Some of our challenges are exclusively in aid of one particular charity, but where you see the words “in aid of any charity”, you can raise funds for any cause that you feel passionate about, as long as they are a UK or Irish registered charity, and they authorise you to fundraise in their name. We will help get the authorisation for you to fundraise, so choose from one of the many charities on our database, or if you don’t find them listed, you can give us some contact details when you book and we’ll get in touch with them and get them listed on the site.

The Birdshot Uveitis Society (BUS) is a registered charity that offers support and practical advice and aims to educate the general public and health professionals about this rare, hard to treat, autoimmune form of posterior uveitis. The aims of the Birdshot Uveitis Society are to: • Support people diagnosed with Birdshot Uveitis and their friends and family members. • Provide information for healthcare professionals and patients.• Raise awareness of Birdshot Uveitis. • Raise funds to enable us to expand our support network and information base and to undertake research, where appropriate.

Brain tumours present a life changing experience. Current treatment involves Surgery, plus a combination of Chemotherapy, and Radio or Proton Therapy, but each of these have devastating consequences in terms of side effects, both in the short term and over the long term. Research is trying to establish new innovative ways to treat childhood brain tumours, but this requires funding. Blue Skye Thinking is a charity set up to support research and treatment of childhood brain tumours, and to look after the wellbeing of the children and their families, so that all diagnosed, will have a better chance of survival and a better quality of life during and post-treatment. The Charity is run by volunteers and all money donated goes directly to the forefront of research, treatment and wellbeing projects.
