The Grand Challenge

To celebrate HemiHelp’s 25th anniversary we’re inviting teams of up to six people to take on the Grand Challenge: turn £100 into £1,000 in just twelve weeks.

Your team could be formed at the school gates, or during your weekly aqua-aerobics class. You could be family or friends or work for the same firm. Anyone can rise to the Grand Challenge!

It’s totally up to you how you work your fundraising magic. There’s no limit to the amount of cakes you can bake, pub quiz questions you can ask or length of scarf you can knit. You could run, swim, even jump out of an aeroplane. Why not do something amazing?

£1,000 is only £14 per person per week if you have a full team but with it we can fund three months of support for families affected by hemiplegia through our Helpline. With twenty Grand Challenge teams smashing their target we could fund our Transitions Service for young adults with hemiplegia for a whole year. You could make a real difference. 

The Grand Challenge starts on Monday 16th May 2016 and ends on Monday 8th August 2016.

As well as giving you the money to get started we’ll provide you with HemiHelp materials and fundraising support. You’ll also get your own Virgin Money Giving page to collect donations and track your progress as you grow our investment in your brilliant idea to raise the money.

You don’t have to stop at £1,000, of course - we’ll be celebrating the team that raises the most as the Overall Winning Team. You could also be awarded the title of Most Innovative Team or win the Best Use of Social Media award. Everyone taking part will be invited to our Annual Reception which will be a very special occasion this year.

All you need to do is assemble your winning team, fill in this application form to give us a rough idea of how you’ll turn £100 into £1,000. It’s OK to change these plans - we know inspiration can strike at any time.  Just make sure you let us know you’re in, and your ideas, by Monday 9th May 2016.
