A POPULAR Dorset charity is looking for daredevils and competitors to take on a range of different challenges to raise money for the aid organisation.

With over five events to choose from, on two wheels or on foot, Julia’s House are looking for extra funding to help continue its support and care to the families of children with life-limiting or life-threatening conditions in Dorset and Wiltshire.

Participants can choose from a trek to Machu Picchu through the Peruvian Andes mountain range, a walk along the breath-taking Jurassic Coast or among ancient Wiltshire landmarks, a tandem skydive from 13,000 feet, the Big Ride cycle challenge with a choice of three distances, or the new look Run Bournemouth event with a range of distances, junior races and a new dog jog for 2020.

Challenge Events Manager for Julia’s House Hannah Miller said: “Our challenge events are so rewarding as you know you’re not only challenging yourself, but you’re also making a life changing difference to local children and their families who face their own huge challenges every day.”

Julia’s House relies on public donations, fundraising and legacies for 95 per cent of the money needed to run its vital service.

The charity currently supports 166 families across Dorset and Wiltshire and the number is rising as medical and scientific advances mean more children are being born and living longer with life-limiting conditions.

Hannah added: “Our families are in desperate need of the very special support we provide out and about in the community or at our hospices.

“We need people to sign up, take a challenge and fundraise, so we can continue to make a life changing difference.

“There isn’t a better feeling than achieving a personal goal knowing that it is helping others. Spaces are limited so people need to register as soon as they can.”

The challenge season begins on Saturday June 7 with the Jurassic Coast trek along Dorset’s stunning coastline, followed by The Big Jump sky dive on Saturday August 1.
