Since 2015 the FatFace Foundation have raised over £400,000 for charities local to our stores - by baking, by making, by singing, by biking, by being different. All thanks to our amazing crew and customers.
This year, are you ready for the next step?
If you want to get involved with Thanks for Giving this year and help us make a difference in your local community and across the UK, there are two ways that both crew and customers can get involved:
With option 1, you can simply donate (any amount will do, it all mounts up… but we recommend £19.88. Why this amount, we hear you ask? Well, firstly it’s the date FatFace was founded (yes, I know we don’t look it, but we really are almost 30 years old!) and secondly it matches the amount we are asking those taking part in our challenge to pledge as a registration fee, before their serious fundraising starts.
Of course, we know all too well that many of you will not rest at a donation, as your competitive spirit and urge to fundraise for important causes is too strong. Which is why we’ve created option 2, our Challenge 2017 fundraising event, where you can compete for a place on our amazing Jurassic Coast Adventure. All proceeds from this event will not only support the FatFace Foundation but will also support 250 local charities chosen by our crew in the locations of our stores. (If you want to know more about the chosen charity local to you we will be posting shortly, but if you simply can’t wait, pop into the store as they would love to tell you more about who they have chosen and why).
What is Challenge 2017?
A charitable fundraising race, where fundraisers will be asked to pledge a minimum amount of £400 which will enable them to join us on an exciting trip to the Jurassic Coast. The trip includes two nights of camping, a one-day 30-mile trek from dawn to dusk and an exclusive afterparty.
We will be walking 30 miles across the demanding challenging terrain of the Jurassic Coast in one day. This will be a tough challenge even for those seasoned walkers among us and will be no easy accomplishment (some training recommended and training packs issued following registration).
The 2-day Jurassic Coast Adventure takes place on 22nd - 24th September 2017.
How do I get involved?
To participate in Challenge 2017, you first need to donate £19.88 as a registration fee ,then it’s entirely up to you how you go on to reach the minimum fundraising target of £400 required to qualify for a place on the trip.
Places on the Jurassic Coast Adventure will be limited, therefore you need to register for Big Challenge 2017 as soon as possible before 30th June and reach the minimum £400 target by 15th September. Registration will close early if we reach our limit, so don’t hang about!
Alternatively, if you’d like to fundraise for Thanks for Giving 2017 but don’t want to register for the Challenge 2017 event, we’d love to have you onboard to help us reach our target and raise as much money as possible for our chosen charities. The easiest way to do this is to set up a Just Giving fundraising page using the button below.
