some people do hitchhiking events-like getting to eiffell tower for free, getting sponsored in the meantime.

bike ride from one side of country to another?

Men often like dressing up as women in an amusing way; there must be some thing in that for charity.

Oh and please not cancer research.

Only something like 1% of funds raised actually go to research. My mum managed one of their charity shops and had to leave when she realised how its run-she would get something like 60p a mile expenses, fortnightly courses to attend, salmon & sushi dinners (all being paid for from the funds) and was paid a hefty salary. all her 'volunteers' were tea-leafers too and she couldn't do anything about it.

Even if you don't believe that aspect, cancer research get a lot of funding from Race for Life and their charity shops, smaller charities don't have that income. especially those without government funding.

I would strongly recommend Macmillian who care for my grandad or Air Ambulance who receive no government funding etc.

i think the st lukes does the three peaks challenge but you have to raise £3000. before you can take part
so my son and his mates (army guys) are doing it of their own backs for the help the heroes so all the money they raise will go straight to the charity some of their friends have come home injured

What about a Land End to John O Groats bike ride?
#13
Jump out a plane? LOL

I noticed you never mentioned anything about a parachute there hannah :lol:

Yeh, my grandad has cancer, macmillan are fantastic-they come and visit him and fund nurses keeping them in a job to visit their patients.

I just dont think CR should be classed as a charity at all, they see themselves more as a business.

approx 1000miles (give or take)

a "West to East" Coast 2 Coast is a more leisurely 140m ride (and do-able over 3days) and is a lovely few days in the lakes :thumbsup: Have lots a stuff I can send your hubby. Personally (although I've done it twice) this is still my fav event.

ah which is the same distance as the one in Spain he wanted to do. I'm liking the sound of the 3 day one though! This really is just an idea at the moment, if he does decide this we'd really appreciate the info - thanks hun x
