The Christmas Challenge 2023 will take place between 28th November and 5th December when donations to participating charities are doubled.
The Fit for Future Gym Appeal 2023
We provide rehabilitation for patients after a heart attack, primary prevention of heart disease, falls prevention, pulmonary rehab and a newly launched Cancer Rehab service. Much of our exercise equipment is old with failing functionality and was badly affected by the constant cleaning during the COVID pandemic. We need up to date exercise equipment to match a newly refurbished building to give the best service for exercisers on our programmes.
We are launching a Fit for the Future Gym appeal to our community, supporters and exercisers to building a fund to enable us to replace the exercise equipment with modern replacements that can integrate with wearable technology and encourage people to get the most from our programmes. So far we have identified 3 treadmills, 2 exercise bikes and one recumbent bike needing replacement but we also want to upgrade our resistance (weights) machines for core strength for cancer rehab and falls prevention
One donation – twice the impact!
Donations can only be accepted during an online campaign via a special Big Give website page between 28th November and 5th December 2023.
How does the Christmas Challenge Work?
The Christmas Challenge is a match funding campaign where donations to participating charities are doubled. The match funds come from pledges that we have secured over the summer. This pot is used to double donations from online supporters when the campaign is live. The video from the 2022 campaign explains further:
