Challenge yourself for the Environment

Challenge yourself and support Habitats & Heritage!

Take part in any challenge you choose and raise much needed funds for the environment.

Run, cycle, swim, skydive, hike or create your own challenge. Whether for fitness, achieving a life-long goal or marking a milestone – challenge yourself and support Habitats & Heritage at the same time. As with all small charities, we rely heavily on the generosity of our supporters.

What fundraising money is used for?

The funds raised will help us continue to protect what makes south and west London so special. The rivers, green spaces, parks and historic landscapes of south and west London are under threat from impacts of human behavior; habitat destruction, fragmentation, climate change, neglect and competing commercial interests.

We are working hard to protect our rich natural and historic heritage for all our local communities to treasure and enjoy. Find out more about our work and our projects.
