In April this year Cyril Flint Befrienders launched our first ever Accumulator Challenge. We invited teams to sign up and compete to see who could raise the most funds in a six month period. All teams were given £50 each and tasked to be as creative as possible to turn this into as much money as possible for the charity to help us in our mission to combat loneliness in the elderly.
With the competition now nearing its completion, the final day for fundraising being 30th September 2017, we wanted to shine some light on our brilliant teams and the tireless work they have been doing since April to fundraise.
Having fundraised an amazing £3636.70 in 2015-16 for Cyril Flint Befrienders, the Music Team at PHMG were excited to sign up for our Accumulator Challenge this year. From the outset their aim was to do something big and after toying with a few ideas they decided to climb Snowdon. They knew this would be a challenge but felt it still didn’t stand out enough and so opted to climb Snowdon by moonlight to make it that bit more difficult!
The support the team received was outstanding and they raised a huge £1700! The team are now busy arranging their next event, a music quiz, which should be a little kinder on their tired legs!
