There are hundreds of open challenge events for you to get involved in if you’re feeling adventurous. Why not choose to do a challenge for SARSAS. For the more adventurous Charity Challenge have lots of open events that you can get involved in (they would need to be Self Funded). For those who wish to stay closer to home why not try an abseil, join a cycle sportive or enter a team in a dragon boat race!

Clothes swaps, raffles, bake sales and music fundraisers can be a great way of fundraising as well as being fun for you. Before you start, think about what you want to do, plan the event and try to get others on board to share the workload. Get in touch with us too – we may be able to help!

- How will it raise money?

- What costs are involved?
