RBH takes on finger lickin’ good challenge to raise money for local charity

In less than one week, RBH will be competing in The Great KFC Treasure Hunt to raise money for its charity partner, Young People First.
On Tuesday 24 September, RBH will be raising money for Young People First, a Warwickshire-based charity that aims to catch vulnerable young people before they fall. The agency will go head to head with leading Warwickshire homebuilder, A.C. Lloyd Homes, to see who can visit the most KFC restaurants in the West Midlands.

The challenge will see teams of four working together to visit up to 70 KFC restaurants, in just seven hours, using only public transport.

The KFC Foundation launched in 2019 and selected Young People First as its West Midlands charity and since then the foundation has raised £28,000 for the charity.

David Skoppek, chief officer of Young People First, said: “We have received incredible support from KFC staff across the region and we thought this would be a great way to get out there and say thank you.

“We would like to thank A.C. Lloyd and RBH for getting on board and supporting this, for what is definitely going to be a big challenge.

“The teams won’t have to eat in every store! But it will take a lot of planning and teamwork, and I can already tell there is a great competitive spirit between the two teams.”

RBH founder, Debra Hepburn, added: “We’re proud to be working with Young People First again and continuing our relationship with the charity.

“We hope that the challenge will continue to raise the profile of the brilliant work the charity does in supporting vulnerable young people.”

Young People First is based in Leamington Spa and provides long-term support to young people who have been in care, or are at risk of entering the care system, to help them integrate with society happily and successfully.
