Our Challenges

We’ve put together a calendar of sponsored physical challenges and sporting and social events to help us reach our target, and created a GoFundMe page as a central fundraising platform.

As well as office-based fundraising activities there are plenty of opportunities for clients, suppliers, fellow marketing professionals and other backers to get involved.

Cycling challenge

In February, our first major challenge saw 10 team members aiming to cycle a combined 1,500 miles in 15 working days 🚴

The miles were completed in the gym, at home and on the road - and we reached our goal early!

Highland canoe challenge

What an adventure! In June, Andy and Gary King (of Tendo) took part in a 54-mile canoe challenge across Lochs Arkaig, Lochy and Oich in the Scottish Highlands. That’s more than two marathon lengths of paddling!

Total Warrior

In July six of our A-team took on the mighty Total Warrior challenge. They fought through 12 gruelling kilometres of fire, ice, water and mud, in one of the UK’s biggest obstacle course events … and we smashed it!

Supporting our community and charities that are close to our team's hearts has always been a focus of Ascensor.

We’ve got to 15 years thanks to our hard work, team and customer focus and this initiative is all about raising money and giving back, whilst having fun in the process.

Team meeting about us

Five amazing causes

Whether it’s fundraising or providing pro bono and subsidised services, we actively encourage our team to support causes that are close to their hearts.

The money we raise over the next year will be split equally between the five charities, each of which holds personal significance to members of the Ascensor team.

The Alzheimer's Society funds research into the cause, cure, care and prevention of dementia; Macmillan Cancer Support offers emotional, practical, physical and financial support for people living with cancer; Yorkshire Air Ambulance provides a life-saving emergency service to five million people across the county; the Stroke Association works to prevent stroke and campaigns for the rights of stroke survivors and Simon on the Streets is an independent Leeds charity helping the homeless and vulnerable.
