Businesses are competing to win in categories according to the size of their organisation (micro, small, medium and large) and winning organisations will be offered a fantastic donation of £100 to the charity of their choice.

Nominated charities

You can choose to donate all the BetterPoints you have earned through the challenge to a national charity or to a local nominated charity.

For the York Winter Challenge we are supporting the four Lord Mayor of York charities for this year which are St Nicks Trust, York Civic Trust, York LGBT forum, and York Racial Equality Network, as well as York Against Cancer which came top in our social media poll to find York's favourite local charity to support.
