£20K Charity Challenge

This year, on the Forum's 20th anniversary, we've set ourselves a challenge: to raise £20,000 for local charities!

All members and partners can help us raise our target, either by taking part in a range of fundraising events throughout the year (most notably our Forum Beats Cancer Challenge, a circumnavigation of Kielder Water taking place on Saturday 2nd July 2022) or by donating to our fundraising page.

Members can also hold their own fundraising activities and submit their efforts to the overall fundraising total. To add your own charity to the list below, email info@entrepreneursforum.net

Forum Beats Cancer Challenge

Are you up for an adventure in 2022?

Join us by becoming one of our Forum Intrepid Adventurers for a mammoth challenge: taking on the beautiful Kielder Water, circumnavigating the 27 miles shoreline trail by foot in one day. If 27 miles seems a step too far don't worry, you can complete the "half" or even a "stage" of the walk. 

Saturday 2nd July 2022, All day
Kielder Waterside Park, Kielder, Hexham, NE48 1ER

Help Us Beat Cancer and Save Lives

Help Us Beat Cancer and Save Lives

Supporting Cancer Research is really important to the Forum team as our previous chief executive, Jonathan Lamb, left our organisation to fight his own battle with cancer. This disease is devastating for all those it affects and research must be the answer. Please support our mission to help future generations to survive cancer and donate via our fundraising page.
