Take part in an event

Together we have the power to help.

Taking part in an event is great fun, as well as a fantastic way to show how much you care.

We know that when we need healthcare workers most, they don’t let us down. The physical toll of the COVID-19 pandemic, coupled with the subsequent cost-of-living crisis has been severe, with hospital trusts bringing in food banks to feed staff and many staff suffering from PTSD. The situation is difficult, but there are so many ways you can make a difference.

“I have seen first-hand the immense stress and pressure that NHS staff are under. They work tirelessly to provide care with long hours, difficult conditions, and uncertainty. From the physical strain of wearing PPE for extensive hours to the emotional stress of dealing with increasing numbers and loss, many staff are burned out and exhausted but continue to go on. Staff are now working above and beyond to get through all the things which had to be held during the pandemic whilst still battling it.”

We will support you

We will send you a fundraising pack, full of top tips and advice, in addition to HWF literature to spread awareness of your fundraising and our work. We can also promote your fundraising on our social media channels and in our eNewsletter to let the world know how you are supporting the welfare and wellbeing of healthcare workers nationwide.

Charity Challenge

We are registered with Charity Challenge, which allows you to tick experiences off your own personal bucket list whilst fundraising for your frontline healthcare workers. Events you could join include treks across the Peaks and Lake District, tackling the Machu Picchu trail, climbing Mount Snowdon at night, or cycling from London to Paris.

Got your own challenge in mind? You can run, cycle, swim, or perhaps come up with your own ideas that you can do from home, such as cooking and crafting.

You can find inspiration and more available experiences on the Charity Challenge website.
