With your support, you can help Variety to continue improving the lives of more than one million children and young people throughout the UK who are sick, disabled or disadvantaged. All we ask in return is that you pledge to raise a minimum of £150 in sponsorship.

Raising £200 could pay for a specialist car harness, sensory equipment and learning toys or pay for a child to go on a memorable day out.

You can be the difference in their lives.

Secured your own place?

Fantastic news! By signing up directly with the website, you can secure your own place and STILL raise money for Variety. There is no minimum fundraising target and Variety will support you from the moment you join our team through to the minute you cross that finish line. Get in touch now!
