Challenge yourself in Transylvania
Explore the awe-inspiring Transylvanian Alps with Team NSPCC.
Over 5 days, you'll trek through lush green forests and alpine meadows up to the rugged peaks of the Carpathians, reaching heights of 2,200m. You'll camp along the way and even fit in a trip to Transylvania's most famous resident's castle – Count Dracula.
Not only will you get to enjoy breathtaking views and create some unique memories to treasure forever, you'll be helping us in our fight for every childhood.
"The scenery is absolutely incredible, it was like trekking through a fairy tale. The feeling of pride upon making it to the top of the mountains was amazing - especially with such a great group of people."
Vicky, 2017 trekker
How will I reach my fundraising target?
We're here to help you with your fundraising, so don't panic. Karen, who did our 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."
