Kärcher Accumulator Challenge logo square

With a £50 kick start from Kärcher, how much money can you raise for Katharine House Hospice? 

The Kärcher Accumulator Challenge is really simple: We give your business, college, school or community group £50 - you see what you can turn it in to between now and February!

We've raised almost £40K since we started the Challenge in 2014, and last year was our most successful year to date; Last year you raised almost £14,000 through cake sales, Christmas fairs, raffles, origami baskets, football matches and more. Our reigning champions are Kineton High School who raised an incredible £2,865 – can you beat them?

Taking part in the Accumulator Challenge is a great way to encourage team work and creative thinking, while raising money for a fantastic cause.


The 2018 Challenge is on!

The challenge is open to schools, colleges, businesses and community groups. Each category has two awards to be won, along with a special prize from Kärcher.

1 October 2018 - Official start of challenge and £50 sent to teams
15 February 2019 - Official end of challenge
Mid-March 2019 - Awards evening (date to be confirmed)
