Round Rotherham for Sight & Sound

Between 21st June and 21st September 2021

We'd love you to help us raise funds for our charity and help us support people with sight and/or hearing loss locally. That’s why we’re asking you to walk Round Rotherham between June and September and to get sponsored to support our Give Us A Lift Appeal   

What is it?
Rotherham has some fantastic scenery and walks, including the 25 miles Rotherham Round walk, the longer Rotherham Ring Route and lots of smaller walks along dedicated paths, through woodland, along rivers and across urban or country parks.

We’re not setting a specific date due to the current pandemic, but asking you to organise your own challenge at any time that suits you between June and September. What you choose to do is entirely up to you!

Can you complete a set distance over one or more days?
Can you get a team together to complete a Rotherham Relay challenge?
Can’t find the time to do a set route, then why not complete it virtually?

Take part on your own, with family, friends or work colleagues. You can also run, cycle, row or even hop – as long as you complete a set distance from one part of Rotherham to another!

Why should I do it?
We need to raise £70,000 for a new lift and building refurbishment that will make our three-storey centre on Ship Hill more accessible, safer and significantly improved for over 1,600 vision and/or hearing-impaired clients – see RSS Give Us A Lift Appeal

What do I do now?

  • Choose your challenge – if you need inspiration, please give us a call
  • Set up a Just Giving page in support of RSS Give Us A Lift Appeal
  • OR just ask your friends/family to visit Just Giving to make a donation to take part
  • Send us some pictures afterwards and we'll share a selection on social media

We will provide you with the following to support your event:

  • A fundraising pack, including ideas/suggested routes and information on Apps for virtual tracking  .
  • A complimentary T-shirt if you pledge to raise £50 or more

You will receive a thank you letter and certificate after the event to acknowledge how much you raised.

Registration Fee: £5
