The Accumulator Challenge

October 1, 2019 - October 31, 2019

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!
