The Centrica Lakes Challenge is a unique fundraising event organised exclusively for Centrica employees, taking place from Friday 18 June to Monday 21 June in the heart of the English Lake District. Up to 39 teams of seven will take part in a variety of mental and physical challenges across the weekend. The aim of the event is to bring teams together from across the Centrica network, but also to raise almost £200,000 for Cancer Research UK.
RIBnet member Mike Burns (aka Mike B) is entering and several other members have generously offered items for a fundraising auction. You can see the original discussion here

All money raised from the auction will go to Cancer Research UK (registered Charity 1089464)
