Challenge for Charity

Have you ever fancied doing something completely out of the ordinary, to challenge your inner self? Are your goals realistic and achievable? Do you have an idea that could benefit others and make a difference to the lives of older people?  For many, the answer will be yes, maybe and I think so!

Visit our Virgin Money Giving to register, nominate ExtraCare as your chosen charity, start your challenge and start fundraising for ExtraCare!

We all have different likes and dislikes, that’s what makes us interesting! Sport, music, cooking, extreme challenges, knitting, socialising, swimming, the list is endless. Indoors, outdoors, the great outdoors, up hills and down dales... There's bound to be something to suit even the broadest of tastes.

If running is your passion and you have always wanted to have a go at running in the Virgin Money London Marathon, why not give it a go in support of ExtraCare?

Is there something in your life that you are struggling to find the motivation for? Stopping smoking, losing weight, walking for health... why not challenge yourself and benefit our residents at the same time?

Do you have a big birthday coming up that you want to acknowledge and celebrate, but don’t have the room for any more champagne or whisky glasses? Why not request donations to our own ExtraCare charity?

Every fundraising opportunity could lead to an adventure, something out of the ordinary, but most of all, it should be fun!

These are just some of the options that can be turned into fantastic fundraising activities for ExtraCare by extra special people… you, your family and friends!

If you have an idea, we have the time and would love to hear from you!
