Wacky For Willen
Venue: Milton Keynes
How Wacky will you be for Willen?
All across our patch this October, people just like you are setting up crazy fundraising challenges to raise funds for Willen Hospice.
There’s no limit to how much fun you can have with this challenge - all we ask is that you raise sponsorship money to back your efforts and support the Hospice.
Keep posting your photos and ideas on social media and be sure you keep your supporters up to date with your progress. They will love your stories and your photos will definitely inspire them to give you more money for all your efforts!
Here are plenty of ways to get involved! If you’d like to go wacky in front of an audience, then sign up to one of our challenges at our showcase event at Middleton Hall, centre:mk on 21 October 2018 from 11am - 5pm.
Feeling brave? Then take on the most fiery challenge of them all at our Halloween Firewalk Finale on 31 October 2018. (Scroll down to book for the Firewalk!)
You'll have a fantastic audience as members of the public stop to watch and cheer you on! We'll be encouraging shoppers and onlookers to make donations to support your wackiness.
Take part in an extreme spice or sauce eating challenge, squish your feet into a bath of mushy peas, be sponsored to do 'fluffy bunnies' with your mouth full of marshmallows, or cream pie a friend for charity. If dancing is your tonic, why not attempt an hour-long flossathon at 3:00pm?
Challenge yourself on our exercise equipment. Unleash your inner sumo or do something outrageous like gladiator duels, take part in our human fruit machine or be a complete show-off with inflatable bungee runs or your latest comedy gig.
Here are some wacky challenges to take part in, at our showcase event this Sunday, 21 October.
Back and Chest Wax (Sorry – Men Only!)
Ready for the burn? Yes it’s going to hurt but….you’re supporting Willen Hospice! Nominate a friend or bravely sign yourself up for an entire chest or back wax.
It’s brave-the-shave time and why not? It's perfect hat weather for it. What better way to raise vital funds for the Hospice? Within 30 minutes you will become an absolute legend. Bring your friends, family work colleagues to cheer you on the whole way and get those all-important snaps!
Bathe in beans or rice pudding
Come and submerge yourself in cold baked beans or in rice pudding, whichever one tickles your fancy or whichever one you would prefer to be put off for life from. Don’t worry this is fully clothed, what you wear however is up to you - we are thinking snorkels, top hats, flippers- just look as wacky as you are willing to go. Please bring a change of clothes & a bin bag, a towel and why not a Sudoku (we will supply an area to get changed).
We all think the hospice deserves a hug and we think you might agree, which is why we would love for you to come and join us in our cosy knitting corner to create a scarf to wrap around the Hospice. We will supply chairs, endless cups of tea and wool. Cosy up with your knitting needles and a can do attitude to knit for our four hour knit-athon from 12:30 – 16:30.
There's still time to plan your 'Wacky' as it runs throughout October. Why not download our sponsorship form to make it easier to fundraise. Go the whole hog and start your own Justgiving fundraising page and tell your own story to get as much support as you can.
We're up for anything 'fun' if you are. (keep it clean, keep it legal) and most of all, make it a memorable day while you raise funds for Willen Hospice.
On the subject of legal stuff, please read our Terms and Conditions for Wacky before booking.
Now for the ultimate challenge!
