The battle of the builders is set to kick off at the Advertiser Cracker Challenge as Berkeley Homes and Shanly go head-to-head.
The Berkeley Homes team, led by senior land manager, Caroline McHardy is hoping to bring back gold and beat their rivals.
The annual competition, to be held at the Magnet Leisure Centre on Wednesday, December 14, sees teams from a host of businesses and organisations go head-to-head in a range of events, including an inflatable assault course, pillow wars and dart tag.
Caroline said: “It’s our first time entering the Cracker challenge; we found out about the event in the paper and thought we would give it a go.
"It’s a great way to get to meet some new people and get in the festive spirit.
"We couldn’t resist the opportunity to knock Shanly off the top spot!
"We have recently become more involved within the Royal Borough due to our Taplow Riverside development and other projects including our aspirations to become RBWM’s new development partner regenerating Maidenhead.
"We also think it is a worthwhile cause and a great team building activity which will also get us in the Christmas spirit."
The team will include Caroline, Sean Watson, Simon Martin, Ian Saunderson, Danny Smith, Douglas Fearon, Dominique Dron, Frederick Hill, Alex Burrows, Daniel Coulon and Sellasie Humado.
Members have been preparing by joining the weekly running club to make sure they are in their best shape.
The money raised is used to fund the Advertiser’s Cracker Appeal, which pays for Christmas parties and trips for pensioners’ clubs and shel-tered housing schemes in and around Maidenhead, as well as other groups working with children.
Last year’s appeal raised £10,408, which helped 37 organisations and 2,220 people.
The cost to enter in £100 per team of up to 10 competitors and £50 per table for the post-contest buffet and quiz.
