Each year and across the country there are a number of major challenge events that you can get involved with and raise money for the Lifeboat Fund.  The list isn't exhaustive, so please get in touch if you know any more. 

If you get a place at an event, get in touch and we'll link you up with local supporters, help with publicity and branded materials.
