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 region's 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 saw 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 worked 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.

Sunderland University students took part to be crowned the winner!

Take £25 is kindly sponsored by Station Taxis Sunderland.






The teams raised an amazing total of £3,611!

The winning team was Prestige Worldwide, who raised £964.82 from the initial £25.

Runner-ups were Miracle Workers, raising £265.05.

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.”

Stay tuned, we hope to expand the Take £25 Challenge throughout the region soon!
