Celebrating 140 Years

Celebrating 140 Years

Autumn 2023
During Autumn 2023 we will be celebrating our 140th anniversary with a number of events and activities for children and young people to get involved with

140 Monopoly Challenge

On the weekend leading up to our 140th birthday celebrations we will be running a Monopoly Challenge event in multiple locations across England and Scotland.

Based on the Monopoly Board, teams of 3-6 persons will take on the challenge of visiting as many properties as possible in your chosen city.

The event is for the Company and Seniors age groups and will take place on Saturday 30th September in the cities of Aberdeen, Glasgow, London and Manchester.

Juniors 140 Sleepover

We’re inviting Juniors across the country to hold a sleepover on the evening of Saturday 7th October.

We’ll be designing a special interactive programme for the sleepover which will help to connect your event up with the rest of the country as we come together for this special event.

Those groups who sign up to hold a sleepover will receive a goodie bag for the event, to support you in putting on a sleepover to remember! This will include a programme of activities that will allow you to interact and compete with the hundreds of other Juniors taking on the same challenges.

Anchors 140 Challenge

Anchors can get involved with our 140th celebrations by taking part in our ‘140 Challenge’.

During October 2023, we will be tasking Anchors to create the number ‘140’ in the most creative and impressive way possible. This could be using Papier- mâché, recycling items, Lego bricks, arts & crafts materials, food items etc. The more creative and unique the better!

140 Event Badges

Those who participate in one of these activities will be eligible to apply for a special 140 Event Badge for the respective activity.
