There are many ways you can get involved - and there is a role you can play in making a difference to someone else's life, raising money, raising awareness, hosting an event yourself... this list is endless.
Anniversary Corporate Challenge
Entrepreneurial ideas, our members have them by the bucket load, they inspire others to go on and achieve great things. If you fancy a break from sporting activities and you would prefer to do something more geared towards business, then why not take up the challenge with the 30th Anniversary Corporate Challenge.
As part of its 30th Anniversary celebrations the charity is asking members and Forum supporters, "If you had £30 to invest, how would you make the most of it?"
The charity is challenging YOU to start with £30 and use YOUR ingenuity and entrepreneurial spirit to grow the money throughout its 30th year. You can use any means necessary - as long as it's legal and ethical! Good luck!
We'd like you to tell us what you are going to do and keep us updated as to how much your £30 makes. By contacting Rachel or Emma on 0191 5007780 or email email@example.com
All money raised will go towards the charity's Crawford House in Newcastle which supports more than around 800 families every year and has recently gone over the 4,000 families milestone.
