Challenges 2017


Try something new to support our life-changing appeals.


Supporting Penny Appeal isn’t just about donating your money. It can be about donating your time, your effort and your imagination, and encouraging others to give for a great cause.


Challenge yourself and help those in need by doing a sponsored challenge! We have a number of regional, national, and even international challenges throughout the year so check out the table below to find out what’s coming up.


Or perhaps you have your own challenge in mind! Tell us all about it here.

Set up your own challenge


If you fancy something different, or if you have a particular appeal you'd love to raise money for, why not organise your own challenge? Take on a sporting event, give up something you love or try something extreme! Download an information sheet to get some ideas.



You can also let us know what you’ve got planned by filling in our challenge form so we can support you, whether it’s providing you with t-shirts and other resources, spreading the word or just offering help and advice.


Don't forget we're here to help you reach your fundraising goals, so just drop us a line to ask for our best tips!

Haroon's best moment with #TeamOrange so far has been recruiting a team of over 75 runners to take on the Coventry Half Marathon in February 2016, raising over £45,000 to help refugees. They don't call him the "Mota-Vator" for nothing!



Paying in your sponsorship

Once you’ve completed your challenge, please don’t forget to pay in your money.


If you’ve set up a JustGiving page and selected Penny Appeal as your chosen charity, you don’t need to do anything else – the money will be transferred to us directly. You can also pay via the webpage for your chosen appeal, or call us to make a credit or debit card payment, or to arrange to make a bank transfer.


If you’ve taken a collection bucket, please call us on 03000 11 11 11.
