Regional Event: Challenge Events

Challenge events

Why not challenge yourself by taking part in an exciting event while raising money to help the UK's cats and kittens?

From biking and abseiling to running and bungee jumping, whatever you do we can help with your fundraising and provide moral support on the day.

The Chelmsford Adoption Centre is a self funding centre. We need £100,000 a year to run the centre. If you decide to take on any challenges you can raise the money for our centre, just ask the events team. As a centre we can help to publicise your event to help you reach your targets.
