Operations Fundraising Challenge 2019

The Ops Fundraising Challenge is back for 2019. This year, we’re looking to beat the total from the last challenge, but we can’t do it without you!

'The Ops Fundraising Challenge is a great way for everyone in our operation to rally behind an amazing cause. The Blues Programme, which the money we raise will fund, will support around 8,000 young people across the UK, helping those who suffer from or at risk of developing mental health conditions, such as depression.

'I have always been amazed at the generosity and community spirit our people show when needed,' said senior community investment manager, Gary Grange. 'The Ops Fundraising Challenge is a great way to build team spirit and learn new skills. So please get involved, have fun and help us support Action for Children and the Blues Programme'.

What's new for 2019?

1) This year, the Ops Fundraising Challenge has moved from a March start to a May start. Again, teams will have three months to raise as much as they possibly can up to and including the last day of July.
