Take a hike

Get your boots on and breathe some thin air. If you’re extremely fit you could try the Three Peaks Challenge: Ben Nevis, Snowdon and Scafell Pike in 24 hours.

If you’re like the rest of us (!) you could try something closer to home (and closer to the floor). Why not attempt a local hike in fancy dress, to stand out from the crowd? 

You can set up a fundraising page online and ask all your friends and family to sponsor you before you take on the challenge.

Beat your personal best 

Take advantage of those endless summer days and break some records. Could you beat your personal best for the number of lengths at your local pool? How about your longest ever cycle ride? The most steps in a day on your fitbit? The possibilities are endless – all you need is the sunshine, good friends, and a bucket load of willpower.

Get your friends, family and work colleagues to sponsor you for your bravery. And don’t forget to share the results with us!

Grow a beard

Your wife might not like it. Your friends might not like it. But growing a beard is always a great one for raising money as people are just dying to know what you would look like with a beard… especially if you’ve never given them that privilege before! 

Set up a fundraising page and ask all your friends and family to sponsor you before you take on the challenge.

Head Shave 

Instead of becoming bearded, why not lose your locks to raise money?

Set up a fundraising page to get sponsored and be sure to take a before and after snap!

Quit something

What would your friends pay you to go without for a month? I’m sure you don’t want to give up chocolate again… How about giving up something digital like TV or social media? Or you could delete added sugar from your diet: a difficult task but not without its benefits!

You could ask sponsors to donate £1 for each day that you successfully manage to stay off sugar (or whatever it might be that you’re giving up). If you're giving something up for a month, you could ask for £30 from each sponsor.

Sponsored silence

Maybe it’s time to give up your voice for a good cause? This can be good fun but could also be a chance to invest in your faith, as you find new ways of connecting with God throughout the day.

Ask your friends to donate £1 per day that you stay silent - they'll be keen to see you try if you're known for being a chatterbox!

Now that you’ve selected your challenge(s) for the coming months, you can set up a fundraising page on our website to help you get started collecting money.
