After eight weeks of FUNdraising as part of the annual Graduate Charity Challenge, the UK Graduate community has raised an incredible £17,838 for international disaster relief charity, RedR.

In October, 268 year one Graduates began strategising in the hope of being part of the team that would top the leader board and get a chance to receive the inaugural Charity Challenge at lunch with former Atkins president, Heath Drewett. From pub quizzes, bake sales and Mario Kart races; to speed networking, street fundraising and physical challenges; and countless other innovative means of getting colleagues, family and friends to part with their pound coins, no stone was left unturned. But there could only be one winner and this year’s coveted Charity Challenge trophy goes to the members of Axis League from Birmingham, pictured below, who raised a grand total of £2,508.

The Charity Challenge is a true test of creativity and collaboration for our Graduates as they embark on their career with us, and once again they’ve outdone themselves for a great cause.

All of the money raised for the Graduate Charity Challenge will help RedR to provide technical skills, online support and hands-on training to aid workers, national NGO staff and communities all across the world, so that they are better equipped at preparing for, responding to and recovering from disasters. In 2016, RedR trained 7,400 people in 55 countries.
