Challenge win helps West Norfolk Mind

The winners of last year’s Vancouver Quarter Business Challenge have presented their prize cheque to the West Norfolk Mind charity.

Staff at King’s Lynn-based Studio20a took the honours after accumulating the most points in a variety of challenges over the year. The company, which has a Tuesday Market Place base, specialises in design, photography and film and beat a team from Ward Gethin Archer into second place.

Teams from Boots and Wilko finished in joint third place and the events ranged from a pancake race  to  a giant buzz wire contest – all held in the Vancouver Quarter.

“The challenges were a great opportunity to have a laugh and spend some time together outside of work. We had fun and the events were run excellently, the fact we have been able to make a donation to charity means a lot to all of us,” said Gavin Caney of Studio20a.

A donation of £150 has been presented to the chosen charity in the Vancouver Quarter by members of the winning team.

“As a retailer it can be difficult to get out during the day, but the challenges offered entertainment and the chance to talk to each other while raising money,” said Vancouver Quarter manager Abbie Panks.

“We would like to congratulate Studio20a on the team’s success in last year’s Business Challenge and are delighted that they have chosen to support West Norfolk Mind,” said Zena Penty, volunteer co-ordinator at the charity.
