Snail Selfie Challenge Completed!

27th September 2018

Congratulations to all teams involved in yesterday’s Snailfie Challenge!

It was a great day and a fantastic amount of money has been raised for Martlets Hospice!

10 teams signed up to take part in a 2 hour Snail Selfie (Snailfie!) Challenge on Wednesday 26 September – the event was once again blessed with glorious sunshine and the teams arrived at their starting point, Paisley No. 26, raring to go!

After the Selfie Challenge in 2016, it was apparent that the returning teams had done their homework and were armed with their route maps!

A team from Martlets and Griffith Smith LLP made their way over Brighton Pier to start the fun task of tallying the selfies as they came in!! This time around the team were much better prepared, iPhones were charged and tally charts prepared!

Snailfie’s were coming in thick and fast from the teams, nobody was hanging around! The competition was on!

It was a close competition and The Caxton Arms were the first team back to the finishing location, Horatios Bar on Brighton Pier. The teams were all back by the 5pm deadline!

A massive thanks to Brighton Pier who put on a brilliant feast of Fish & Chips and some much needed refreshments – as the teams tucked in, the team from Martlets and Griffith Smith got work on the top 3 teams!

  • 3rd place The Caxton Arms with 31 snailfies!
  • 2nd place Cardens Accountants with 33 snailfies!
  • And a tie break situation for 1st with Graves, Son & Pilcher and Plus Accounting both with 34 snailfies! 

Griffith Smith did themselves proud and took an impressive 30 selfies during the 2 hour Challenge and came a very respectable mid table position!

The winning team was decided with a tie break question and the closest team won!

‘How many metres per hour does a snail travel?’

Plus Accounting were crowned champions and received a prize kindly donated by Brighton Hilton Metropole, Bottomless Brunch for 6 people – so enjoy!

Congratulations to all the teams involved today who managed to raise over £2,500 for the Snailspace campaign and a special shout out to Sophie Dabirraji who was part of the Griffith Smith  team and managed to raise individually over £500!!
