Take on a challenge for Action for Children

By bike, on foot, in teams, or as a personal challenge, you can support Action for Children in a range of different ways whilst having fun.

We are offering Free Spaces in a variety of challenge events. With Royal Mail automatically covering the cost of registration fees, all the money you raise will be directly invested into our new, school-based, preventative mental health programme, the Blues Programme.

You are able to claim back the registration cost of these events by applying for Royal Mail's fundraising grant.

Below is a list of Action for Children’s events you can get involved in*
