Will you join Scotland’s Stay-At-Home Superheroes and supercharge your fundraising with one of our lockdown friendly challenges?
You can fight back against loneliness, stop fear in its tracks and keep people alive for longer – all without stepping foot outside!
You can help make sure people with chest, heart and stroke conditions always have a hero to turn to, so no one has to fight coronavirus alone
Set yourself up on your own beastly obstacle course or training circuit and get sponsored to sweat it out to help others! We have Badass Beast ideas for those who want to challenge themselves with a serious superhero work out, and Tame the Beast ideas for those looking to take on a creative beastly adventure. Set up a justgiving page and get fundraising or donate £5 and tag 5 friends to take on the challenge next!
Let’s do it!
Saddle up for a wheel good time by taking on your very own Tour De Living Room!
Get sponsored to take on a cycling challenge which can take place at home on an exercise bike or out and about as part of your daily exercise. Cycle the equivalent of a famous cycling event or route and know that every penny raised will help people in Scotland live life to the full.
Your imagination is the only limit to your route so pick a distance to suite your fitness and the time you want to take part. This could mean taking on the equivalent of the Tour de Lauder from 50miles, all the way up to the Tour De France at 2,200 miles! (But you might want to share that one with some friends or complete it across a month….)

Could you give up one of your guilty pleasures for a month all in the name of supporting others to live life to the full?
For just one month we want you to give up something you love so that we can be there for someone you love.
What you give up is entirely up to you! Do you whine for wine, go coco(a) for chocolate, or find it a trifle hard to skip dessert? If crisps are your vice we want you to packet in. If you can’t stop swearing it’s time to shut the cuss up!
Give It Up for one month and every penny you raise will mean vital support for some of the most vulnerable people across Scotland. You can ask people to sponsor you to Give It Up and remember – and just in case of any slip ups across the month, set yourself a penalty charge for breaking the rules!!
There’s loads of ways you can help raise money, so find the ways that work best for you.
Give as you live
Declutter and Donate
Your fundraising superpowers will help people do more than survive. Because of you people in Scotland will live their lives to the full. So kick-start your fundraising, assemble your amazing A team and get ready – it’s hero time!
