Berkeley Foundation, Battle of the boutiques

Battle of the Boutiques

26th February 2015

Event - Battle of the boutiques

On the 26th February 2015, two teams of six from St James London South oversaw the running of two of Rainbow Trust's charity shops for the day. The shops that took part were Leatherhead and Cheam and the teams went head to head on sales.

The teams arrived at the shops for a prompt 9:30am start, and were handed responsibility for the shops for 7 hours. In this time, they competed in various challenges including creating window displays, sales of a stock drive of items Berkeley staff have brought in themselves, online fundraising and the Shop Manager's Surprise Challenge. Each task was allocated a number of points and the team with the most point was crowned winner; the Leatherhead team won with 1,482 point compared to the Cheam team's 1,070 points. Members of each team were also tasked with fundraising outside the shop and generating interest by wearing Rainbow Characters costumes. The event raised £3,678 for Rainbow Trust and was match funded to the Foundation by the Berkeley Group.
