Organise your own...

Want to walk the West Highland Way, cycle the length of the country or break a world record to raise money for Venture Trust? Well, don't let us hold you back!

Annabelle (right) organised her own fundraising challenge - to swim the length of the River Tweed - 96 miles - in her local pool, over three months. She used a free online tracking tool which showed her progress along the river, and used a combination of traditional paper sponsor forms and an online giving page.

Contact us for more inspiration, support and advice. Set up a fundraising page with Virgin Money Giving or JustGiving and download a sponsor form.
