Join us for a 50km charity challenge!

We have a new and exciting charity challenge for you to get involved in – Widehorizons Adventure Challenge on Saturday 4th October 2014.

The event, supported by Nikwax and Páramo, challenges teams of two to four to cycle 37km, canoe 3km, and run 10km (50km in total), across the beautiful South-East countryside, including Bedgebury Forest and Scotney Castle.  All funds raised will go towards providing disadvantaged children with their first ever outdoors adventure, as part of the Nikwax, Páramo and Widehorizons ‘First Adventure Days’ campaign. Just £27 can give a child their First Adventure Day and, with your support, we are aiming to provide 10,000 First Adventure Days!

The challenge will begin at the beautiful Bewl Water reservoir in Kent, and each participant has a fundraising target of £270.

Gets the kids involved in our Schools Adventure Challenge

Nikwax and Páramo are sponsoring the Widehorizons Schools Adventure Challenge on Friday 4th July 2014 at Bewl Water, Kent.

The challenge allows children to experience adventure the way it’s meant to be – offering the chance to conquer new challenges, learn new skills, buzz with excitement and take home fantastic memories.

This 5-mile adventure walk is for pupils in Year 5, 6, 7, and 8. In teams of six, the children will walk part of the trail around Bewl Water reservoir and complete four mystery challenges along the way! They’ll also enjoy a free ferry ride across Bewl Water itself, giving them a chance to take in the stunning surroundings. This challenge will help to improve the group’s communication and teamwork, and give them a huge sense of achievement.

Each pupil has a £15 fundraising target and all money raised will be set aside so their school can experience future adventures at one of Widehorizons’ Adventure Centres.

Widehorizons will provide a medal for every child that takes part, a completely arrowed and marshalled course, a fundraising guide jam-packed with ideas to help reach the target, and a lesson plan pack for use in school in the lead up to the challenge

There is ample coach and minibus parking at Bewl Water, plus toilets and light refreshments on site.
