Accumulator Challenge

  • Date: 6th September - 6th December

How much can you raise with £50 in 3 months?

As we emerge from these difficult times and return to some form of normality, why not have some fun and put your money-making skills to the test with our Accumulator Challenge!

Each team will be given £50 and three months to find interesting and innovative ways of accumulating those pounds to make as much profit as possible, all of which will be donated back to St. Michael’s Hospice. The three-month challenge kicks off on 6th September and culminates on 6th December followed by an awards evening in December, when you and your team could pick up the top prize!
