The Heroes & Heroines Fund

Heroes and heroines truly live among us right now; they are the ones leaving children and partners at home to staff hospitals and maintain essential services. Donate to our hero and heroines fund to help give the holiday of a lifetime to someone that is putting their lives at risk for us. Nominate who you think deserves a holiday – to be taken when the time is right.

We recently took part in a 24-hour non-stop virtual cycling challenge to fundraise for our heroes, cycling over 580km and raising over £3,000. You can see our video here. Next up – our Around the World with Steppes Travel Quiz night.
