Upcoming events

Soap Box Challenge - 2018

The RBC Soap Box Challenge will take place, courtesy of the Benyon family, at Englefield Park, near Theale. There will be thrills, spill and much laughter, as the home made soap boxes speed down the track and hurtle round the bends!  For more information, rules and regulations, and an entry form click here.

Open Challenges

Have you ever fancied trying something a little out of the ordinary to raise money for charity? 

If so, our list of Open Challenges might appeal to your sense of adventure.  You can ride a horse across Mongolia, take part in a world record breaking attempt skydive, wing walk, trek across the beautiful Brecon Beacons, or even take on a challenging trip to an Icelandic glacier.

Open Challenges are a fun and easy way for you to support the RBC – we hope you find something that grabs your attention, but if not please do let us know what you are planning.  We love to hear about all of our supporters efforts.

Wing Walking – various dates

London to Paris Cycle Challenge – various dates

Avon Mega Abseil – various dates


We are passionate about what we do here at the Royal Berks and we couldn’t do it without the support of our donors, fundraisers, volunteers and our own staff at the hospital. From small family run events to the larger ones run by the charity we are always looking for something new. Perhaps you can help us by submitting ideas for us to consider, a summer barbecue in a local meadow, a bed race round a local park or a soap box derby. A member of staff has already suggested a Bake Off Competition – great idea. Get your thinking caps on and let us have your suggestions. Keep it local, keep it simple and always remember that we need to recruit volunteers as well as participants.
