Whether you want to take part in a run, organise your own 5-a-side tournament or challenge yourself with something new, we are here to help. Every pound raised will help us support more young people facing disadvantage into meaningful careers, changing their lives for the better.

If you are interested in an active challenge, there are two ways to get involved – securing your own place in an event or signing up via one of our places. Whichever route you take, we will be here every step of the way!

LTSB give young people like me an opportunity to compete and show others and myself that I am more than I have been labelled my whole life. They support in the way that school, college, and university couldn’t.

Fundraiser Stories

Taking on the 3 Peaks challenge is no mean feat, but that is exactly what Catherine did:

“Taking on the National Three Peaks Challenge was HUGE on every level. It was the biggest mental and physical endurance challenge I’d ever undertaken, but it was an experience of a lifetime and something I will never forget.

“The motivation to keep pushing through the pain was the great work that LTSB does, supporting amazing young people facing disadvantage to gain life-changing careers. I’m grateful for the support that LTSB gave me throughout the challenge and am overjoyed at the amount we raised”
