Scope is holding a unique charity challenge, where two teams of fundraisers are pitted against each other to see who can increase the profits of a Scope shop in one given day in the Scope Apprentice challenge. To help increase the profits of the shop, we are using tools such as Justgiving and have some great support from generous donors such as the staff at Promotional Products - thank you.
