The Corporate Challenge calls upon cross-business teams from different companies to conceive a fundraising strategy, map out a budget and present their plan to Beanstalk’s panel of corporate ‘Dragons’. The teams then have six months to compete against each other and raise a minimum of £10,000.
The eight-strong Vestra team organised a ‘Clash of the Titans’ City Dodgeball event and took part in a Three Peak Challenge, raising over £20,000 over a six month period to win last year’s Challenge.
Vestra’s success has been noted in the ‘Best Challenge Event’ category of The Business Charity Awards, run by Third Sector magazine to recognise the outstanding contribution made by businesses in the UK to good causes.
There are 22 categories open for entry this year and the winners will be announced at an awards ceremony at Grosvenor House on Monday 24th May.
“We are delighted to see Vestra Wealth being nominated for such a prestigious award,” said Liz Bennett, Beanstalk’s Corporate & Major Donor Fundraising Manager. “Despite being the smallest firm represented within the Challenge, Vestra battled through to raise the highest amount of funds. We are immensely grateful for their contribution.”
