The 21 gigantic frogs that made up Stockport’s Gigantic Leap Frog Art Trail throughout the summer and seven of the One Stockport frogs that took up residence across the borough have hopped out of Stockport to prepare to go under the hammer before hopping of for pastures and ponds new!

Taking place at Stockport County’s Edgeley Park ground, this is your chance to net yourself your very own frog. Did you have a favourite frog? With 28 vibrant frogs to choose from, you’ll be spoilt for choice.

The auction, conducted by Simon Charles Auctioneers, will take place at Edgeley Park on Wednesday 10th November from 6pm. A welcome drink and canapés will be served as visitors have the chance to see all the frogs together in one place for the last time before they go under the hammer at 8pm.

This year, we’re so grateful that all proceeds of the auction are being donated to St Ann’s Hospice as we celebrate our 50th birthday year.

The Accumulator Challenge

The Accumulator Challenge is back for October 2019!

How much can you raise with £100?

All the money our teams accumulate will help St Ann’s continue to provide care to the thousands of local patients and their families we support each year.

Last year, law firm, Clarke Willmott won the accolade of ‘The Ultimate Accumulator’, raising an amazing £6,040. Thirty keen staff members saddled up on static bikes at their Manchester offices to cycle the equivalent distance between each of Clarke Willmott’s offices across the country. They even managed to rope in the presenter, Gethin Jones, to gain some extra publicity for the fundraising challenge!

We loved the Accumulator Challenge and of course, as lawyers, we like to win, but the main story here is the amount local businesses can raise in a short period of time when they get together and channel their efforts. We stand proudly behind the work St Ann’s does as many of our staff, including me, have had family members needing end of life hospice care. It was very humbling to visit the Heald Green hospice on the awards night and hear real-life stories about how fundraising really makes a difference.

Fancy having a weekly gin trolley at your work?

Watch this film featuring Jon, at Eversheds Sutherland, who explains why they took part in the Accumulator Challenge and some top tips!

We love the sound of the gin trolley! What would your tips be to raise money in the workplace?

Here’s a few top tips on how your team can be successful at the Accumulator Challenge:

  • Get active and organise a sports day! Hire out a sports hall with the money, and charge people to take part or watch.
  • As the Accumulator Challenge takes place in October, why not embrace the Halloween theme! Have a fancy dress day in the office or throw a Halloween themed party.
  • Plan lots of fun and varied events throughout the month. This brings in more sponsorship money and it’s a great way to bond as a team.
  • Try something new to keep your organisation engaged. It doesn’t have to be complicated, it just has to be fun!

Do you have what it takes to compete with local businesses to raise the most money and become The Ultimate Accumulator 2019?

The challenge offers a great team building opportunity, as well as an opportunity for competitive colleagues to put their ideas to the test. Sign up below or by calling 0161 498 3631 or emailing
