Due to the phenomenal success of the Big Shops’ Showdown in 2018, the Showdown is back for 2019 and we are now accepting registrations.

Last year the Big Shops’ Showdown saw the combined efforts of businesses raise over £52,000 for Cancer Focus Northern Ireland – providing invaluable resources for their work in reducing the impact that cancer has on people’s lives in Northern Ireland.

We’re extremely proud to announce that we will be partnering with Cancer Focus again for 2019.

So, if you and a group of colleagues have entrepreneurial skills, thrive on a creative challenge and enjoy working as part of a team, then this could be the volunteer event of 2019 for you!!

The premise is simple; you’ll take over the running of a charity shop for the day, competing against other teams to promote, manage the shop with the aim to increase sales on the day. The team with the highest percentage sales increase will be announced the winner, however teams will also be judged on other categories such as how they have marketed the shop and used creativity to drive sales.

Don’t just take our word for it, hear what some of the teams from 2018 have to say:

We are currently looking for teams to take part in the following stores:

  • Ballymoney
  • Banbridge
  • Bangor
  • Coleraine
  • Holywood
  • Limavady
  • Lisburn Road, Belfast
  • Newtownards
  • Newtownstewart
  • Ormeau Road, Belfast

A post challenge celebratory event will be held at the Cancer Focus head office in May where winning teams will be announced and prizes awarded.
