Challenges with St Barnabas

Sponsored challenges are a great way to get fit, to test your stamina or bravery, and support local hospice care.

From skydiving and wing walking to running marathons, cycling long distances, or walking on fire and LEGO… Take a look below for all upcoming challenges or choose your own!


Meet Chris and Ness, your Challenge fundraisers

Chris is an avid runner and often participates in running challenges, including the Great North Run and the Lincoln 10k, which he ran dressed as our charity’s mascot – Barnabas Bear!

Ness is a thrill-seeker and loves taking on new challenges. Some of her favourite experiences to date have been skydiving, bungee jumping, wing walking and scuba diving!

Chris and Ness will give you guidance on how to raise money and prepare for your challenge. They have a lot of events you can choose from, or you can choose your own challenge and contact them to say you want to fundraise for us, they’ll be more than happy to help.

It doesn’t matter what event you do or how much you raise, it all goes towards the same goal of caring for our patients as best as we possibly can.

Thank you for choosing to support St Barnabas!
