Rainy Day Trust continues to draw in new business supporters – and launches Junior Apprentice Challenge

While Bryan welcomes the support of large organisations, he is also keen to hear from individuals looking to raise money too. “We have a number of initiatives coming up including a call-out to the younger generation, giving kids the opportunity to raise money via the Junior Apprentice Challenge – to see what they can turn a single £10 from us into by the time they go back to school in September!” The idea is really simple. Rainy Day Trust gives your child aged 11-16 years old, a crisp new £10 note and they have until they go back to school in September to turn into as large

an amount as possible, raising money for the RDT along the way. There’s a prize at the end for whoever returns the largest amount back to the Charity “It’s a great way to keep the kids occupied over the holidays and they can learn the basics of business at the same time,” says Bryan. “How they make their £10 grow is up to them, and is only limited by their imagination. Whatever they do, let us know please how they did it, and that they took the £10 challenge. Post images online, tagging us in with the hashtag #JAT More details from Bryan Clover bryan@rainydaytrust.
