To say “yes” to Gift Aid you must be a UK taxpayer and understand that if you pay less Income Tax and /or Capital Gains Tax in the current tax year than the amount of Gift Aid claimed on all your donations it is your responsibility to pay any difference. 

Gift Aid is equal to 25% of your donation. For example: If you donate £10 and say “yes” to Gift Aid, we can claim £2.50 from the Government. You will need to pay more than £2.50 in Income Tax and/or Capital Gains Tax in that tax year.

We will also need your full name and home address or we cannot claim Gift Aid.  Find out more about Gift Aid.

Only persons aged 18 years or over and resident in Great Britain are eligible to play the CHSW Lottery including CHSW Staff and their families. However, CHSW staff who are directly involved with running the CHSW Raffle and CHSW Directors are not eligible to play.

Unfortunately, if the back marshal has already departed you'll be unable to take part in the run for health and safety reasons. So please ensure you arrive in plenty of time to register and attend the warm up and safety briefing. 

If there is space at a following wave time at Eden or Rosemoor, we may be able to move your space onto the next wave but we can't guarantee this.

We don’t offer internships at CHSW. But if you’re interested in volunteering, you can find a list of current roles on our volunteer opportunities page.

When opportunities for paid roles arise they are advertised in our jobs and volunteering section.

There are no long term harmful effects from the foam either during or after the event. If you get some in your eyes, it may sting slightly, consider wearing sunglasses or goggles. The mixture that we use is drier than most foam; therefore you won’t be soaked and won’t be slipping around in the foam stations. 

The dye in the foam gives vibrant colours however it is a food dye and is water soluble as well as environmentally friendly and completely safe. 

The coloured powder paint is 100% safe and non- toxic. It is biodegradable and will not affect the environment. The paint should not cause harm to participants however we recommend that you don't enter if you have a respiratory, skin or medical condition that could be affected. If you're unsure, please consult your doctor before taking part. 

There will be a safety briefing at 10.45am which all swimmers MUST attend.  Please be ready with your wetsuit on!

We offer short breaks away for the whole family, for respite and relaxation. Mums, Dads, brothers and sisters can all come and stay at our hospices.

We provide one-to-one specialist care for the sick child. This allows the family the chance to have a break away from the worries of caring, and to be together as a family. In this respect, what we provide is completely unlike any other care available.

After signing-in on the day, you will be  taken over as a group to go through an abseil demo - a chance for you to have a go on a grass slope first and have a few practices with an instructor on hand who provides coaching and helps deal with any questions that you might have. So there is no need to worry about previous experience. Even if you let go of the abseil rope during the abseil an instructor at the top will have you on a separate safety rope so you are completely safe throughout your challenge.

There will be around five staff on the day to help you with your abseil including an instructor half way down the abseil to encourage you down and to take action shot photos of you and another instructor at the bottom of the abseil as a friendly face to greet and help you sort out your kit.

You are very well looked after throughout the event and there is plenty of time to have practice abseiling and enjoy the wonderful grounds in which the event is staged.

Yes, the CHSW Raffle is licensed and regulated in Great Britain by the Gambling Commission under account number 4991. View the full Terms and Conditions here.

Yes!  There are several pricing options available on the Skydive Buzz website so if you self-fund your jump, all sponsorship raised would go to CHSW.

You will need a licence from your local authority for an event that includes any of the following activites:

  • provision of food and drink
  • extended hours
  • collecting money or selling goods in a public place
  • sale of alcohol

For more help and advice please contact your local community fundraising team.

We are dedicated to making the most of short and precious lives, providing the best possible hospice care for life-limited children and their families from the South West.  We couldn't continue this work without you.  Read some inspiring stories to see the life-changing impact of our work.  Thank you again for your support.

Absolutely - we will support people taking on all kinds of challenges, and can provide fundraising support and a member of the overseas challenge events team dedicated to looking after you. 

We will absolutely take your word for it! However, if you want to show your supporters you have completed your hike, we recommend you download Strava and link this to your Just Giving page or social media- this can also help increase your fundraising. You can also share this on the Incredible Hike Facebook page so we can all see you efforts! 

You must pay an amount in Income Tax and/or Capital Gains Tax to cover the amount Children's Hospice South West and any other charities or Community Amateur Sports Clubs (CASCs) will reclaim in the tax year (from 6 April to 5 April of the following year). Inheritance Tax, Council Tax and VAT do not qualify towards Gift Aid.

There is no special clothing required. Casual comfortable clothes are best. Please remember, fires can be quite dirty and clothes may become ash-stained. Footwear needs to be easy to remove, and will need to be replaced before going back indoors so a hand towel might be a good idea.

Flip flops are a good idea, especially if the ground is cold.

Nail varnish and toe rings are fine. 

You should have received an email confirmation when you registered. If you haven’t received this, please email our events team or contact your local community fundraiser as your email address might have been entered incorrectly. Please also check your junk mail, as sometimes automated emails may filter into this mail box.

Registrants attending the event in Falmouth will pay a registration fee of £10 which includes your on the night entry, T shirt, pasty, hot drink, goody bag and 30th Anniversary commemorative medal. It also includes the postal mailing of your memory pack that contains your memory box, candle bag, tea light and Memory Ceremony Service booklet and "I am walking for" back sign. 

If you have chosen the virtual walking option for this event, you will receive a memory pack through the post and a commemorative medal if you raise sponsorship of £30.  As this is a charity event, we ask that you raise sponsorship to ensure that local families can continue to receive the vital care that Children’s Hospice South West offers. 

Yes of course! The route takes place on pavements, but you will be required to cross roads, so you may require assistance. A named carer will be welcomed to join you to provide assistance on the night. Please call Little Harbour fundraising office on 01726 871 800 to discuss further. 

Injuries and illnesses happen - they're part of life. If you are unable to take part in your challenge, the most important thing for you to do is to let us know as soon as possible. Depending on when you pull out, we might be able to give your place to somebody else, so that Children’s Hospice South West does not lose out. We will also be able to advise you on who to alert to the fact that you will have to pull out - you may need to tell the challenge tour operator, and you may need to refer to the terms and conditions of your booking - especially for overseas adventures. 

If you are unable to take part in your chosen challenge, and you have already raised sponsorship for your challenge, you will need to get in touch with everyone who has supported you to let them know that you are not actually doing the challenge they have sponsored you for. You should give them the right to request a refund on their donation. If you do not take part in your challenge, then we will not still ask you to pay in the minimum sponsorship requirement. Any registration fees you have paid are, however, non-refundable. 

Setting up a dedication a part of this event is optional. You are welcome to take part and remember your loved one by personalising your memory box and candle bag. However, if you decide you would still like your loved ones name/s to be a part of the live memory ceremony, please email Kiley.

Only the Children's Hospice South West and HM Revenue and Customs. We will not share it with anyone else.

The event is organised by CHSW and Paul Boddington UX2, who is appointed to arrange all operational aspects of the walk (including route planning and health and safety).

You should receive all your purchases within fourteen working days of placing your order. Working days are Monday to Friday, excluding Bank Holidays.

If you have not received your order and it is after the expected date of arrival (allowing a couple of days for postal delays) then please contact us so we can look into this for you and, if appropriate, send a replacement. We can change the delivery address of any replacements if required.

If you are a 40% or 45% taxpayer, Payroll Giving is the only way we can automatically receive all your tax on a donation. You will receive tax relief at the highest rate of tax you pay; so each pound you give, will only cost you 60p.

Winners must verify their details and claim their prize within six (6) months of the draw date, after which CHSW will treat the prize as a donation.

If you're attending one of our events in person you will receive a medal at the finish line. 

If you're taking part virtually, we'll be sending a medal to each person in your group when the suggested minimum sponsorship of £15 is raised for the number you have registered.  

Visit our fundraising ideas section with lots of seasonal sponsorship ideas. Your medal will be sent in the weeks following the Santa weekend! 

Yes you can. If you think your disability might make it difficult for you to volunteer, please call us on 01271 325 270 and have a chat with our HR team about your needs. We can advise on which of our opportunities are accessible to you.

CHSW work in partnership with Adventure Café Ltd. to ensure the ride will be route marked, with an experienced support crew who will provide first aid and mechanical assistance across the three days. We would expect that you would be able to do simple bike repairs/maintenance in the event of a puncture during the event. CHSW staff will also be on hand to offer emotional support, encouragement along the way and huge cheers as you reach each hospice.

The CHSW lottery uses lottery software licenced and regulated by the gambling commission. Players receive a unique randomly selected draw number(s) created by this software.

All lottery numbers paid in advance are entered into a computerised randomly selected weekly draw which normally takes place every Friday. Once a number is drawn it is removed from the draw therefore it is not possible for one number to win more than one prize. Prizes are allocated in the order of prize value.

To ensure we keep everyone safe, we'll be putting in place extra measures across our events to reduce the risk of transmission of Covid-19.  Following Government guidance, we'll also be asking all event participants and staff members over the aged of 16 to bring with them proof of their NHS Covid Pass or NHS App which will be checked upon entry to the event village at each Santa venue.

You must be able to provide one of the following: 

  • Proof of negative Lateral flow test taken 24 hours before arriving on site or attending the event 
  • Proof of double vaccinations or single dose of Janssen vaccine 
  • Negative PCR test or rapid lateral flow test within the past 24 hours 
  • Positive PCR test within the past 180 days showing natural immunity following a COVID infection 

Everyone is being encouraged to take rapid Covid-19 tests at home twice a week to help stop the virus from spreading. This includes people who've had their vaccinations. This isn't compulsory, but we're hoping that in order to protect everyone at the event, you'll recognise the benefits of getting involved in testing to reduce the spread of the virus. 

We will also be advising masks to be worn inside The Gallery, Bristol and at The Eden Project. 

We ask volunteers to pay their own expenses as we feel as much money as possible raised should go directly to support and care for our children and families.

The paint will only be thrown in our designated stations by trained throwers. The paint will be aimed onto the body of the runners rather than the face to reduce the amount of paint getting into the mouth, nose and eyes. 

We recommend that you consider wearing sunglasses or goggles to protect your eyes from the colour as you will inevitably get some paint on your head and face. Runners who are not so keen to be in the direct firing line of the  throwers are recommended to stick to the inside of the running lane to receive the least amount of paint.  Use the outside lane for maximum explosions of the colour! 

Creating a Virgin Money Giving page is quick and easy – take a look at their step by step guides.

Families are advised on how and when they are able to book hospice stays. In addition to planned respite nights, emergency stays can be arranged. These are organised on an “as needed” basis.

The way families use their respite stays is determined to suit their personal circumstances, we aim to be as flexible as possible in responding to needs. Some families prefer long visits while others might choose a weekend every few months. We hope each family would feel free to discuss their individual needs with us.

Canonteign Falls is a tough abseil and you will need to be fit and reasonably confident on your feet to be able to get to the top of the abseil and climb over the fence at the top. If you have any doubt in your ability to take part in the abseil please discuss this with your event organisers.

Being able to walk quickly up a flight of stairs, jump a foot off the ground and climb over obstacles such as fences unaided, would be a good example of mobility needed. If you are in any doubt about your fitness / mobility to participate in abseil event you have chosen, please consult the abseil organisers first and then your doctor if needed.

Please call 01271 313 311, Monday to Friday from 9.00am to 4.30pm. At all other times please leave a message on our answerphone or complete our online enquiry form.

Yes, you can reserve a DVD of your jump for £140; photographs for £140; or a DVD and photograph package for £185.

We have many walkers who have been pregnant, have diabetes, are stroke survivors, blind or have many other conditions.

None have been an issue. However, we always recommend that if in doubt seek advice from your doctor.

In order to confirm your charity place in a race, you'll need to confirm your details with the race organisers. As a participant in the event, you'll need to agree to their terms and conditions and let them know you’re running with a charity place. If you don't complete this second stage of the registration process by the specified deadline, you won't able to take part on the day. This second part to the registration process is at no extra cost.

You need to remember to bring your walker number and “ I am walking in memory of…” sign along with your decorated candle bag to hand in to our memory team. We also recommend you bring a torch and mobile phone.

Our overseas adventures are all run by tour operators on our behalf, as the tour operators have the experience, insurance and ATOL protection necessary to run these kinds of challenges. Therefore, registration fees should be sent directly to the appropriate tour operator when you complete your booking form. 

Please note also, that the terms and conditions of your booking are with the tour operator rather than with Children’s Hospice South West - we will only stipulate fundraising terms and conditions, and do not have any control over insurance, travel arrangements or anything else to do with the trip itself. If you would like more information about this, then just get in touch.

A dedication is where you can add the name and a photo of loved ones you are remembering. You can also leave a special message for them. This is free to do and we welcome you to set up more than one dedication in memory of more than one person.

Set up your dedication

Only the Children's Hospice South West and HM Revenue and Customs. We will not share it with anyone else.

There will be toilet facilities available at the start The Bush Inn and at the finish line at Hartland Quay. In between these points you will need to find an appropriate area off the trail. Please bring a small amount of toilet paper with you and ensure you remove all litter afterwards. Nappy sacks are great for carrying toilet paper and other refuse. 

Worldpay will not accept any postcodes that do not contain a space. Please enter a space in the correct place in your postcode.

Payroll Giving is taken straight from your gross (pre-tax) pay so there is no need for us to choose to claim the tax back through Gift Aid – saving us admin costs.

If you are a 40% or 45% taxpayer, Payroll Giving is the only way we can automatically receive all your tax on a donation.

Winners will be notified within one week of the draw date by their preferred method of contact where their details will be verified. Once verified a cheque is sent by post. Winning ticket numbers are also published on the CHSW website.

If you're taking part with colleagues from your work place, please sign up using the online registration form and include your company name within the group. You can add your work colleagues' names here or alternatively email Kiley.

Volunteers are covered by CHSW's insurance policy while engaged in any work on behalf of CHSW.

Your bike will be your best friend during the three long days of cycling - we strongly advise that you use a road bike as they will help you go faster and will be more comfortable. When choosing which bike to use remember the terrain, you may wish to leave the carbon wheels at home! Due to technical and vehicle support over the weekend provided by Adventure Cafe, only suitable single rider road bikes can take part. You can complete the ride on a hybrid or mountain bike but these will be slower and you must have slick road tyres and inflate them to the highest possible pressure. Electric bikes are not permitted.

Gift Aid only applies to personal donations, so your company donation will not be eligible. For a charity to benefit from the tax on a company donation, the donation should be paid gross (without deducting Income Tax). The company can then claim tax relief when calculating its profits for Corporation Tax. For further information, please contact your Tax Office or accountants

In the 2019/20 financial year net proceeds from the CHSW Lottery were £537,313, raising a minimum of 72p in every £1 directly for CHSW and the care it provides. The remaining 28p split between expenses (18p in every £1) and prizes (10p in every £1).

You can decide to compete your run where you feel it will be most fun!  You can complete it around your own home or whilst out on your daily exercise or a devised special route - it is freestyle in your way!  

We ask you ensure you complete it keeping to Government guidelines and in a space with keeps to social distancing of two metres away from the general public.   

Not necessarily, this will depend on what your criminal record is for and the role you are applying for. We reserve the right to make a decision on a case by case basis.

We suggest that the best way to complete the obstacle inflatables is to crawl across them to avoid falling and breaking any bones or twisting little ankles. There will be marshals at each inflatable to ensure all participants are crossing the inflatables safely and to stagger the number of participants on the inflatable at any one time. 

  • For the 500m you will need to be aged between 12 – 16
  • For the 1000m you will need to be a minimum age of 14

CHSW operates a Sibling Service at each hospice, providing dedicated support and care to the brothers and sisters of life-limited children.

During family stays, the siblings can spend as much or as little time as needed with a devoted sibling team. Contact is maintained with the siblings during their time at the hospice, between visits with newsletters, emails and days out and after their brother or sister’s death, for as long as they need.

Yes, as long as you are all registered to do the abseil on the same date.  Please state your preferred abseil times when you register and we will try our very best to get you abseiling in the same group.

Please call 01271 313 311, Monday to Friday from 9.00am to 4.30pm. At all other times please leave a message on our answerphone or complete our online enquiry form.

The minimum age is 16 years and there is no upper age limit.  If you are aged under 18 you must obtain parental consent using BPA form 106.

All forms can be downloaded from the Skydive Buzz website.

Own place refers to a runner obtaining their own place in an event (eg. purchasing your race place directly with the race organisers). And of course we would love you to use your place to run for CHSW.

There are plenty of ways you can get your fundraising started for minimal costs. Local companies may sponsor your event, donate goods or lend you their services for free. Take a look at our fundraising ideas page for simple ways to keep costs low.

We have a team of fundraisers here at CHSW  who are on hand to offer you any ideas and advice you may need. Our first tip would be to set up an online fundraising page on Virgin Money Giving, and then to investigate whether your company or any local businesses will be able to support you.

There are lots of ways to pay in your sponsorship. 

We recommend you do not send any cash in the post. Please pay the money raised into your bank account and then make a donation on our online donation page.

There is an inherent risk in any activity involving fire. It is important that participants pay attention to all the training and heed the advice and instruction of the trainer, firewatchers and spotters. Whilst absolute safety is not guaranteed, proper procedure reduces risk to the achievable minimum.

The race pack containing your race number will be sent by the event organisers. Please visit the FAQs section on the event organiser’s website for more details. We'll send a separate race pack containing your CHSW running vest, if you have given us your size. 

Unfortunately there are no facilities and we cannot accept liability for anything you leave behind. Please bring only what you need and are able to carry for the night.

Yes - we promote the events run by our preferred tour operators. Those tour operators will run several events a year, according to their own schedules. However, if you cannot make the dates they have on offer, we could look at an alternative tour operator for you so that you can still do your dream challenge - just get in touch with us and we will try our best to find a suitable event date for you. 

Of course - you'll have a link to share with friends and family members to view the dedication via the Moonlight Memory Walk webpage. They can then make a donation.

No you don't.  We'll take your word for it. However, if you want to show your supporters you have completed your chosen distance, we recommend you download Strava and link this to your Just Giving page or social media.  This can also help increase your fundraising.   

Yes, we welcome volunteer expertise and ask that you complete our enquiry form with a brief description of your professional background. 

Just remember that the foam is water based so if you stay in foam too long your devices will get wet. It’s a good idea to take some precautions to protect your device, or leave this with your cheer squad. 

Approximately two weeks before the event.

Absolutely! Whatever event you are taking part in we would love you to join Team CHSW. Phone your local hospice or email event@chsw.org.uk and we'll send you a fundraising pack and CHSW running top.

As all teenagers wish to be independent, the hospice also holds teenage focused weekends, giving them the opportunity to come and stay without their families. 

Three different weekends are arranged each year, plus one sensory teenage week. The weekends are often themed to suit varied interests including pamper days, cars and games.

It gives the teenagers the chance to socialise with others and time to talk about their experiences.

We can accommodate people up to 18 stone in weight, but no more due to the restrictions on equipment and loads exerted, although they may need to be fitted with extra equipment for their comfort. If you have anyone wishing to take part who is heavier than 18 stone you can contact us as soon as possible to discuss the possibility of their participation.

Dave Talbot Ltd reserves the right to decline an individual’s participation should their build be deemed unsuitable for the activity.
