Think of yourself as an intrepid explorer?
Are you ready for an adventure? Join us on this amazing half-term adventure in the fight for every childhood.
This demanding, but rewarding 9-day trek includes 5 full days hiking along the steep staircases and crumbling watchtowers of The Great Wall of China. As well as chance to experience the sights and sounds of Beijing, its Forbidden City and Tianenmen Square.
Every mile you trek and every penny you raise will help us be there when a child needs us. Together we can rebuild children's lives and prevent abuse from ruining anymore.
"Trekking the Great Wall was truly the most unique experience...There were moments where I was pushed out my comfort zone, but the support from the team you’re with pulls you through and the sense of achievement is amazing."
Jordan / 2017 Trekker
How you’ll make a difference
Abuse changes childhoods, but so can we. By taking part in a fundraising event, your donation will make sure that when a child needs a helping hand, we’re there.
How will I reach my fundraising target?
We're here to help you with your fundraising, so don't panic. Karen, who was on the Great Wall of China Trek in October 2017, lets us in on how she smashed her fundraising target and raised over £3,000.
"Once we had made the decision to book in for the trek I set up an online giving page. Next, I wrote down a list of ways to raise money, I then selected what I thought was achievable. I arranged one quiz evening and two coffee mornings. I then began asking local shops and small businesses to donate prizes for raffles and got some teddies for name the teddy competitions.
Then I decided to ring around supermarkets to ask if I could stand in the foyer collecting. Many said no but Sainsbury’s, Morrisons and Lidl said yes and were really helpful. On the stand I did another small raffle and name the teddy which attracted people.At the coffee morning I raised quite a lot of money by playing higher and lower (a la Bruce Forsyth), charging £1 a go. I also made a lucky dip of sweets for the children, and another raffle of cakes that people had donated.
Lastly I made ribbons and asked larger businesses to sponsor me if I had their names on the ribbons, this raised a lot. Some people asked for their children’s names which I thought was lovely."
What your support means
A child contacts Childline every 25 seconds. And it costs £4 to answer their call.
Every penny you raise will make a difference. Your £400 sponsorship could pay for 100 children to get the help and support they need.
