The foundation, the independent charitable arm of the Metropolitan Police, has launched the Safer London Charity Challenge to encourage team-building and raise cash. Recruited teams will be given a week to triple a stake of £12,500. Each team will be able to put their money to work in whatever reasonable and legal way they like.
The foundation is recruiting teams from companies to take part in the event, to be held next February. Each team must underwrite their £12,5000 donation.
Tony Shepherd, chief executive of the Safer London Foundation, said: "We already act as a broker between major corporates and grass-roots crime reduction projects, and this seemed to be an exciting and engaging way to develop relationships with other big businesses based in London."
