245 Challenge

This year we are challenging you to take on our 245 challenge to raise money for the 245 local children we support each year. Getting involved is simple – challenge yourself to take on 245 of anything you like, so long as it is a challenge to complete, whilst raising money for Befriend a Child. This could involve running, walking, swimming, climbing, learning words in a new language, picking up litter, completing puzzles, baking, singing, dancing, drawing, painting, or crafting. Read more
