Emergency Challenge is a fantastic team building and personal development opportunity that also provides the chance to network with other businesses. It’s a completely unique event and directly linked to the rapid response work that Oxfam is renowned for. The money raised will help save lives in real-life emergencies worldwide such as Oxfam’s work around the current crisis in Syria.
Various teams from across the country will be taking part, would you like to be one of them? This would make a great team building exercise for your company or even just a group of friends. All entries must be over 18, and a minimum of £1,600 is the required donation per team, so £400 per man.
