Choose Distant Horizons for Your Company’s Charity Challenge

29 Mar 2017 - Nick

Tucked in the scenic Lake District in the heart of Ullswater, Distant Horizons have been helping people to push themselves and achieve amazing things for over 20 years. Our challenge events have been enjoyed by everyone, from seasoned adrenaline junkies to people looking to give themselves a challenge to overcome. The feeling of achievement from completing an adventure challenge is amazing, and many people come back to us regularly to push themselves even further.

With more and more companies, groups of friends and individuals looking for new and inspiring ways to raise money for charity, the team at Distant Horizons have seen an increase in demand for our charity challenges. These charity challenges are organised for large corporate groups and hundreds of participants, and in the past we’ve organised more than 700 people taking part in the Cumbrian Challenge for Walking with the Wounded. Whether you want to complete one of our adventure challenges for charity, or you want something a little more bespoke, the team at Distant Horizons will help you to organise a rewarding charity challenge for your cause.

<h2>Why choose a charity challenge for your fundraising?</h2>

Compared to many other forms of fundraising, charity challenges tend to bring in significantly more money and attract more people to take part and engage with your cause. We have years of experience in helping groups and companies to organise successful charity challenges and understand the unique challenges of holding events with hundreds of participants.

We’ll work with you to design a charity challenge that’s achievable for your group’s ability and meets your budget, giving you any advice you need to make the most of your charity challenge. If you want to see the type of charity challenges we organise, simply check out the Samworth Brothers Charity Challenge 2015.

<h2>Distant Horizons will make your charity challenge smooth and easy</h2>

As well as taking care of organising the charity challenge, we’ll ensure all your participants have comfortable accommodation, no matter how large your charity challenge is going to be. Not only do we have on-site accommodation, we work closely with surrounding hotels, hostels, B&Bs and even campsites, to ensure everyone  has somewhere warm, dry and relaxing to come back to after a day of challenging outdoor adventure!

<h2>What kinds of activities are included in our charity challenges?</h2>

When we work with you to design your charity challenge, we’ll consult you about everything involved to make sure you have an event that plenty of people can complete without it being easy. Our experienced team have decades of experience in a variety of outdoor activities, including:

  • Rock climbing
  • Road biking
  • Hiking
  • Orienteering
  • Mountain biking
  • Abseiling
  • Scrambling
  • Cliff jumping
  • Open water swimming
  • Canyoning

We offer a range of different activities that you can offer potential participants for your charity challenge. In our experience, people are more likely to sponsor significant amount of money for challenging events where the participants really have to push themselves, and the team at Distant Horizons will be able to give you advice about training before the event and any other questions you may have.

We will provide all the equipment everyone taking part in your charity challenge will need to use, allowing both you and your participants to relax and focus on fundraising.
