Stars Appeal Challenges

Have the adventure of a lifetime - and support the Stars Appeal

This is your chance to have the experience of a lifetime while fundraising for your chosen ward, department or campaign within Salisbury District Hospital.

All of the trips are run in friendly groups so they’re ideal for adventurous individuals to take on their own personal challenge, or for groups of friends or colleagues who want new experiences while supporting the Stars Appeal.

The team at Discover Adventure will be on hand throughout your planning to ensure you are well prepared for your trip. And here at the Stars Appeal we will help you with ideas for fundraising activities and publicity.

So go on – take a challenge and help make life better for local people in hospital.

Find a challenge that's perfect for you

In May 2017 Spire FM's Martin Starke, JAS Hair's Jayne Prigent and 33 other Stars Appeal supporters will trek the Inca Trail to Machu Picchu for the Stars Appeal, raising more than £75,000 as they go.

If that inspires you to challenge yourself take a look at our featured treks, or search for treks particularly suited to your interests at Discover Adventure's website.
