Bucket List Challenges

Do you dream of challenge and adventure? We might be able to help!

Many of us dream of challenge and adventure, whether it’s a personal challenge such as an Ironman Triathlon or completing the Three Peaks in a record time; whether it’s a once in a lifetime challenge such as skydiving or bungee jumping; or an overseas adventure like trekking to Macchu Picchu or along the Great Wall of China.

Willow Wood may be able to help you achieve those dreams by showing you what’s available and where you can access information. At the same time, by choosing to do this for Willow Wood you’ll be helping our care by raising vital funds so that we can maintain our services to local people.
Just choose the type of adventure below and follow the links to find out more. Of course, these are only a few of the many challenges available, there are many more out there just waiting for you! Whatever you do for us, you know you'll have our sincere gratitude.
Remember, once you’ve signed up to your challenge let us know what you are doing by emailing or by completing the registration form below. We can then help you raise funds by sharing your online page and, of course, we’ll give you one of our coveted #TeamWillowWood T shirts.

Some of these challenges may qualify for our ‘Super Sponsor’ status which means if you can raise enough sponsorship we will refund your registration fees – please contact us for details.
