Join us for our first horse racing fundraiser evening

Forever Colours is putting on its first horse racing fundraiser evening!

On November 25th, we’ll be hosting a fun-packed evening at The Red Lion pub in Milton Keynes.

You’ll get to watch and bet on some exciting horse races from the past, and if your horse wins, you’ll get half the prize money – with the other half being donated to Forever Colours Children’s Hospice.

There’s also the opportunity for individuals and businesses to “sponsor” each race for £30, with the sponsorship money being added to the fundraising total for the evening.

On the evening there’ll be a live compere and a band to follow, so you can dance the night away whilst celebrating your winnings!


Event details

The Red Lion, 11 Lock View Lane, MK1 1BY

7pm, Saturday 25 November

"Together We Climb"

An intrepid team of Forever Colours staff, family and friends are joining together to take on the challenge of a lifetime – climbing Mount Kilimanjaro in Tanzania!

In January 2024, our team will embark on one of Earth’s great challenges to raise funds for our charity, so it can continue to support families for years to come.

We will be aiming to raise funds from every corner of society to help us reach our target of £100,000.

So far we have raised £29,500 of our £100,000 target!

29500

About the challenge

At over 19,000 feet (5,895 metres), Mount Kilimanjaro is Africa’s highest peak, and the highest single free-standing mountain in the world. Located in Tanzania in the east of the continent, it offers climbers a vast range in terrain, from hot, dry savannah at the base, through heath and moorland, to a rocky, ice-capped summit. Most treks to the top and back down take between five and nine days to complete—for those who can withstand the severe changes in altitude.

Best of luck to the team in their training for what will surely be the challenge of a lifetime!

How we will use the funds

The climb will raise funds to help us sustain and grow our incredible charity in the years to come.

It will go towards helping children such as Rayan, diagnosed at 10 months old with a condition called Infantile Epilepsy Encephalopathy TBC1D24. Unfortunately with this condition he is unable to talk, walk and relies on a feeding tube for nutrition, and has multiple daily seizures. According to Rayan’s family, Forever Colours has been a “lifeline” for them. We will continue to be there for the family with the help from fundraisers such as the Kilimanjaro climb.

Help us reach our target

We are currently organising the best way to collect funds for the challenge.

We are limited by online platforms such as JustGiving as they do not allow us to show funds donated privately outside their websites, but we are working on a way to do so.

In the meantime, if you would like to donate or help us raise funds for the climb, please enter your email address below and we will get in touch shortly.

Thanks!

    Mont Blanc fundraiser back on!

    Mont Blanc Fundraising Challenge is back on!

    Now that restrictions have been lifted, we are pleased to announce we have a new date for our Mont Blanc Fundraising Challenge! The team will attempt to climb Europe’s highest peak on July 5th 2022.

    Once again we are reminding everyone of our fundraising goals and hope to reach the £30k target before the team head up that mountain. For more information see below, and to donate simply click the button and you’ll be taken to our GoFundMe page where you can make your donation.

    Mont Blanc Fundraising Challenge

    We have a team of 8 crazy individuals, who together are raising £30k to raise money for Forever Colours Children’s Hospice. What do they need to do? Well, only climb 4,810 meters up one of the planets most gruelling mountains.

    Donate Now

    The Challenge

    Over the space of 1 week in September, 8 very brave and crazy individuals, will take on the challenge of an endurance climb to the top of Mont Blanc. At 4,810 meters, Mont Blanc is the tallest peak in the Alps. Our brave team will spend 3 days altitude training and 4 nights in mountain huts as they brave treacherous terrain and conditions to reach the summit.

    The 8 mad men attempting this are:

    • Oli Finn
    • Mark Tilley
    • Paul Sawyer
    • Benji Sargison
    • Ben Lander
    • Magid El-Amin
    • Phil Parker
    • Jules Adams
    • Martin Garthwaite

    As we get closer we will update you with more news and fundraisers that you can get involved in and help the guys get to their goal of £30K raised.

    The Fundraiser

    No matter how hard the challenge is that the boys are undertaking, we are under no illusion that the pain and difficulty of this challenge is temporary. We are looking to raise money for families that go through pain and hardship everyday and need the support of Forever Colours on so many levels. £30k will pay for two carers to have five children on their case loads for a year. The families that the hospice support through a number of different services have life limiting or life threatening conditions as well as families who have children who suffer from PMLD (Profound and Multiple Learning Difficulties).  Through family activity days, respite at the family home, play therapy, sibling support, advocacy, there are lots of ways Forever Colours support the families.  However, the charity rely solely on funds raised through public and corporate donations.  Raising this money is vital for the support of these families. If you would like to support and help raise funds, then please follow the link below. Thank you for your support. And good luck to the boys climbing Mont Blanc!

    Mont Blanc fundraiser postponed due to Covid

    Depending on which way you look at it, we have either some good and bad news. The bad news is, due to enforced quarantine restrictions due to Covid-19, we have had no choice but to postpone our ascent of Mont Blanc to June 2022. The boys on the climb are obviously disappointed by this news. However, now that we have been given our new dates of 19th June 2022, we realise it is in fact a great opportunity.

    We knew there was always a risk of this happening due to the ongoing problems presented by the Covid-19 pandemic. Our new confirmed date actually gives us more time to be prepared for the climb, and most importantly raise even more funds for an amazing cause. Training doesn’t stop and we want nothing more than to smash our target of 30k now that we have been given more time.

    More training videos coming your way as well as lots of fundraising events.

    If you’re interested in being part of the team, please get in contact. Similarly, if you have any other ideas and want to raise money for the charity, then please contact Jules directly, jules@forevercolourshospice.org.uk

    Parent Pamper Packs

    My eyes are closing yet I can’t sleep.

    Thoughts and ideas are going around and around in my head. What can I do to make a difference to our children while they have been in lockdown?

    Then it came to me that maybe we should be thinking about all the amazing parents and carers that have had to do all the schooling and caring themselves with probably very little sleep and no rest or break at all.

    I jumped out of bed first thing the next morning and heading to the shops to put together some Pamper Packs for our parents and carers. It is just as important to support them in these difficult times as it is to support their kids

    There is nothing quite like knowing that someone is thinking about and respecting all the hard work that you do.

    Easter treats for the kids

    Covid will not stop us!!! If we can’t bring our kids to an Easter event, then we will bring an Easter event to the kids. Even though nothing can replace seeing our family’s face to face the weather is looking brighter which always makes you feel better and it excites us even more because it means that our Easter baskets will bring even more enjoyment too our children.

    With the support from our local Morrisons and our wonderful carers and shopping and warping mad Junior Ambassadors, we have been able to put together some exciting fun for the children this Easter holiday.

    The children have all been delivered Easter eggs, eggs for hunting with little basket to collect them in, as well as super cute bunny’s with matching ears and Bonnets to decorate. The response that we received from our family was overwhelming and the cheeky smile filled my heart with warmth and joy. I am left with drive to put more ideas to paper and plan something for the next school brake. Could this be the one we finally are able to meet face to face again? I can’t wait.
