#CHALLENGEBEDFORD

On the 5th October 2018, Watton Recruitment launched what they hope to be an annual event, supporting The Kings Arms Project. The day saw local business’s enter teams into a challenge-based event in and around Bedford raising money for this great cause.

The event saw teams start at Pavilion in the Park where several challenges including one involving blindfolds and an other padlocks, took place The teams then headed to in2beats, our local radio station to answer a question live on air. A trip to The Harper Centre followed, with the teams performing a busking task in front of shoppers. The final leg saw the teams race to be the first one back to The Kings Arms on Ampthill Road. All teams had to avoid main roads for all challenges and could gain time penalties if they didn’t follow the social media and mapping tweets!

The Challenges


All the teams really got stuck in and came dressed up and ready to go. A lot of laughs were had and an amazing amount of £4k was raised! Watch this space for this year’s date…

Will Team Wonderwomen keep the title of overall #Challengebedford winners; Team The Honourable Fruitcakes keep up their creative streak and the title for most creative team; and Team Kap Allstars continue to be the winning team for the most money raised? I would like to see some challengers…
