Win FA Cup Final tickets with the BEKO 'Keepy Uppy Challenge'

Beko challenge

A new  fundraising campaign from our corporate partner BEKO has seen hundreds of budding Beckhams show off their football skills for Barnardo’s.

The ‘Keepy Uppy Challenge’ is encouraging people of all ages and abilities to upload a video of their ‘top tekkers’ to raise money for the UK’s most vulnerable children. For each video submitted, the home appliances brand will donate £1 to our work.

The initiative is being supported by ‘Keepy Uppy’ champion Dan Magness, who managed to keep a football bouncing for an impressive 26 hours. Dan holds the Guinness World Record for his efforts, so he is the perfect celebrity to promote the competition. Participants are in with the chance of winning some fabulous prizes, including FA Cup tickets.

Beko has been our charity partner since 2013, and is aiming to raise £50,000 this year. Allan McLaren, Deputy Director of Fundraising at Barnardo's, said: "By teaming up with Barnardos, Beko has made a very public investment in helping us to protect the future of Britain’s most disadvantaged children, something we whole-heartedly welcome.

Our partnership with Beko will support children and families in projects across the UK. Together we can help turn around the lives of the UK's most vulnerable children, giving them hope for the future."

The closing date for entries is April 21 2014.
