Charity Challenges

Team Building Events

Team building motivates, connects and develops your team, how about going one step further and making it a charity team building event? Working with Quest you can grow your team and raise money for a highly deserving charity too! What’s not to like with this incredible combo’? It’s a double-bubble bonus!

Charity Challenge team building events significantly strengthen charity-corporate sponsor relationships; maximise fund raising; help organisations meet their corporate social responsibility commitments and can help achieve a range of strategic corporate objectives.

KEY FEATURES

Big opportunities for big teams to raise big money

Number of people

Designed for medium to large groups

Charity challenge team building events have been run in the past for groups of 50 to 500+ participants. Obviously the more people that take part, the greater scope there is for raising more for your charity or charities. 

Duration

Anything from a few hours to a full weekend

Charity challenges are delivered to a whole range of timescales depending on their format and your requirements. They can include an overnight stay to maximise networking and a gala dinner to round off a memorable experience.

Team Size

Small teams are the norm

Teams usually consist of 4-6 people so that everyone gets involved and is engaged in the challenge. Teams can consist of employees from different offices to promote networking and colleague awareness.

LOCATION

Anywhere in the UK… and beyond!

Finding the perfect venue that can host your event in a suitable location for your charity challenge is all part of the Quest service. We have excellent relationships with venues all over the UK which do just that.

Event Format

The best way to illustrate how these events work is to provide some actual examples. Below are a few case studies of recent Charity Challenge team building events:

10 Years and Counting

Quest has been running these hugely popular annual events for over ten years now. They have two key objectives which are to:

  • Raise as much money as possible for their chosen charity
  • Encourage colleague engagement and promote colleague well-being

The TeamWalk Challenges are hugely popular and attract upwards of 600 people. Consequently venues are required that can accommodate and host those numbers for a gala dinner and all of the Center Parcs venues that are open to corporate groups have been used with great success.

In addition, in recent years one of the TeamWalk Challenge events has been held at the Celtic Manor Resort, with exclusive use of their golf course used for the challenge itself.

Fund-raising for the NSPCC

This fun packed Corporate Charity Challenge was organised for Lloyds Banking Group. The resulting funds raised for the NSPCC were in excess of £100,000.

This competitive event was staged at Bath University and the 350 competitors came from across the bank’s branch network.

It took place over 36 hours and comprised an extensive range of activities that maximised the university’s excellent sports facilities.

Highlights saw teams take on a night exercise, kayaking, slalom canoeing, a climbing wall and the University of Bath’s (and UK’s only) bobsleigh and skeleton push-start track.

Teams earned pieces of a giant jigsaw puzzle for completing each activity, and the grand finale involved all the teams coming together to complete the bespoke event-themed puzzle.

In Aid of Make A Wish

This sponsored charity challenge saw 25 teams of four people come together and raise over £50,000 for the Make a Wish Foundation.

The event consisted of three stages; kayaking, mountain biking and a vertical limit challenge, with each team undertaking each stage together as a whole team.

Within each stage there were a range of checkpoints for teams to visit. Each checkpoint had a value and the winners were the team that accumulated the most points within the time limit.

The event was continuous with no time out in between stages. This meant teams could chose in which order they undertook each stage. Teams chose how many checkpoints to visit, but they needed to visit at least one checkpoint in each stage to avoid a penalty.

This format gave each team maximum flexibility. They could play to the strengths of their team, choose their own route and even change their race plan midway through!

The course was designed to provide plenty of route choice and to showcase the best of the area. An electronic scoring system was used which enabled results to be calculated quickly and easily. 

And the best part was the event raised in excess of £50,000 for the Charity ‘Make a Wish’!

A Bespoke Adventure Race

A group of 120 staff from the retail group, Blacks, took part in a bespoke Adventure Race staged in the beautiful hills around Bredon, Worcestershire.

The event took the format of one of Quest’s very popular Questars adventure races. Along with mountain biking, trail running and kayaking on the River Avon the teams were also set some cerebral puzzles to test their minds and challenges to develop their team work.

Teams came from Blacks retail outlets across the UK and competed enthusiastically to become the Blacks Adventure Racing Team Champions. All the teams’ hard work was made all the more worthwhile because the event raised in excess of £30,000 for charity.
