Once again, The Royal Cambridge Hotel will be teaming up with the Arthur Rank Hospice to take part in their annual Accumulator Challenge.

For those not aware of what an Accumulator Challenge is, it’s an innovative way of fundraising where a charity gives £50 to each participant who then has to turn it into as much money as possible. Obviously, all proceeds go back to the charity.

Starting on Monday 1 October and running until the end of the year, each business has 13 weeks to find new and creative ways to generate money from their initial £50 investment.

Stewart Rushton, The Royal Cambridge Hotel’s General Manager said: “It’s great to be working with the Arthur Rank Hospice again and supporting the great work they do in and around the Cambridge area.

“This time of year is always difficult for people to part with their hard-earned money with Christmas on the horizon, which is why the Accumulator Challenge is such a fantastic idea. We’ve been thinking long and hard about what we can do with the aim of beating last year’s total and raising as much money as possible for charity.”

The Arthur Rank Hospice is a charity which supports people in Cambridge who live with a life-limiting illness. Since their first Accumulator Challenge in 2011, the format has raised a massive £87,000 and they are determined to make this a record-breaking year with a fundraising target of £25,000.

Lynn Morgan, Chief Executive of Arthur Rank Hospice said: “We know Cambridgeshire is a bursting at the seams with talented businesses and entrepreneurial minds. We want employers and organisations’ leaders out there to challenge their staff to raise as much as they can. It’s a brilliant opportunity to showcase their talent, boost team morale and of course, raise vital funds for their local hospice.”

Over the coming days and weeks, the team at The Royal Cambridge Hotel will be getting their thinking caps on to think of new ideas to accumulate as much money as possible from the initial £50 investment.
