Take £25 Business Challenge

Take 25’ is an exciting fundraising challenge ran by The Children’s Foundation giving North East students the opportunity to go head to head in a battle to become the regions best entrepreneurs! All money raised will support our work helping distressed, disadvantaged and disabled children across the region.

Beginning Monday 22nd October 2018, Take £25 sees teams of 4 students battle to raise as much money as possible from a budget of £25 over a 4 week period!

The teams of 4 will work together to put on events, buy items to sell and run fundraising activities to develop their team-work and entrepreneurial skills while raising money for The Children’s Foundation.

Students are taking part from universities and colleges across the region in the battle to be crowned the winner!

Take £25 is kindly sponsored by Station Taxi’s Sunderland.






In 2017 the teams raised an amazing total of £5,597.77!

They held music nights and pub quizzes; they planned a Greek party; they made pancakes and baked cakes; they went on charity walks and took part in TCF’s annual abseil last month; one student even had a sponsored hair dyeing – and there was almost a sponsored tattoo!

The winning team was Heroes for Children, who raised £564.31 from the initial £25.

Runner-ups were William’s Warriors, raising £537.81.

Module leader Joel Arnott said: “This challenge provided students with a fantastic opportunity to develop, learn, and give back to their community. Overall, the students enthusiastically embraced the opportunity. There were a good number exceptional team performances, and the overall result was amazing, surpassing the expected outcome by some margin and contributing to such a worthy cause.”
