Overseas and UK Charity Challenges
Sponsored dog sledding through the Arctic, trekking through the Sahara Desert, horse riding through rural Rajasthan? If these sound like your sort of challenge then check Classic Tours and Across the Divide for details of these and other activities.
Organise your own event
There are countless ways to raise money for charity. In many cases, the more imaginative you are, the more people will give – but here is a selection of ideas to get you started!
- For foodies: Organise a tea party, dinner party, or wine tasting and ask your friends/colleagues/family for a donation to come along.
- For entertainers: Organise a concert, quiz, party or comedy night - and charge entry.
- For students: Set up a society to raise awareness, organise street collections, go on a jail break (getting sponsored to travel as far as possible, starting out with no money), or organise student union events.
- Fundraising at work: Cake sales, office olympics, dress down day - ask colleagues to donate an hour’s salary.
