The Toy Trust's annual Big Challenge fundraising day for summer 2016 has been confirmed to be taking place on Saturday, July 2nd, 2016.

The challenge will be based at Grafham Water in Cambridgeshire with an evening celebration at the end of the day at the nearby Wyboston Lakes Hotel. 

Plans for the fundraiser include a running event of varying distances, an 80 mile circular (flat) bike ride, a ten mile family walk and family bike ride around Grafham Water, and a tandem skydive at a nearby airfield.

The skydive will be strictly limited to 30 places.

The Big Cambridge Challenge will aim to raise over £200,000 for the children’s charities supported by the Toy Trust.

There will be 280 places available for teams in the toy, licensing and retail community which will be allocated on a first come, first served basis.

“Next year’s Big Challenge is shaping up to be the most exciting event the Toy Trust has ever held and we sincerely hope the 28 teams that supported this year’s event will be back to support us again next July” said Toy Trust chair Foye Pascoe.

“We also hope to encourage new teams, however big or small, to get involved in what has become an amazingly uplifting and fun, team building day that raises massive amounts of money for the disadvantaged children the Toy Trust supports.”

Further event details will be available shortly, but teams or individuals wishing to register interest in participating should email Matt Jones at the BTHA to as soon as possible.

Following last year’s fully subscribed event, early applications for places at the event are fully recommended.
