Personal Challenges

Why not set yourself a personal challenge and raise money to help your industry colleagues and the families who are doing it tough. See some examples below of some of our wonderful supporters who have gone above and beyond to raise vital funds for those in need. 

Get on your bike...

No stranger to a long ride, Niall Douglas from Full Circle Travel decided he was ready for his biggest challenge yet. Cycling 300 miles over 4 days - from London to Paris.  The managing director had the ride of his life, all the while raising vital funds for ABTA LifeLine to help support his industry colleagues in need.

''It is not an easy ride but with some training it was utterly enjoyable rather than painful. I have made friends for life, I have raised money for an incredible cause, I got fit and loved every second of the adventure.'' - Niall Douglas

Lace up your hiking boots
One of our Trustee's John de Vial, took up his own personal challenge - competing in the Thames Path 100km Ultra Challenge event. Following along the beauty of the Thames John hit the path like a pro. And with the support of his industry colleagues, John raised more than £2,500 for ABTA LifeLine!                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                            
Run a marathon... or 10

After never having run a mile, former Shearings employee, Caroline Brown set herself the mammoth challenge of participating in 16 running events in a year. From 10k's to 26 - Caroline went the distance to raise money for ABTA LifeLine. Over the course of the year and with support from the whole travel industry, Caroline raised an impressive £3,000. 

''It felt great to be giving back to the industry that served me so well over the years. Every time I met with the LifeLine team and heard about the fantastic new causes they are helping, I am inspired to just keep running and raising money for this amazing charity.''
