It's 2022, a Winter Olympic and World Cup year with the small matter of a Platinum Jubilee too but it's also the 40th Anniversary of Making Space!

So how can you make a splash in our anniversary year and do something really special? Why not take on a challenge in aid of Making Space?

Making Space needs people, just like you, to jump out of planes, bake cakes and put in some serious miles for people with dementia, mental health conditions and carers.

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. Take part in our #40for40 weekend

This year we're asking people to take on our #40for40 weekend challenge, between 23 - 26 September 2022, to raise money for our services. What you challenge yourself to do is up to you, all we ask is that it relates to the number 40.

It could be to bake 40 cakes, walk 40 miles, 40 minutes of hula hooping or maybe a 40 hour sponsored silence. The choice is yours.

2. Skydive

You don't need to train for weeks in advance for this challenge but it'll test your mettle all the same.

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 2022 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 tape, 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.
