Treloar’s launches virtual challenge to raise funds for vital deliveries to students

By 15/05/2020 No Comments

Treloar’s based in Alton, Hampshire, has launched its own fun  virtual challenge to raise vital funds during the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.


Step Up For Treloar’s was launched on Monday 11 May to encourage supporters to take on a simple challenge of completing 1,907 steps in any way they wish such as walking, running or climbing steps at home. This number is to celebrate the year that the charity Treloar Trust was founded.


After completing the challenge, participants are encouraged to donate £5 to a special Step Up For Treloar’s JustGiving page and nominate two friends or family to take on the challenge as well.


Money raised from the challenge will go towards supporting the costs of the vital trips that Treloar’s transport team are carrying out to deliver equipment, medicine and supplies to vulnerable students who are shielding with their families at home.


Simon Birch, CEO of Treloar’s said:


“In April, over 100 deliveries were made across the country, crossing thousands of miles, with our fantastic transport team working around the clock six days a week.


Each trip costs on average £70, and these costs are not covered by any other funding. The costs continue to increase as more of our students need our help.”
