Take on an Action Challenge to raise funds for WLT! SEARCH NEWS

World Land Trust (WLT) can now benefit from a wide range of physically challenging and inspiring group activities organised by Action Challenge.

The prospect of taking on a fundraising challenge can be exciting, but organising one single handed can be daunting.

Action Challenge takes all the hard work out of organising a challenging event and is great for anyone that enjoys camaraderie and pulling together as a team.

So far Action Challenge has helped to raise more than £50 million for charities. WLT is now a participating charity so when a WLT supporter signs up to an Action Challenge, WLT can benefit.

Listed here are just a few of the forthcoming Action Challenge running and cycling events, but there are other trekking and walking activities as well.

If you are looking to stretch yourself and raise funds for WLT, check out the Action Challenge website to register for an event.
