30 for 30 challenge


30 for 30 challenge: raising £30,000 to mark 30 years of Gloucestershire Young Carers.

Since 1993 Gloucestershire Young Carers has been supporting young carers across the county, from humble beginnings with just 5 young carers in a café in Stroud to a 26 strong team supporting over 1000 young carers across the entire county!

We’d love you to fundraise for us to help celebrate our exciting 30th anniversary. Take a look, chat with friends, family and colleagues and choose a 30 for 30 challenge and join us in marking this important milestone year.

Help us celebrate our 30th anniversary by taking on one of our 30 for 30 challenges or by creating your own and raise vital funds to enable us to be there for the next 30 years and beyond…

Here’s 30 30-themed charity fundraising ideas to get you started:

Sporty challenges for 30 days...

  • Swim 30 lengths
