Cap T Charity challenge

Cap Ternay Staff and Volunteers took part in a day of amazing challenges to raise funds and awareness for the Presidents Village children’s home.

The Presidents village children’s home has been the charitable trust for GVI Seychelles for around 3 years, each quarter staff and volunteers organise a fund raising event to help fund the children’s home. 

This February the ‘Cap T Charity challenge’ saw teams race across the island on point scoring missions in the hopes of becoming Cap T Champions!  Each team containing 1 staff member and up to 6 volunteers was given ten hours and a list of over 50 challenges to complete, each challenge earning different points depending on its difficulty.  As the day progressed we saw team members scaling up mountains, leaping over waterfalls and swimming across to islands! Some of the less physical challenges sent team members off on searches for some of the Seychelles rarer inhabitants such as the Giant Tortoise and Scops Owl. The money raised by such events is key in allowing the children to enjoy additional experiences such as a trip away or even providing essentials such as shoes and stationary for school.
