Take on a challenge for Making Space

Challenges image for website

It’s 2023 already and it’s time to think about what we want to achieve this year.

You may want to learn something new, face your fears or finally take on that challenge that you’ve always thought about but not got round to yet.

Achieving one of these goals will give you confidence, a sense of accomplishment and most likely a great anecdote to tell at parties.

However, if you do one of these things and raise money for charity at the same time then you will be helping others too, which would make your achievement even greater.

So, why not consider taking on one of the challenges below and raise money for Making Space at the same time?

You will be helping people with dementia, mental health conditions, older people and carers, which is pretty amazing.

All you need to do is:

  • Choose your challenge
  • Gain sponsorship for Making Space
  • Complete the challenge
  • Bask in the glow of your wonderful fundraising efforts

It's really that simple!

Here's some challenge ideas to get you thinking.

1. Jump for free in 23

Raise a minimum of £325 in sponsorship and Making Space will cover the cost of your skydive. Skydiving is a great way to test yourself, get an adrenaline rush and raise loads of money for Making Space. New Booking - Skyline Events (skylineparachuting.co.uk)

2. New me in 23

Maybe 2023 is the year when you try something new? Learn to play an instrument? Start a new form of exercise like yoga or cycling? Share a positive quote each day on your social media?

There’s so many things you could take on and be a ‘new me in 23’ and gain sponsorship while doing it. Just set yourself challenging goals along the way so, people can support your progress.

3. Virtual walking/running

Choose your distance, choose your location and choose your timeframe. Take on a walking or running challenge that fits into your busy life and pushes your boundaries.

4. Break a record

There are all sorts of quirky and fun ways to break a Guinness World Record. Who holds the record for building the tallest tower of Lego? I don't know but maybe it could be you? Get your thinking cap on and you could be a Guinness World Record holder and raise loads of money for Making Space too.

5. Karaoke-a-thon

If you can hold a tune and don't mind singing "I Will Survive" then this could be the challenge for you. Get your playlist ready and sing all your favourite hits for a marathon amount of time.

6. Join an organised expedition

The Lake District? Iceland? China? Charity Challenge have an expedition for everyone. Take a look and see what inspires you. https://www.charitychallenge.c...

7. Face your fears

Is there something you really don't like? Spiders? Flying? Let 2023 be the year you face your fears and raise money for Making Space while you're at it.

8. Social media detox

Are you permanently scrolling through Facebook, snapchatting your friends or checking out holiday snaps on Instagram? Raise money and resist the temptation to tap, swipe and scroll.

9. Game-a-thon

Get your mates together and play all your favourite video games for 24 hours! Use Twitch to stream your gaming marathon to make even more money for Making Space.

10. Get Environmentally friendly

Challenge yourself to make small changes to get greener. Keep a log on your fundraising page and ask people to sponsor you every time you do something positive for the environment.

Please contact the Fundraising Team with any questions you have and let us know your ideas too by emailing fundraising@makingspace.co.uk.
