Happy New Year!

As we step into January why not make a New Year’s Resolution to join #TeamSands in 2018 to do something amazing and help raise vital funds and awareness this year!?

From falling through the sky at 120mph; dusting off your trainers and resolving to jog your first 5k - or challenging yourself to run your first marathon, tackling a tough mudder, cycling and trekking all over the world, and everything in between – we would love for you to join us and get involved!

We’ll support you in your fundraising every step of the way. Our team are always on hand with tips and advice, and we can supply you with support packs, Sands t-shirts, collection tins and more.

This year Sands has loads of exciting events we'd love for you to be part of - whatever you’re interested in – we’ve got the challenge for you!
