Page Group – Apprentice Shop Challenge

Over 50 employees from the Page Group left their offices behind to take on our Apprentice Shop Challenge in October. The teams took over 5 of our charity shops and ran activities throughout the day to encourage donations and boost their fundraising total.

Prior to the day the office had organised a One Good Thing collection and these items alone were valued at £955.

The teams certainly embraced the Great British Bake Off craze and there were cakes a plenty as well as raffles and tombolas. A number of teams also set up Justgiving pages and received sponsorship for their fancy dress outfits and various challenges.

Combining shop takings, on the day fundraising, Justgiving and One Good Thing items the Page Group raised an incredible £6,461.00.

The winning team was the Walton shop who all had a fantastic day: “Everyone felt so strongly about the charity that they were all just totally committed to the cause.  Your team in the Walton shop are lovely and were really supportive and encouraging of us and we thoroughly enjoyed the day.  Please give them our thanks as they didn’t mind us moving things around and getting in the way which made life very easy!”  Sarah Adam, Talent Team, Page Group.
