Brachers has committed to sponsoring the Heart of Kent Hospice’s initiative, the Accumulator Challenge. The challenge encourages teams to use their entrepreneurial skills to turn £30 into the highest possible amount.
It was first held in 2019 and was considered so successful, the hospice decided to run it again in 2021 in what will be its 30th anniversary. The challenge is open to businesses, schools and community groups who are each given a £30 starter fund, then have three months to grow it as big as possible. The only restrictions are that fundraising is carried out in a safe and legal way.
The 2021 challenge begins on 1 January and ends on 31 March 2021. Representatives from each team will then be invited to an awards celebration on 20 April 2021, where one team will be crowned the winner. Participants will be capped at 30 teams, so those wanting to take part are asked to register their interest now.
Joanna Worby, Brachers Managing Partner, said: “Brachers is thrilled to sponsor Heart of Kent Hospice’s Accumulator Challenge. As a strong supporter of our community, we believe this is a great initiative to get the creative juices flowing, work as a team and unite as a community. We can’t wait to see the fundraising ideas the teams come up with.”
Claire Whybrew, Heart of Kent Hospice’s Corporate Partnerships Manager, said: “We’ll be encouraging our 2021 Accumulator Challengers with regular visits to support their fundraising activities and provide ideas and tips. Each fortnight we’ll share a leader-board so teams can see how they compare against the competition.”
As a firm, Brachers has long understood the importance of supporting the community in which it has resided for 125 years. The firm believes that corporate social responsibility is an integral part of living up to this and participates in a range of local activities – including charitable support and sponsorship of local sports teams – which it believes helps make a difference.
Brachers is joint sponsor alongside MHA MacIntyre Hudson. People interested in taking part should contact Claire on Claire.Whybrew@hokh.co.uk.
