Virtual Challenge - any challenge, any distance, anywhere, any time...

How it works

Set yourself a physical challenge at a time and place convenient for you.

This can be outdoors, indoors, running, swimming, on your bike, up a mountain – whatever floats your boat! It can be all in one go or cumulative – to fit around your busy life. In return for your efforts, you’ll receive an exclusive Stripey Stork medal on completion.

It's that simple - are you to take on your virtual challenge?

Be the winner of your own race!

How the funds may be used

Once done, you’ll be able to rest in the knowledge that you’ve contributed to providing a service which is a lifeline for local vulnerable families. Here’s what your efforts could buy:

£25 - new contents for a newborn baby pack (nappies, wipes, baby toiletries etc.), a new changing mat and Moses basket mattress.

£50 - two brand new cot bed mattresses to keep babies comfortable, safe and warm. For every pre-loved cot donated to us, a new mattress is purchased to adhere to UK safety regulations.

£100 - keep us well stocked for a month with toiletries such as toothbrushes, toothpaste, shampoo, body wash and other essentials, which we add to our 'packages of care'.
