Apprentice Style Task – DONE!

Rebecca Garrett set an apprentice style challenge for the team to complete today, team members were split into two teams;

Team A: Jonathan Hick, Kirsty Miragliotta, Jordan Thomas & Liz Challice

Team B: Georgie Weeks, Kate Allen, Mel Strudwick & Ashley Rodwell

Each team were given £200, the challenge was to make as much profit as possible and the winning team got to split the profit between them, the challenge kicked off at 10am and the deadline was 2pm, simples.

Team A Secured a £50 voucher which was kindly donated by Frankie & Benny’s and ran a raffle to win this voucher, along with a car wash at a local residential home to earn extra cash.

Team B shot off to the local supermarket and bought a basket full of Easter goodies, wine and beer, creating a hamper worth £42 and ran a raffle to win the hamper.

Both teams went from office to office at the Plymouth Science Park, asking local residents if they would like to purchase a ticket and be in with the chance of winning, the results were great!

Team A made a profit of £125 and Team B made a total profit of £218.06, making Team B the winners.

Even better, both teams opted at the start to donate any profits to a charity close to their hearts, Team A Chose to donate the money towards “Cef The Piper” who is raising money by walking 22 miles whilst playing the bagpipes along the coastal path from Looe to Plymouth for St. Luke’s Hospice (you too can donate here)

Team B opted to donate their profit’s to Macmillan Cancer Support 

A huge thank’s to the Plymouth Science Park and local businesses and their employee’s for allowing us to come into their offices today and for their incredible generosity.

The winner of the £50 Frankie & Benny’s gift voucher is Amanda from St. James’s Lodge and a huge congratulations to Amy from South West Care Homes who was the lucky winner of the Easter Hamper!

A Huge congratulations to Team B who made the most profit and won the challenge!
