Host Weekly Challenge: Week 1

We’re excited to kick off our #AtHomeWithHost campaign by presenting to you the Host Weekly Challenge!

Over the coming weeks, we’ll be setting a new challenge every Wednesday for all of our students and followers to attempt. The challenges will be something relatively easy for you to get involved with, but of course, somewhat challenging – after all, it wouldn’t be a challenge if it was too easy. But most importantly, it’s something you’ll definitely want to have a go at if you’re bored!

All you need to do is follow the instructions for the challenge in our weekly blog which will be posted every Wednesday via our News page, or if you follow our social media channels, we’ll post the new challenge there too.

Week 1: Tea Bag Challenge

Watch the video below for details and a demonstration of our first weekly challenge.

It’s over to you

Think you can better our own attempts at the Tea Bag Challenge? Well, we nominate you to take on the challenge and give it a go.

We’d love to see your best (and worst) attempts so share with us via Facebook, Instagram and Twitter using @hoststudentsuk and the hashtag #AtHomeWithHost. Once you’ve completed the challenge, don’t forget to tag a friend and nominate them to do it too!

Think our challenge is too easy? Be creative and make it harder; you could try to header or kick the tea bag into the cup, or how about attempting to throw two tea bags into two separate cups at once? The more creative, the better!

So, reach for your mug, grab your tea bags and get throwing!

Do you have a fun idea for a weekly challenge that we could all try at home? Send us a message on social media and we’ll consider it for future challenges.

#HostEnvironmentalPledge.
Getting serious about the environment we live in.

To become more ‘environmentally friendly’, Host is launching the #HostEnvironmentalPledge campaign to encourage responsible behaviour and drive sustainability across our sites throughout the UK and Ireland.

It’s a simple campaign! If we can reduce our overall utilities (electric, water and gas) consumption by 1% then we will donate £10,000, 2% reduction means £20,000, 3% is £30,000 and so on, to 3 charities; BulliesOut, Planet Patrol and World Land Trust.
