New Year! New challenges & events programme
A Staffordshire based children’s charity is urging those who have made a New Year’s resolution to consider one if its many fundraising challenges, or events, to ensure that they don’t break their New Year declaration.
Caudwell Children has an exciting programme of sport, fitness and endurance challenges together with a packed calendar of corporate events that will see people running, cycling, climbing and walking across the UK, Africa, South America and the USA, or enjoying glitzy lunches and glamorous balls throughout England and Europe in 2019.
Charity bosses say it’s a New Year and a new era for the charity having recently moved into their state of the art new home, the Caudwell International Children’s Centre, the UK’s first independent purpose-built facility dedicated to providing multi-disciplinary assessment, support and research of neurodevelopmental conditions, including autism.
“We’re at an incredibly exciting point in the charity’s history,” said Kerrie Davies, Associate Director of Events at Caudwell Children. “Our superb new facility, on Keele University’s Science and Innovation Park, will enable us to support even more disabled children from across the UK.
“However, in order to do this we need the continued support of the public so we’re urging them to check out what we have lined up this year and register for an event or challenge of their choice.
“If you’ve vowed to get fit and run a marathon, or have the experience of a lifetime, in 2019, then we’re sure to have something for you.”
The list of experiences on offer includes: An Inca Trail Trek, a walk across the Sahara Desert, a cycle ride from Vietnam to Cambodia, a variety of UK treks and walks including the Yorkshire Three Peaks and the National Three Peaks challenges, Wing Walks and Skydives.
“If challenges aren’t for you then you could enjoy fine dining and world class entertainment at our annual Butterfly Ball in London,” explained Kerrie. “We also have regional Ladies Lunches where ticket holders enjoy an exclusive afternoon of fashion, food, beauty and entertainment.”
Kerrie says that committing to one of the charity’s challenges will not only contribute to the fitness of an individual but will also raise much needed funds to support disabled children.
Whilst some of the charity’s challenges require an intensive training regime some require little preparation, ensuring that every ability is catered for.
Caudwell Children has also created a weekly lottery with guaranteed weekly prizes and a top prize of a whopping £25,000 up for grabs.
“One thing for sure is that every step, and every peddle pumping mile, or every lottery ticket bought will raise cash to support the specialist equipment, short breaks, therapies, treatments and Family Support Service that we provide to disabled children and their families.”
