GCW’s band of brave warriors have battled it out in this year’s Elifar Challenge. A team of 6 and non-playing captain went head-to-head with 15 other teams of property professionals to raise money for children’s charity, the Elifar Foundation.
The Elifar Foundation, is a charity close to GCW’s heart which aims to help improve the lives of children and young adults with severe learning difficulty and associated physical disability. Its annual challenge day has been running since 1999, attracting teams from across the property industry to compete for the coveted trophy.
In June, GCW joined its property peers to raise around £50,000 for the charity by participating in a gruelling array of mental and physical challenges. The team came away with a respectable 6th place after a fun-packed day of events including three-legged football, tug of war and human battleships.
The Challenge is a fantastic day out, offering great opportunities for teambuilding and a relaxed networking day with people from across the property industry. The funds raised helps the foundation carry out invaluable work supporting disabled children and young adults by funding the purchase of wide range of highly specialised equipment, which would otherwise by unavailable because of the lack of funds or because there is no statutory provision.
GCW Director and Elifar Challenge team captain, Philippe Micheal, said: “We are proud to have helped raise so much money for this fantastic cause. We all had great fun on the day, testing bodies and minds and enjoying spending time with our colleagues across the industry. We have supported the charity for a number of years, organising annual fundraising challenges from cycling to kayaking and are explo ring ideas for our next endeavour.”
