Set a personal challenge
Setting a personal challenge is a great way to achieve a desired goal
Whether it’s the need to increase fitness, lose weight or give up smoking, linking your challenge to sponsorship or fundraising provides great motivation with a fantastic result, as both you and the charity are winners when you reach your target!
Camphill Blair Drummond is a superb learning disability charity to donate to. Below are a few personal challenge ideas to get you on your way.
Whether it’s one mile or 10 miles, every step counts. Walking is a fantastic way to keep fit, get outside in the fresh air and it can be done at your own pace. Popular challenges include Walking the West Highland Way, a walk up our very own Dumyat overlooking Stirling, or perhaps you have a favourite walk of your own you could do. Alternatively, why not leave the car or bus behind for a week and ask people to sponsor you to walk to work, school or your local shops.
Few things are as rewarding as running for charity. Run for a reason – run for Camphill! Jog around your local football pitch, take on a full-blown marathon, or get wet, muddy and throw in some obstacles. You can set a challenge to suit you. Here are some annual local events:
Get on your bike. Set yourself a cycling challenge for Camphill or take part in our very own Sponsored Bike Safari! Join us for a fantastic, fun day out for all the family at Blair Drummond Safari Park; we have four exciting challenges, inviting you to cycle a loop around the safari park at your own pace. Afterwards, you can relax and reward yourself with some welcome refreshments.

- “I have been very lucky to see the new workshops and houses become a reality. It has been talked about for a long time and it is great to see it happen. There has been quite a bit of upheaval along the way and the residents have coped with it brilliantly. However it has all been worthwhile and you just have to pop into Sycamore or Garden House to see that the residents think so too.” (Irene McLaren, Amber House Leader)
