About the Challenge
Following from the success of last year’s Scrabble Challenge we will see corporate teams and individuals going head to head on the scrabble board to take out the prestigious “Scrabble™ Challenge Cup 2016”. It will be a night of fun and brainpower mixed with delicious canapes and drinks. The evening will take place at the Parliament House, a beautiful historic location in the heart of the city.
The ever charming and witty James Valentine, (author, journalist, musician, radio and television presenter) will be our special guest MC for the evening, making it a night you won’t forget!
This event is a fantastic team building exercise and fun night out with your colleagues and friends. It is also a great way to entertain business clients, as well as networking with new organisations – all to raise funds for a great cause, improving literacy and numeracy for disadvantaged children with learning disabilities and difficulties through services provided by Learning Links.
