The Saints Foundation welcome 2012 with a range of experiences for fans to take on a new challenge and raise funds for disadvantaged young people and vulnerable adults. It’s a brand New Year so why not take on a new challenge, a True Saints Challenge and get yourself a True Saints Award at the end of it!
Make it your New Year’s resolution to meet a personal goal, try something new, take on a challenge or even brave a fear, all in the name of charity. Our True Saints Challenges offer you a variety of options, from trekking in the UK and overseas to diving with Sharks or running a marathon at the foot of Kilimanjaro.
All the challenges will be an amazing experience for participants but will also raise money for the Saints Foundation. Everyone that takes part in a True Saints Challenge and raises over £150 will be presented with a special ‘True Saints Award’ at a ceremony in April 2013. Below is the first release of our calendar for 2012/13, for more information or to sign up to an event, CLICK HERE or please contact our Event’s Fundraising Coordinator, Shelley on firstname.lastname@example.org or 02380 711997
