Survival Challenge - East Cheshire Hospice

Survival Challenge

Reckon you are the next Bear Grylls?

Why not turn that weekend camping trip into a fundraiser for the East Cheshire Hospice. Get together with some family and friends and see if you have the survival skills to camp out in the woods for a night or two. You will need to do some research on how to survive a night with the minimal of equipment*.

Learn how to:

There are plenty of groups, organisations, and materials such and books and vlogs that will help you to prepare and build the best outdoor skills. Local Scouts and Guides groups teach these skills, additionally many schools will offer the Duke of Edinburgh Award to teach children these essential outdoors skills.

*Please do not take on the challenge on your own, it’s safer and always more fun with a buddy!

How do I start fundraising?

Start by setting up your Just Giving page here and follow the simple step-by-step process to creating your fundraising page. Make sure to fill in the details about your Bear Grylls challenge, set yourself a fundraising target, share your page with friends and family on social media, email, WhatsApp, text… And away you go!

It costs £7,500 to keep the Hospice running for 1 day, so every penny that you can raise is important. You may never know exactly how your support will help but you can be assured that the impact your support will have on local families who can benefit from the Hospice services at one of the most difficult and emotional times will be huge and ever so appreciated.

If you would like any advice or if you have any questions at all please contact the Challenge Events Coordinator Bethan Wade on bwade@echospice.org.uk or call 01625 665691.
