To support our the work of the charity, we are looking for people who are inspired by the charity and think they can help us through their own fundraising efforts.
Your challenge (should you choose to accept it!) is to raise £1000 for Dot Com by 31 December 2016. Everyone who successfully completes the challenge will be invited to a celebration party at a prestigious venue. Please take a look at the Participant Guidelines to give you some more information about the challenge.
How you raise the funds is completely up to you – you can be as creative or as wacky as you like!
From sponsored runs to swimming the English Channel, cake sales to payroll giving, fancy dress to bag-packing, the possibilities are endless. One person has even volunteered to jump out of an aircraft, despite being terrified of heights!
Whatever you are thinking of doing, we’d love to hear about it.

Our star fundraiser, Ollie!
Meet Ollie, who with the help of his Mum and Dad and the musical talents of his friend, Immy, completed the challenge in record time!
When we launched the Challenge 1000 in September 2015, we didn’t imagine that the first ‘finisher’ would be 9-year old, Ollie. And what an amazing 9-year old he is!
With a little help from his family, Ollie produced an array of beautiful festive handicrafts to sell at a charity coffee morning.
Not content with this, Ollie then arranged with his school to do some busking: providing some seasonal tunes to entertain those attending the annual Christmas lunch.
Ollie’s school, Alverstoke Church of England Junior School, was so impressed with his efforts that they even agreed to donate half their annual Christmas Carol collection money to Dot Com. What a great way to help!
Despite having reached his target, Ollie and his mum, Jo, are not finished yet! Next on the list is a bake sale – hopefully February has ushered in a pause on New Year healthy-eating resolutions…
Thank you, Ollie, for all your hard work – everyone at Dot Com thinks you are wonderful. We are really excited to see what will be next on your list!
