Described as a Ground Force type challenge, teams work together to improve the landscape in the local community. Past projects have included planting a new orchard, creating a sensory garden, repairing and updating a central London community sailing centre and regenerating a local cemetery amongst others.
Each team receives the same bicycle parts, after taking part in a series of competitive games in order to receive them. The reward for building the bicycles is the reward of giving back to the community as the bikes will be donated to the charity of their choice.
Teams will engage in fun, challenging team building activities leading to the assembly of care packages for a chosen charity. Examples of charities include homeless shelters, food banks, hospices, and nursing homes.
Charity Store Wars
Teams of six to ten people can take over a chosen high street chain of charity shops for the day, competing against each other to see which team can raise the most money through innovative sales techniques. It’s a great way to create team spirit or develop skills such as dealing with the general public or customer liaison.
Go Get It
Working in teams and linking up with a specific Barnardo’s project, employees are challenged to use their communication skills to persuade companies, contacts, retailers and suppliers to donate a given list of items which the project can use in its direct work with children, or which can be sold or auctioned at a Barnardo’s event.
