Retina UK Challenge Series

Posted on: Tuesday 12 February 2019



The Retina UK Challenge Series is a brand new way to approach your 2019 fundraising with different activities to get involved in throughout the year.

With a range of activities available to take part in there’s something for everyone. You can take part in one, a few or all of the challenges, on your own or as a team. There’s no registration fee or minimum fundraising target, just raise as much as you can. Everyone who signs up will receive a Retina UK t-shirt and a certificate on completion.

The different challenges can be done at any time throughout the year and include:

The Health Kick – swap alcohol for juices/smoothies, go vegetarian or vegan for a month, or join a gym!

The Pancake Challenge – Organise a pancake making competition, take part in your local pancake race or do a competition to invent the best/most unusual pancake filling!
