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.

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.
