New UK Challenges – Winter Season 20/21

June 1, 2020

Charity Challenge has been supporting charities to raise millions of pounds for over 20 years. The Covid-19 pandemic has created unprecedented difficulties across every sector of the UK economy. The charity sector in particular is estimated to lose £4billion in income

We have had numerous conversations with charities since the outbreak of coronavirus and, having listened to their needs, we are proud to be launching a new series of UK Charity Challenge events this winter season to support them, including NHS charities, in their time of need. Now is the time we all need to come together.

And just for you, we have launched £1 registration fees on selected challenges!

Challenge yourself to complete this classic UK trekking challenge, but with a twist! 38km trek at night to summit the Yorkshire Three Peaks – Ingleborough, Whernside and Pen Y Ghent. Start as the sun sets, and aim to reach the final peak as the sun begins to rise.

What precautions are Charity Challenge taking to prevent the spread of infection on their challenge events?

Our challenge events team are taking this issue extremely seriously, so you can be assured that on all of our upcoming challenges we will be launching new Standard Operating Procedures – Covid-19 Response, detailing measures we will be putting in place :

  • BEFORE the challenge
  • DURING the challenge
  • After THE CHALLENGE

At Charity Challenge safety is our primary concern, and at times like this the well-being of our colleagues, challengers, leaders and partners is more important than ever. 

Covid 19 Assurance

Please rest assured that if Charity Challenge cannot operate a challenge in the UK due to legal restrictions around Covid-19, we will offer you a number of options including:

  • The chance to postpone your challenge to a later departure this year
  • The chance to join any other Charity Challenge trip either UK or overseas (please see information regarding differences in challenge costs below)

Please note there are no admin fees to either postpone or change challenges, should we be forced to cancel your existing challenge due to legal restrictions around Covid-19.

If you cannot make an alternative date set for your challenge, and there are no other challenges within our entire portfolio that you would like to move on to, you will be entitled to transfer your place to someone else and we will waive any administration costs (as mentioned in our terms and conditions). 

We hope the above information provides some support, but if you have any further questions please do not hesitate to get in touch.
