Start the New Year as you mean to go on and take part in one of these fundraising events near you. January is known for being a long, miserable month as the celebrations of the festive season are gone for another year it can often feel empty and gloomy. But the beginning of a new year presents itself with the opportunity to re-new, re-fresh and re-think and what better place to start than with lending a helping hand and fundraising some money for a charity or cause in need. There are various events, up and down the country that you can take part in including a Night of Jazz, an Evening Ball and the New Year Hike across London! We have included a link to all the details of each event below so you can show your support and get involved in anyway you can.
Cancer Research UK
Throughout the month of January
Sign up for Dryalthlon as a solo member or as part of a team and drop the drink for January to help raise money for cancer research. Not only will you raise money for a great charity but you will also save yourself the hangovers, a few pennies and drop a few calories! If you know you have an event coming up in January and are worried about cheating a little, you can just take The Tipple Tax and pledge £20 for slipping off the wagon. Sign up today to detox and fundraise throughout January.
