The Astriid Challenge, our annual fundraising initiative, is back! From 10th June-31st July 2023, we’re looking for individuals and teams to help us meet our fundraising goal, at a time when doing so is more crucial than ever before.
So, how do you join in?
- Decide on a challenge, any challenge, that’s suitable for you and/or your team. This could be a physical challenge (such as walking, running or cycling), or a more creative challenge (such as baking or organising a quiz night) that requires less physical exertion.
- This year, we’d love for your challenge to incorporate the number 20 – to reflect our crucial target of £20,000 that’s needed to sustain the charity. It’s 20 for £20K – your way. Keep an eye on our socials where we’ll be sharing plenty of physical and less-physical examples of challenge ideas above, and feel free to download our free fundraising pack here!
- When you’re ready, head to our Emergency Astriid Appeal on JustGiving and set up your own fundraising page. Click ‘start fundraising’, and choose your target amount.
- Once the challenge begins, spread the word about what you’re doing and encourage friends and families to sponsor you. Every donation makes a difference!
Why Fundraise For Us?
Over the past 5 years, Astriid has helped hundreds of candidates with long-term conditions secure meaningful employment. The next few months are critical for our charity’s survival, at a time when our services are needed more than ever before.
We receive NO official funding, which means that for there to be a future for Astriid and our services, we are asking you directly to get involved and help us save the charity… while having a completely enjoyable and memorable experience at the same time!
For any further queries, please contact Kat, our fundraising lead, at [email protected]. Please do let us know what you have planned, and take plenty of pics so we can cheer you on too! Thank you so much in advance for your support – we can’t wait to see what challenge you choose!
