Cherry Trees turns 40 this year, celebrating four decades as leaders in the provision of respite care, a place of excellence for children and young people with disabilities to come to for tea-time visits, over nights and short stays.

Our bright 'home from home' house is a place so many of our young people get excited about coming to, meaning mum and dad know their child is somewhere they are happy and well looked after when with us.

This year we have decided to introduce some fun elements to our fundraising - enter our 40 Challenges For 40 Years list.

The list is there with suggested ways of taking on mini challenges which range from sporty to literary to culinary to even picking up plastic litter giving people lots of different ways to both take on a challenge and also gain sponsorship. 

Whether you are a new or an old supporter of Cherry Trees, a teacher looking for ideas for your school to join in with, or even  a local  netball team - whoever you are, embrace that number 40 and get in touch by celebrating with us by taking on 40 challenges in our 40th year!!

WHAT DO I HAVE TO DO ? 

It's easy - download our list of suggested 40 fundraiser ideas and then promote your intention to have a go at the list to your friends, family and colleagues and get cracking. 

NB: (you can also swap challenges and add in your own ones, it's not set in stone)

Download the list HERE. 

CAN I DO IT ON MY OWN ? 

100% yes. It's one for individuals, groups of friends or even companies, schools, choirs - (the list goes on) to get involved with. 

HOW DO I COLLECT MONEY FOR CHERRY TREES ?

There are several ways to do so, you can use a sponsorship form for cash donations, set up your own challenge page on our website for people to sponsor you on, or you can donate or fundraise via our facebook page. (www.facebook.com/cherrytreesuk
