Charity Challenge Events


From running a marathon to swimming the channel, every year people take on incredible challenge events while fundraising sponsorship money for charity. If you’re planning on being one of those people, we’d love to hear from you!

Do you have an idea for a sponsored event you’d like to do on behalf of Hft?

There are lots of fantastic charity challenges to take on, both here in the UK or in exotic locations all over the world. Why not create your own challenge and have an incredible experience, raising sponsorship money for Hft at the same time?

A few ideas to consider…

  • Skydive
  • Run a marathon
  • Compete in a Triathlon
  • Get muddy on an Obstacle course
  • Cycling Events – Grab a bike and take on the challenge
  • Take part in one of our overseas challenges
  • Swimming Challenge – make a splash for Hft
  • Walking and Trekking
  • Or make up your own charity challenge – anything is possible!

If you’d like more information on these events, have an idea of your own or are already organising your own overseas sponsored challenge, please email Challenges@hft.org.uk or complete our Contact us form for more info on how we can support you.

By taking on a challenge for Hft you’ll be helping us fund charitable projects such as our Family Carer Support Service (FCSS), Luv2meetU, Personalised Technology and many more! These are just some of the ways we support learning disabled people and their families.  It’s what we do. And this is why your fundraising is so important to us.

When you join #TeamHft you’ll receive:

  • a Hft welcome pack
  • Regular emails with support and fundraising tips
  • A Certificate of Appreciation at the end of your event and a huge thank you from all of us at Hft!
