We worked closely with Starbucks to develop the Starbucks Adventure Challenge, a hiking, biking and canoeing event in Wales involving Starbucks Partners from all over the UK.
David Argent, Operations Director, Starbucks, said ‘The CARE team delivered a truly memorable challenge event and were partnering with us right from the start, setting it up, helping with ideas on fundraising, communicating and then on the day itself. As a result of the CARE team’s support, planning and organisation, they were able to create a safe and secure environment where our Starbucks partners could be really inspired by both a sense of personal achievement, team working and importantly, through their fundraising, were making a real difference to peoples day to day lives in Ethiopia.”
Gucci Group commissioned us to run their own Gucci Group Paris to London Cycle Challenge in September 2010. The 3 day challenge started from their Boucheron store in the centre of Paris and finished at Hyde Park, near their London office. The tough but extremely rewarding challenge united employees from UK, France and Italy, and the group raised an impressive £33,585 for CARE.
‘I really enjoyed working with the CARE Challenge Team on Gucci Group’s Paris to London Cycle Challenge. Having a bespoke event was great because it met our unique needs, such as starting and finishing at our offices in Paris and London, and really helped us to get a feel for CARE’s work. From the beginning, CARE worked closely with us to design the perfect challenge to suit us, and we felt supported at every stage, from general preparation to fundraising. I would recommend the CARE Challenge Team to other organisations looking for a great team building, charity event. It was well organised, fun and safe and we are already planning our next cycle with CARE.’
