The team at Close Brothers Retail Finance (CBRF) are excited to announce the launch of CBRF 20:20!

What’s CBRF 20:20?

CBRF 20:20 is their supercharged fundraising initiative to target a huge £20k for their chosen charity, Jigsaw4U, in honour of our 20th anniversary. They’re looking to accelerate their fundraising efforts and complete this amazing challenge over the next 100 days culminating in a celebration with the Close Brothers Retail Finance team, retailers, partners and us on the 20th September 2017!

There are lots of activities planned including a Bake-off, Wimbledon Sweepstake, a silent auction and they have secured an incredible CBRF team for the Thames Path Challenge where a team of 30 will take on the challenge to walk 50km or 100km along the Thames.

Ian Field. This will be running until 20th September.


New Wimbledon Theatre

Joe McElderry will make a speech from the stage on August 19 and they will then have collection buckets. Flyers have been designed and they will put them out and continue to collect for the next week of performances.


Abseil Down the Orbit

Just the 115 metres for this one – vertically from the top of the Orbit at the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park. That’s right, the CBRF Abseil!

Exciting times and it offers a great (and different!) view of London. AND, you can feel good about yourself as you’ll be helping Jigsaw4U and the Close Brothers Retail Finance team fundraise £20k.


If any of our wonderful supporters, friends or volunteers would like to take part in the Orbit

Abseil, the fundraising quiz or anything else that Close Brothers are organising please get in touch!

We’d love to bring the community together for this incredible fundraising challenge.
