What:

     Raise £100 in any way you can!

When:

     Sat 11th to Sat 25th June

How:

     Run, Walk, Juggle, Knit, Bake,        Tell Jokes! It is completely up         to you!

For a fortnight this June we’d love you to join in our fundraising campaign to take on your very own 100 challenge, be that a distance of 100km, 100 miles, doing something for 100 minutes or raising £100.

Pick your #HenshawsHundreds, tell everyone you know, enjoy training and practicing your chosen skill, and then join in from 11-25 June to complete your challenge. Could you swim 100m? Run 100km? Cycle 100 miles? This is an event that everyone can do within their own abilities. Just pick a hundred of any distance you like – from inches to miles – and get sponsored to travel it however you want to. You don’t have to do it all in one go, either – that 100km bike ride could be spread across the fortnight. It’s also a challenge you can do solo, or as a group. Maybe taking turns on a treadmill in the office or forming a running club with friends. Whatever you choose, let’s do it for Henshaws!

There’s some inspiration below, but remember this is your challenge, your way! Be as creative as you want and inject the fun into your fundraising.

We launching a new and exciting online charity art event this Summer. The “Henshaws Hundreds Art” sale will be held 6th – 19th  June, offering art lovers something a little different. With over 100 pieces of postcard-sized artwork each retailing at £100, 100% of the proceeds from artwork sales will go to support Henshaws Arts & Crafts Centre in Knaresborough. The 2 week long event is a vital fundraiser for Henshaws, which supports people living with sight loss and disabilities across the north of England.
