Sums Of Anarchy Take Part in TechnoBreak

TB-charity-2017-1024x1024We love doing our bit to support charities and local businesses.  We also love Tech.

That’s why we decided to take part in TechnoBreak on 30 July with our team Sums of Anarchy.  It’s all for Charity, so it would be really lovely if you’d sponsor us on our JustGiving page 🙂

So what’s it all about?

Do you remember the old JailBreak?  Basically all teams got dropped off somewhere random, with just £1 to get home, any way they could.

Well TechnoBreak is today’s version.  The organisers realised we could get home really easily with today’s technology, so they decided they’d make that part of the challenge!

We will get dropped off in a random location, but will be given a device and challenges to complete.  All whilst being tracked on a huge screen back at the finish line!  What larks!

There is also a Family Festival back at base at The Secret Garden (Coldwells Road, Hereford, previously The Rose Gardens).  The Family Festival is midday til 10pm (let’s hope we’re back by then!).  There’s be plenty going on to keep the whole family entertained, and entrance is free.  Like Radio will be broadcasting and there’ll be loads to do, eat and drink (and free wifi).

What’s It In Aid Of?

TechnoBreak asked locals to vote for their favourite local and national charities, and the chosen charities are:

Strong Young Minds (run by The CLD Trust)

Strong Young Minds is a Big Lottery funded project designed to improve the mental health & wellbeing of young people in Herefordshire aged between 10 and 24 years of age.  Strong Young Minds work with young people to address issues which can have an adverse effect on their mental health and wellbeing, such as anxiety, depression, eating disorders, self harm, bullying, cyber-bullying, relationship breakdown, employability, low self esteem, body image and loss.

Home-Start

There are 260 local, independent Home-Starts, including Hereford.  At the heart of each Home-Start’s work is home visiting volunteer support.  Families struggling with post-natal depression, isolation, physical health problems, bereavement and many other issues eceive the support of a Home-Start volunteer who will spend around 2 hours a week in a family’s home, supporting them in the ways they need.

What Can You Do?

We would love it if you sponsored us – it doesn’t matter what amount, as every little helps.  Everything we raise goes straight to the above two amazing Charities.  Here’s our Just Giving page.

And why don’t you sign up your own 4 person team?

You can come along to the Family Festival and await our return.
