Hft | the 1.4 challenge | No limits, get creative, have fun

the 1.4 challenge

The 1.4 challenge can be anything that works for you. You can run or walk 1.4 miles, skip for 1.4 minutes, dance for 14 minutes, make 14 Valentine’s Day cards or if you love cooking, invite 14 people to attend a virtual ‘Come Dine with Me’ – do anything you like!

This is a challenge for all ages and abilities – we just want you to get active, have fun and support Hft. There are no limits on what you can do, so get creative!

All profit from Hft’s 1.4 challenge will go towards ensuring the ongoing safety and wellbeing of people with learning disabilities and autism we support.

Thank you for choosing to support and raise money for Hft. We can’t wait to see what your 1.4 is!

Your gift of £20 could help someone access our Luv2meetU friendship service, helping them make friends, be part of a community and have more choice in life.


Your gift of £30 can help someone communicate. Big button communication aids can be set up to make common phrases just a button press away, for example “please can I have a cup of tea” or “please can you open the curtains”.


Your gift of £50 could help fund personalised technology such as bed sensors, or fingerprint locks, which can help someone to live independently in their own home.
