Events Diary

Join in with one of our organised events. They’re great fun and we’d love you to get involved.

2019 is our Twentieth Anniversary; that's 20 years of loving care for the people of Tameside and Glossop and we'd love you to join our celebrations throughout the year, by joining us for one or more fundraising events.

These range from challenge events such as the IKEA Abseil, convivial nights out with friends such as our Foods around the World, events where we want you to use your skills and imagination such as the 20/20 Challenge, family fun events like our Bubble Rush, and events where you can just kick back and relax with friends like our Cocktails & Dreams. There truly is something for everyone - just take a look at the events diary below.
More and more events will be coming online as details are posted, but if you want to plan your year in advance download our What's On. We'll also be bringing back some old favourites to celebrate our 20th Anniversary like the Midnight Wander, surely the most-loved sponsored event we have ever organised. Back in 2008 we had over 1,900 walkers taking part - can you help us beat that figure this year? Put Friday 20 September in your diaries now and keep in touch with us - we'll let you know as soon as we are ready to start taking registrations.
In the meantime take a look at our What's On to find out what else we have planned for the year.
