Do you have what it takes? 

The London Market Shop Challenge in partnership with The Insurance Insider is a fantastic team building day which will bring together brokers and carriers from across the industry in a day of friendly competition.
 
We challenge you to raise as much money as you can over a set period of weeks and to generate stock before spending a day in a Scope shop. The money raised, together with the value of stock donated, will be added to the shop’s takings for the day - and the team with the highest total will win the London Market Shop Challenge! 

How it works:

You will be going head to head with company teams from the London Market putting your entrepreneurial, marketing, sales and leadership skills to the test by taking over a Scope shop for a day.
 
While you're there you'll be competing against each other to see who can gain the greatest increase in sales, foot-fall and local awareness, and ultimately win the title of London Market Shop Challenge Champions 2016! 
 
In the run up to the event we’ll be there to co-ordinate the event and support teams with top tips to make the day a huge success.
 
  • Your team will have approximately six weeks to plan how to raise as much money as possible, what activity you want to run in the shop to increase footfall and takings, and to collect items to donate to your shop.
  • You can use this time to arrange big fundraisers in the office, to get in touch with local businesses to publicise your shop “takeover” day or contact suppliers and partners for auction or tombola prizes to draw a crowd - we have plenty of ideas to help you on your way.
  • During the day, you have free reign to set up the shop how you want, sort stock, talk to customers and volunteers, as well as run promotional activities to try and increase the overall revenue.
  • Teams can be made up of 5 to 6 people, with the option of swapping members at lunch time so that more people can get involved.
  • After the challenge day we’ll calculate which team raised the most overall and reveal the winners at this year’s Insurance Insider Honours in September!

Why take part?

The London Market Shop Challenge is an exciting opportunity to work collaboratively with your colleagues, competing against brokers and carriers from across the industry, whilst also having positive impact within the local community and sharing skills with our volunteers, many of whom are disabled.
 
To add to the excitement, the winning team will pick up its trophy at The Insurance Insider Honours in September 2016 with full editorial support and plenty of publicity.

By taking part in the Challenge you will also help raise awareness of the work we do to support disabled people. The money raised through fundraising will directly support our services

How to sign up:

We are looking for a £5,000 commitment per team to enter the competition, which will go towards your fundraising total. The Challenge will take place in June 2016 and winners will be presented with a trophy at this year’s Insurance Insider Honours.

We all had a great day - it was hard work at times, but very rewarding. The team were great and the people passing by were all friendly, even if they didn't want to donate. It's wonderful that we managed to raise a good amount of money for Scope!
