Thank you

A big thank you to everyone who participated and supported in this year’s £10k board challenge. It has been a challenging year and more difficult than ever to spend time planning, engaging and carrying out activities for the bear.

In spite of this, we witnessed great enthusiasm from everyone who took part and managed to cycle, run, canoe, sail, fly, space hop and bake our way to raise a grand total of:


Your efforts are greatly appreciated and are a key element to us getting such an incredible result. As well as our Kier Foundation charity partner Alzheimer’s Society, we will be sending cheques to the Huw Thatcher Trust, Manchester Children's hospital, Samaritans, Kidscan Children’s Cancer Research, Macmillan Cancer Support, Air Ambulance Cornwall, Air Ambulance Devon and Serv Blood Bikes.

 This year we have:

  • smashed our target of £10,000 
  • engaged over 150 of our staff
  • travelled over 1,400 miles – mainly by bike, foot, boat or space hopper 
  • volunteered over 1,000 hours 
  • used BIM to track the bear 

A great result has been bringing the Infrastructure and Utilities teams closer together.

Congratulations Huge congratulations to our Capenhurst site who have raised the most money (£3,745) and who will be receiving the much coveted trophy to proudly display.

Prize winners have been selected and their prizes are currently being delivered. This year there was such a great effort that we felt we had to award more than one prize in some categories. 

Congratulations to all our winners and thank you again to everyone who supported, donated and took part in making this challenge a great success.

Hopefully you’ve all met someone new, done something different, learnt something and had a little fun along the way!
