The 250 Challenge

We need 250 people to raise £250 – could you be one of them?

The 250 challenge will run for 250 days, however, it can take as much or as little of this time as is needed. The challenge will finish at the end of the summer, in time for us to settle down and watch Strictly and I’m A Celebrity!

The challenge launched on January 15th. This date is significant for us, as if the money we receive via government funding started on New Year’s Day, it would run out by the 14th. From this point onwards, we rely on the generosity of the local community and private funders to keep our doors open for the 1,900 families that will turn to us for help in 2020.

Pledge your support today by filling out the form below, emailing or giving the team a call on 0114 275 4070.

What could I do…?

Cake Break

Holding a Cake Break is an easy (and delicious) way to bring family, friends or coworkers together, all whilst raising money for Cavendish. Simply buy or bake some tasty treats, and hold a cake break with friends, family or coworkers. Ask for a donation in return for a cake, and donate the proceeds to Cavendish.

Cycle Ride

On your bike!

A sponsored cycle ride is a great way to improve your fitness, enjoy beautiful scenery, and raise money for Cavendish. It’s a great challenge for a team or to do solo.

Run a Race

Join #TeamCav and challenge yourself to a race – whether it’s a 5k, 10k, half or full marathon!

Running a race is a great way to get fit and fundraise in the process.
