Boohoo Group PLC have been named as a sponsor for the eagerly anticipated #AmazingAccrington Soapbox Challenge, which takes place on Saturday 26th August in Accrington Town Centre from 10am-4pm.

Over 15,000 visitors attended the 2022 event, with the beautiful weather and fantastic range of Soapbox entries, making for a tremendous spectacle.

Boohoo Group’s entry into the 2022 race proved extremely popular, with the Boohoo team throwing goodies from their cart on the way down the 170-metre long track.

The course, which includes chicanes, jumps, water blasters and a giant TV screen, is set to be even bigger and better in 2023, with event organisers #AmazingAccrington keen to build on the success and buzz that the event has brought to the town over the years.

There are only limited spaces remaining for this year’s event and all entries can be made online here:

Murray Dawson, Chair of #AmazingAccrington, said: “We are absolutely delighted to welcome Boohoo Group as sponsors for the 2023 Soapbox Challenge.

“Boohoo are one of the biggest employers in East Lancashire and it is great to see them supporting our community event here in Accrington.”

Boohoo’s Engagement and Communications Coordinator, Sophie Clark, said: “Our team really enjoyed being part of the 2022 Soapbox in Accrington, and as a business we were very keen to be involved once again this year.

“It’s an amazing day for the town and our staff can’t wait to not only race in the event, but come and enjoy the event with their families and friends.”
