Get Nifty With a Fifty - The LOROS Accumulator Challenge 2015

Following the great success of last year’s campaign LOROS would like to invite individuals and groups of all sizes to get involved with the LOROS Accumulator Challenge 2015 and compete alongside other local companies, organisations and groups in a bid to win awards for the "Most Innovative Idea”, "Most Engaging Idea" and "Most Money Raised". Last year's Challenge was successfully completed by 20 teams and this year, to celebrate LOROS' 30th Anniversary, we are aiming for 30 teams to join our Accumulator Challenge!

Ian Colledge, owner of The Plant Man and a winner of the “Most Innovative Idea” award last said, “We will certainly be happy to participate again in the LOROS Accumulator Challenge. We hope to raise more this year!”

…and Meanesh Soni, Customer Relations Executive at British Gas Business and a winner of the “Most Money Raised Idea” in last year’s challenge said, ”The Accumulator Challenge was an excellent opportunity to raise money for a very worthwhile cause. The participants showed great team spirit and everyone who got involved thoroughly enjoyed the fundraising.”

The challenge is straightforward:
LOROS kick off the campaign on 18th March 2015 and provide you with £50 and a pack full of inspiring ideas. You have three months to "grow" that £50 in any way you like as long as it is legal and ethical.

The challenge will finish on 18th June with an Award Ceremony at LOROS , where competitors will have the opportunity to see exactly how the money raised will benefit our charity whilst indulging in canapés and fizz.
Leading participants will feature in press releases generating excellent PR for your organisation. LOROS will also feature your fundraising activities on our webpage and social media.

Magdalena Korytkowska, Fundraising Co-Ordinator at LOROS said: “Last year's challenge raised well over £6,000 which is equivalent to the cost of a LOROS Community Nurse Specialist being able to visit 65 terminally ill patients in their homes in Leicester, Leicestershire or Rutland. You can make a difference to our patients and their families this year so register to the LOROS Accumulator Challenge today!

“Benefits of taking part in this initiative include: articles on the LOROS webpage, buzz on our FB and Twitter (7715 followers on FB and more than 2500 on Twitter) and a fantastic networking evening at the end of the challenge with other participants.”
