Capita Hero Challenge 2017
Capita Challenge is an annual fundraising event that brings colleagues from across our organisation together in a fun-filled adventure day.
Capita Challenge – this year renamed Hero Challenge - is our biggest annual fundraising event, where teams of four from all across our businesses come together to compete for the Hero Challenge winner prize – whilst raising money for our corporate charity partner, Alzheimer’s Society.
Hero Challenge took place in May, and kicked off our partnership with Alzheimer’s Society in style – raising £18,000 for the charity.
40 teams of four competed on the day and employees travelled from far and wide to take part in the day, including teams all the way from our offices in Poland.
Held at our very own Fire Service College site in Gloucestershire, the day began with a firefighter warm up session to get the teams geared up for the activities ahead.
A variety of activities were on offer to get involved with: are varied as puzzles, quizzes, orienteering, and inflatable assault courses. For the first time, a 'remote' challenge was introduced, with team members far and wide taking part in an Alzheimer's Society text-based quiz, from various locations across the country.
Employees volunteered on the day from across the business and Alzheimer’s Society helped out too, delivering a motivational talk to remind our people what their fantastic fundraising goes towards.
