Change Step Summer 2020 Fundraising Opportunities

 

  • VJ Day Backyard Sleepout – 12th – 19th of August

  • Abseil August – 29th + 30th of August

 

 

To commemorate the 75th anniversary of VJ Day on August 15th, Change Step are inviting the public to hold their own VJ Day Backyard Sleepout to raise funds that will go towards helping our peer mentors provide vital support to veterans and their families in Wales.

 

Raising money for a good cause has never been so simple!…

Each person taking part erects a shelter, tent, poncho or even just a bivvy bag in their back garden to spend an evening outdoors. Your makeshift camp can be as extravagant or as basic as you like!

Your Sleepout can be held any time between the 12th and 19th of August – Just don’t forget to share your experience with us by sharing your photos on social media with #sleepout4changestep or tag us at the following:

Feeling a bit more adventurous?!… Why not take on our Abseil August challenge to raise money for Change Step?

 

 

In partnership with Go Vertical, a North Wales based provider of mountaineering training and rock climbing courses, we are able to offer you an opportunity to abseil in beautiful surroundings while raising money for Change Step.

All you have to do is book your abseil with Go Vertical for £35 on either the 29th or 30th of August then go on to collect as many pledges as you can! (Please note that in order to take part, you must collect a minimum of £35 in sponsorship) – Pledges can be collected by setting up your own fundraising page through www.justgiving.com/changestepwales, or contacting us for a sponsorship form.

Go Vertical will provide all necessary equipment and one of their instructors will be with you to guide you through your abseil.

Once again all funds raised will go towards helping our peer mentors provide vital support to veterans and their families in Wales.
