In 2018, our chief executive Simone Enefer-Doy embarked on a 2,500 mile challenge to visit 47 famous landmarks in England and Wales in just 14 days.
Thanks to volunteers, she was given lifts to each landmark in a truly weird and wonderful variety of transport. We were completely blown away by the response and raised a phenomenal £104,000.
This year we’ve decided to do it all over again!
On Friday 10 May Simone will leave our office in London and embark on this year’s challenge. Volunteers will be providing transport to get her around every county in England and Wales on an epic road trip to raise funds and awareness for our vital work providing life-changing technology to every children’s hospice across the British Isles.
This year will include the Isle of Man, taking the challenge to a total of 48 landmarks in 15 days. We will be asking our volunteers to come up with even wackier transport, which is a challenge in itself considering what we encountered last year! We had a classic Rolls-Royce, a DeLorean, a McLaren, a horse and cart, a zip wire, a tandem bicycle and a speedboat, among many others! This eclectic mix of transport took Simone to landmarks such as Hadrian’s Wall, the Angel of the North, Brighton Pavilion, Blackpool Tower and Bletchley Park. We’ll make this year’s route plan available as soon as we have it finalised.

We’d like to say thank you so much to everyone who helped to make last year’s event such a big success, and to everyone who has already signed up for this year.
Together we can do more for the children using every children’s hospice service across the British Isles, and transport these children with limited lives to a world of unlimited possibilities.
