Accumulator Challenge

Four months, a £50 stake and the chance to raise as much for ellenor as your company can! 

What is the Accumulator Challenge?
The Accumulator Challenge is a local initiative that will see businesses in the community competing against each other to raise as much as possible for ellenor. We will give your company a crisp £50 note and four months to find ways of increasing it as much as you can. You can be as creative as you dare to be, as long as you keep it safe and legal!

We will be there to support you along the way and your dedicated contact from ellenor will be on hand to help you with your fundraising ideas. However you decide to complete the challenge, this is an ideal opportunity to encourage teamwork, develop creativity, boost morale amongst staff and engage with your local community!

What our winners have to say

“The A4G Amherst team took part in the 2017 ellenor Accumulator Challenge. The team did a number of challenges including a charity networking event, a 150 mile cycle ride, a soft play kids’ party and dress down Fridays. There were regular posts on social media and, with a lot of effort from the staff and mountains of support from our clients; we were crowned the Accumulator Challenge winners for raising the most money for 2017!”  
Marc Vernet, Managing Director at A4G Amherst Ltd

“Baxall Construction chose to be both a sponsor in 2016 and to participate previously, as we saw this as a way of engaging our Team Working ethos to raise funds for such a worthwhile cause. It certainly didn’t disappoint  - so much so our staff have asked to engage as participants again this year”
Malcolm Clarke, Managing Director at Baxall Construction
