Please support our Waistland Challenge Team who are fundraising to keep the WORLDwrite volunteer centre afloat. The charity relies solely on donations and has no grant funding to sustain its operations. By supporting our challenge, you will contribute to the continuation of free film and TV training for young adults. Could you sponsor us or join us to shed pounds and make a difference?

About the Waistland Challenge:

Starting from October 1st, our team will be participating in the Waistland Challenge. The aim of this challenge is to shed as much weight as possible and raise a lot in the process. We will be documenting our progress, measuring waists and weighing in regularly to track our achievements. By focusing on our individual weight loss goals, we hope collectively to lose a lot of pounds and gain a lot for the charity.

Why Support the Waistland Challenge Team:

The funds raised will directly pay for the WORLDwrite volunteer centre, enabling the charity to continue providing free film and TV training programmes for young adults who could not afford the kit and studios otherwise. We make challenging educative films and TV too with our young volunteer learners, check out our films and videos on the charity’s website at https://www.worldwrite.org.uk/ We have no grant funding to run our Volunteer Centre which costs just under £5000 a month, and are entirely reliant on our own efforts and the generosity of friends and families. With this appeal we are hoping to stay open into 2024 and find some grant funding for next year to keep going. Your help in making this happen and spurring on our team would be brilliant.

How to Support the Challenge:

There are several ways you can support our Waistland Challenge Team and help keep the WORLDwrite volunteer centre afloat:

1. Make a Donation here on our JustGiving Page-which is totally secure: Your financial contribution will directly support the charity’s volunteer centre costs. Every donation, no matter the size, will make a difference.

2. Spread the Word: Share our challenge and fundraising efforts with your friends, family, and colleagues. The more people who know about our cause, the greater our impact can be.

3. Join the Challenge: If you like our cause and the films we make with young adults, consider joining our challenge team. You can decide on your own weight goals and how you shed 1lbs and you can set your own fundraising target. Just hit the join the team button and most of a page will be created for you..

Thank you so much for your help and support.
