We have a range of sponsored events that you can take part in from abseiling and skydiving to the Great West Run, but if none of those events suit you, then why not organise your own? Sponsored swims, silences, walks and sports tournaments can be a great way to raise vital funds for local people with brain injuries. To sign up for an opportunity, find out more, or talk about your ideas, email firstname.lastname@example.org or call us on 01392 211822.
Walks, treks and cycles
What better way to raise money for local people with brain injuries than taking part in an exciting rewarding charity challenge?

For a full list of our treks, cycles and challenges, please visit Discover Adventure’s website here.

Gift Aid is a government scheme that means charities can reclaim 25% of the amount of a donation back from HMRC.
