Go Karting

Zip and zoom your way through this speedy fundraiser for the East Cheshire Hospice!

Get together with some buddies and set yourself the epic challenge of endurance by seeing who can complete the most laps of a go karting track in an hour… We never said it would be easy! If you want to up the game by making this a race, why not set some friendly competition and see who gets to 200 laps first.

 

This is a great fundraising idea to not only support your local hospice but also channel your inner Lewis Hamilton.

 

How do I start fundraising?

The best way to collect sponsorship would be to take cash on the day of the event. We have plenty of collection buckets and pots you can use for your event, please see contact details below of how to get in touch with us.

It costs £7,500 to keep the Hospice running for 1 day, so every penny that you can raise is important.

Reckon you’ve got what it takes?

Gather a group of friends and set yourselves the challenge to learn how to synchronise swim and put together a routine that will eventually be performed to an audience. The challenge is to learn a routine before the big performance day and encourage supporters to sponsor you all for the challenge in aid of the East Cheshire Hospice.

Learn how to:
