At the heart of what we do remains our core purpose to help improve other people’s lives. Since 2014 we have raised over £100,000 for charity.
We have also seen the intangible benefits of our work where people have started to push themselves in their own ways as a result of involvement in our events or children who believe they can achieve their own dreams because they met someone who inspired them at our events.
Below are the charities that we have supported to date through our challenges and events.
Get Your Move On!
The FCG EPIC Week is back for 2018 and this year we are aiming to get as many people of all ages and physical abilities to take part and get moving.
Following the success of last year we are to raise money for two fantastic local charities whilst inspiring people to take on new challenges, become more active and push themselves to their personal limits – whatever that may be.
Much like last year you can sign-up as an individual or a team for this unique community event and challenge yourself to do something you have not done before, raise money for two amazing charities and inspire others to be active and take on new challenges.
The difference this year is that the FCG EPIC Week is open to any sporting or physical activity, making it accessible for all. We have provided a comprehensive drop-down list of sports and activities to choose your 7 day challenge from. When you have selected your sport or activity you can the enter details regarding the distance or time in the free text field.
On sign-up you will be given the option of buying branded merchandise for your epic challenge, includng t-shirts, cycling jerseys and neck-buffs in a range of sizes. Once registered, you will be automatically set-up with an online fundraising page which we encourage you to share with as many people as possible.
We are aiming to raise £15,000 through The FCG EPIC Week. Please make sure you share your sponsorship details with as many people as possible. The event is raising money for two great Guernsey based charities, This Is EPIC and Guernsey Cheshire Home.
