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.

Village Water brings safe water, decent toilets and hygiene education to some of the poorest communities in Zambia and Mozambique. These basics help women and girls be more than just water collectors, children go to school; adults provide for their families. Step by step communities can work their own way out of poverty. That’s why we say change begins with safe water. But in fact, it begins with YOU! Take on a challenge for us and you can be confident you’re making a difference. We keep our overheads low, so you know that every penny you raise is being spent in the right place. We don’t do quick fixes. Or handouts. We focus on building skills in Africa so local people can take charge of their water and sanitation and live dignified and independent lives.

We run opticians clinics for homeless people in London, Brighton, Birmingham, Manchester, Exeter and Leeds. Using volunteer optometrists, dispensing opticians and assistants, we provide glasses free of charge to 1,800 homeless people each year. Homeless people are particularly disadvantaged when it comes to obtaining sight tests, glasses and eye care. Around two thirds of homeless people cannot get NHS eye tests and glasses. When people are homeless they need glasses to look for work, find accommodation or simply to keep themselves safe. By fundraising for us you will help more homeless people receive the glasses they need.

Since 1995, The Grand Appeal has raised over £31 million to transform the lives of sick babies and children at Bristol Children’s Hospital and the Special Care Baby Unit, providing life-saving equipment, patient activities, new services and family accommodation. Bristol Children’s Hospital is one of the UK’s leading children’s hospitals treating over 100,000 patients every year from across the South West, South Wales and beyond with life-threatening illnesses and serves as the paediatric intensive care centre for the whole South West region. The hospital is an international, national and regional specialist centre of excellence for a range of services including neurosurgery, burns, cardiac, leukaemia and bone marrow transplants. The Grand Appeal provides ground-breaking facilities at the Hospital, including the South of England’s only 3T MRI scanner and intra-operative scanning suite, which has revolutionised the treatment of children with neurological conditions requiring highly complex surgery and a pioneering Cardiac Hybrid Theatre and Integrated Cancer Unit, meaning a sick child can receive all of their treatment in one place. We also fund arts, music and play programmes and facilities at the Hospital, which play a major role in a child’s recovery and rehabilitation. Arts workshops, dedicated music therapy sessions and school activities all provide opportunities for distraction and wellbeing for hospital patients. The Grand Appeal is committed to keeping families together whilst their child is cared for at the Hospital, having funded over £1 million of family facilities and accommodation at Bristol Children’s Hospital and St Michael’s Hospital’s Special Care Baby Unit. We receive no statutory funding and rely entirely on the generous support of the local community, businesses, grant-making trusts and other philanthropic organisations and individuals for support.
