Oak Lodge School is a special school for students aged 11 - 18 years with physical and/or learning difficulties. 

Website                       

Following a very successful 10-mile walk with Zurich employees last year, Oak Lodge students would like to do something similar again.  Your challenge is to fundraise for the exceedingly popular 'Five Guys' meal that the students are given at the end of the walk, and to accompany the students on the walk.  The question is, can you keep up?!

612  Sleep out

Challenge group size:  F

The Soup Kitchen

What's the challenge?

The Soup Kitchen is one of London’s Multi-year funding partners.  It is a resource for the homeless, elderly, lonely and poor in Central London, providing free hot meals, clothes and toiletries, and creating a sense of belonging and community. It serves around 70 people a day.

Your challenge is to sleep, overnight, at The Soup Kitchen to raise funds and awareness for the plight of the many rough sleepers in the city.  You'll sleep outside, but in their secure courtyard, to try and experience what it's like to have to spend the night outside (and unlike the city's homeless, you'll have access to a bathroom and a warm area if it gets too much!).  In addition to the cold, you'll also have to deal with constant noise from sirens, noisy revellers etc.

613  Bouncing back

Challenge group size:  F

Bounce Back

What's the challenge?

Bounce Back focuses on the training and employment of ex-offenders. They firmly believe everyone has the ability to change and work in several prisons, as well as with London Probation, to offer training, work experience and employment to offenders at the end of their sentences using the skills developed both in custody and on release. 

Website  

Your challenge is to run a 'soft skills' day at Brixton Prison, covering topics which will help inmates when they are released from prison. This might include CV writing, practising interview skills and financial management (depending on the skills of the group). These days hugely benefit the inmates, as they are all due to be released within 6 months and very often do not have the basic skills needed to secure a job, or manage their finances.

No fundraising required.
