Team Challenge Week

Team Challenge Week provides a fantastic opportunity to get out of the office and volunteer alongside your colleagues! The event brings together volunteers from businesses all over York to make a real difference in the local community. We offer a wide variety of half day ‘turn up and do’ challenges which are available to anyone, with no preparation necessary!

This year’s Team Challenge Week took place between the 11th and 15th May and was a big success. We worked with 18 teams from 11 local businesses who took part in a variety of projects throughout York. This included projects at organisations as diverse as RSPCA York Animal Home, Poppleton Community Railway Nursery, and Friends of York Cemetery. We were lucky to have wonderful weather for almost the entire week, and our community partners were delighted to have lots of extra pairs of helping hands.

Team Challenge Week is a great way of getting involved in the local community in a fun and practical way. If you’ve never done a Team Challenge before it’s a great introduction and is open to everyone.

Later in the year, we’ll also be organising our annual Big Community Challenge which takes place every October.  Big Community Challenge 2015 promises to make a huge difference in local areas and you and your team can help make this happen! We will be recruiting teams of volunteers from September onwards so watch this space.
