Charity events

Thinking of running a fund-raising event?

 

Why not contact us, and we'll help you organise it.

 

Okehampton YHA (The Goods Shed)

The site at The Goods Shed is ideal for groups doing fund-raising weekends that use the Granit Way or the Coast to Coast path.

We can organise special events, such as The Great Oke abseil, where you can challenge your participants to abseil off the Meldon Viaduct.  Our team of instructors can provide the back-up and support to run the event, whilst you concentrate on the task of getting participants to raise the sponsorship monies for your chosen charity.  Other events on Dartmoor include, the round Dartmoor Cycle Path, a competitive orienteering event on Dartmoor (like the Ten Tors expedition for young people).  We have a great team of instructors that can help formulate an exciting team challenge event.  Paul, our operation manager, does a great job of organising the entertainment and food. At this site we have a licence that covers music and bar, we can also accommodate visitors in both bunk rooms, en-suite rooms and camping. For example, last year we accommodated the Coast to Coast Cycle Ride (in Aid of the Marie Curie Cancer Fund).

 

Bracken Tor Youth Hostel

The site at Bracken Tor is ideal for groups doing fund-raising weekends, as we have a licence that covers music and bar, we can also accomodate visitors in both bunk rooms, en-suite rooms and campng. For the last 3 years we have hosted a Music weekend raising funds for National Association for Disabled Bikers and Exeter Leukemia Fund and we're happy to announce that the Bracken Tor Chillout will be running in 2012!
