Vent your fury - Prosperity Day - 24.7.2015
On July 24th 2015, there are going to be two unique ways to raise money for charity, have a huge amount of fun whilst enabling corporates to vent their fury by settling a score in public, in safety and all for a brilliant cause – Prosperity Day.
Well, there are two sorts of winners over the course of the day. Firstly, our chosen pan Island Charities, we are aiming to raise £24,700 over the course of the day which will be split equally:
Secondly, we want people to ‘Vent their fury’ and use the Virtual Races that will be held on Turbo Trainers in the centre of Broad Street, St Helier, as an opportunity to settle corporate scores in public and make it to the top of the race podium at the evening awards ceremony at Jersey Museum. There are two ways to gain points:
Race day performance
Charity fund raising (information outlined in your registration pack and at the end of this page)
Who are we looking to compete?
Well for the ‘Figure of gr8′, we are hoping our many friends in Guernsey will participate. You will need to be a keen cyclist as, although this is definitely NOT a race, you will be cycling up to 160km over the course of the day (with a grateful break in the middle). This is being arranged in partnership with our colleagues Cycling Club in Guernsey – https://www.facebook.com/groups/GuernseyRouleursCC/ to register interest (and to start training!)
For the ‘Head to Head to Head’ we are looking at a less ‘intensive’ work out that is designed for corporate participation. Having floated this idea to a few of our clients it looks like three of the six slots are already taken:
- JTC v Aztec v First Names Group
- KPMG v PWC v EY
- Sure v JT v Airtel-Vodafone
So, this is starting to make sense? Starting to worry that there are only a few spaces remaining…?
What is the format of the virtual race? Well below we have highlighted the space we have secured and how we might set up the three virtual racers to ensure public participation yet absolute safety:

For the ‘Head to Head to Head’ please register interest by contacting ‘firstname.lastname@example.org' as a matter of urgency. There are only 18 slots to race available, you will need to pay a registration fee of £500 and a minimum commitment to raise £500 per team is required to ensure we can achieve our donation target.

The rules of the road (how do you win!)*
We intend to have a podium finish on the evening of Friday 24th July at the Museum Brasserie, St. Helier, this will be an opportunity to mingle with other competitors and celebrate in the success of the event.
To win we will have two leader boards where people can score points:
Race performance – based initially on 30 minute heats to confirm the leader board positions, followed by a final, 10 minute race for the top three teams – here you get to put your best racer against the best of your competition, this will enable the following points to be allocated:
1st – 15 points
2nd – 12 points
3rd – 10 points
4th – 9 points
5th – 8 points
Obviously, this is about making a significant charitable contribution so fund raising performance is critical to ensure you win, not race performance alone:
£500 – £999 – 7 points
£1,000 – £1,499 – 8 points
£1,500 – £1,999 – 9 points
£2,000 – £2,499 – 10 points
£2,500 – £3,499 – 11 points
£3,500+ – £4,499 – 13 points
£4,500+ – 15 points
The scores will be combined and the winning teams (1st / 2nd / 3rd ) announced at the Gala event on the evening of Friday 24th July 2015 – the judges decision will be final.
Paid tickets may be available separately, all funds will be combined with monies raised during the day. Tickets will be available on ‘EventBright’ nearer the time.
*We reserve the right to adjust the format of the competition up to two weeks before race day should opportunities arise to generate more charitable donations.
Zero tolerance – We expect competition, healthy competition, however there will be a zero tolerance policy in place in relation to ungentlemanly conduct – any threatening or violent conduct will result in immediate exclusion from the competition.
