We will be on hand throughout the whole process with helpful hints, tips and support along the way to make this as easy for you as possible.

The challenge will close with a presentation evening where we will celebrate the success of all those involved. Each team will be given a participation certificate and special recognition will be awarded to teams for ‘Most innovative idea’ and ‘Most money raised’ amongst others.
