Events

Are you considering a fundraising event or looking for a challenge? Why not get sponsored to do something adventurous and raise funds to support people with disabilities achieving their own challenges?

Whether you want to tick an item off your bucket list or complete a challenge with your family, friends or work colleagues, challenges provide you with the opportunity to push your own boundaries and create lasting memories. The choices are endless, you can decide to run, cycle or trek, or take on a hair-raising skydive – we’d love to hear from you.

You may also have ideas of your own and may wish to organise your own fundraising challenge event. We can offer fundraising packs, sponsorship forms and fundraising advice, if needed. Please call to discuss your ideas with the fundraising team on 017687 72255 or email fundraising@calvertlakes.org.uk

Although we do not organise any overseas challenges ourselves, there are lots of companies who host open overseas fundraising challenges, including Action Challenge and Global Adventure Challenges.
