We have five trophies up for grabs!

Best Soapbox
Cover it with your team/company logo, make it bright and bold. We have had pirate ships, horses, Del Boy's Robin Reliant, police riot vans and a bat mobile! The only thing limiting you is your imagination!

Best Presentation    
To go with your soapbox we need a dance! Choose your music and show us your moves!

Fastest Time
There is a trophy for the fastest soapbox. Is it the heaviest soapbox, the lightest soapbox, the best driver...only your time will tell!

Best fundraiser
We hope our teams will also fundraise alongside building their soapboxes. Read below to see how your money will make a difference to the community of west Suffolk.

Overall Champion
What do points make...trophies! Our overall champion trophy will be awarded to the team who scored the most points in all the catergories.
2019 saw Sudbury Round Table take the trophy. As overall winners they are invited back to defend their title. Let's see what 2020 brings.



As we said above, we hope our teams will also fundraise for My WiSH Charity and help us make a difference to patients, their loved ones and staff at West Suffolk NHS Foundation Trust. The team that raises the most will win the Best Fundraiser trophy and also points for that coveted Overall Champion trophy.

2019 saw £19,500 raised for our Butterfly Appeal which is just incredible. To read more about the appeal click here.

This year the Soapbox will be the finale to our #25 appeal which celebates our 25th birthday. Do take a look at the appeal page to find out what it's all about.



It is FREE to watch our Soapbox Challenge! More details to follow in due course.


Soapbox City

Based at the Priory School, Soapbox City houses all the soapboxes so you can see them in all their glory and talk to the teams.

Each team has a promotional stand so it's a great opportunity to showcase your club/organisation or company. Your soapbox will be here before and during the races too which means you can show off your handy work, compare notes with other teams or, if your soapbox is really amazing, just prove to everyone how clever you all are!

Food and drink will also be available in this area.
