We give you £30 to fundraise!
WE would like to give you £30. Yes, Carlisle Mencap is willing to hand over thirty smackers to you and your colleagues.
Well of course there's a catch. But it is a nice one. And it is called the £30 Accumulator Challenge and what it basically means is we give you £30 to start off with - and you come back to us with a big, fat healthy profit. We hope!
Carlisle Mencap is urging teams of chums from work, organisations, gyms, pubs, clubs whatever, to get together and help raise vital funds for the 500 adults and children with learning disabilities that our charity provides across Cumbria. But you are going to have a lot of fun in the process and test your entrepreneurial skills as we challenge you to turn that £30 into as big a figure as possible by DECEMBER 31 2019!
Your team can be as creative as it likes, so long as the fundraising idea is morally sound and legal. If it fits that criteria, then anything goes.
And of course, whatever schemes you come up with to help boost your £30 to - well, £50, £100, £300, £500, who knows? - we will give you advice and support. Your efforts (and therefore your company/organisation) will be given lots of publicity across our website and social media sites, as well as coverage in the local media.
And the winning team which makes the most money will win fabulous prizes!
So what are you waiting for? Enter your team NOW by contacting Events & Fundraising Officer PHIL TAYLOR at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 01228 674393 to register your team and how you can pick up your starting sum of £30.
Once we have several teams, we also plan to host a fun quiz night where you and your colleagues take part against the other fundraisers and the winner receives a sum of dosh to add to their £30 challenge total.
