Fundraising

Each Trailwalker team pledges to raise £1,400 for Oxfam and The Gurkha Welfare Trust as part of their challenge. Broken down between all 4 walking team members, this works out at just £350 per person!

We have a number of fundraising resources to help you reach and exceed your fundraising total. On average most teams raise in excess of £1,700, so we hope that with our help, you can smash your sponsorship this year!
