With 2020 fast approaching, why not set yourself a positive goal for the month of January or sign up for an event taking place in the new year?

Could you get sponsored to go vegan or vegetarian or have a dry January with no alcohol? You might even give up smoking or vaping or treating yourself to a takeaway coffee every day and instead donate the money you would have spent to your local Hospice.

If you're looking to improve your fitness or take on a real adrenaline fuelled challenge for 2020, sign yourself up for a challenge like MacTuffKiltwalk or even the Stirling Scottish Marathon Festival. There’s plenty time to train, and imagine how proud you would feel crossing that finish line having achieved something that might once have seemed impossible.

Or how about taking a leap of faith with the Strathcarron Highland Swing or the Forth Bridge Abseil? Every penny you raise while achieving your personal goal will make a real difference, helping us to make every moment count for people living with life limiting conditions in your community.

So pick a challenge, large or small, let 2020 be your year, and let’s make a difference together.
