Franklins £50 Challenge

A prominent legal firm is seeking teams to take part in the Franklins £50 Challenge 2024. 
 
Eight charities from across Milton Keynes and Northamptonshire have been selected to benefit from
the Apprentice-style fundraising challenge, organised by Franklins Solicitors LLP. 
 
Franklins has launched a social media video to encourage teams to join, featuring representatives
from each of the eight charities taking part. Taking inspiration from the opening credits of The
Apprentice, the video demonstrates how the initial £50 seed funding from Franklins can grow into
substantial funds for each charity. 
 
Each team taking part receives £50 and has three months to turn the seed funding into more however
they choose. From cake sales to car washes, sponsored walks to black tie events - the possibilities
are endless. 
 
The 2024 challenge will run from 20 th February to 21 st May with the underlying aim of fighting hunger,
fuelling wellness and changing local lives. Since it began in 2018, the Franklins £50 Challenge has
raised more than £100,000 for local charities, showcasing the potential for collective efforts to bring
about meaningful transformation.  
 
Companies, organisations, associations and clubs are all invited to take part and join up as a team to
raise money for one of the eight charities benefitting this year: Cynthia Spencer Hospice, the Hope
Centre, The Lewis Foundation, Northamptonshire Community Foundation, Willen Hospice, MK Act,
Harry’s Rainbow and YMCA. 
 
Andrea Smith, Partner at Franklins Solicitors, said: “We would really encourage teams to sign up and
take part in this year’s £50 Challenge. Not only does the challenge raise much-needed funds for
charities, it is also an excellent team-building opportunity for those taking part, showing how creative
thinking and teamwork combined can generate incredible results with a long-term impact on the local
community.” 
 
Franklins is encouraging companies and organisations to sign up to take part in the 2024 £50
Challenge. To register as a team visit: www.franklins50.co.uk
