UK Challenge 2023

The BDFA is very privileged to be one of four charities supported by Beefy’s Charity Foundation, Lord Ian Botham’s family-led foundation. We are delighted to be working with Beefy’s , also the three other supported charities, Yorkshire Brain Tumour Charity, Blood Cancer UK and Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation (JDRF) to raise funds for our vital work.

This year is the 10th anniversary of Beefy’s Charity Foundation and they have successfully secured a charity partnership with the UK Challenge 2023, the ‘world’s largest team building corporate challenge event’.

The UK Challenge weekend takes place from 20th-23rd July in the Peak District and it promises to be a fantastic experience for all involved. Many corporate and public sector teams have signed up to the challenge, but there is still space for more to be involved. You don’t need to be a corporate team either, families and friends can also enter a team at a greatly discounted rate. If there is interest in forming a BDFA community team then we can support with that.

By participating in the UK Challenge, teams will:

  • Work together in physical and mental challenges, whilst building strong bonds within the team
  • Have an opportunity for all individuals to uncover their strengths and add value to their team.
  • Raise funds for the UK Challenge charity partner, which will ultimately be shared between Beefy’s four supported charities

If you would like to know more or you work for a company or organisation that would really benefit from this experience, whilst raising funds for the BDFA then please do get in touch with Liz Brownnutt, our Head of Fundraising;, 07745 210212.

The UK Challenge raises at least £200,000 through this initiative each year, which would result in significant funding for the BDFA.

The BDFA is very grateful to Beefy’s for their continued and committed support. As one of their charity beneficiaries, we want to help make their 10th Anniversary fundraising endeavours as successful as possible, helping the BDFA to continue to provide the best possible support services for  families affected by Batten disease.
