Charity Activity

Each year Cardgains chooses a different charity to support and since the first event in 1998 supplier, members and staff have raised well over £300,000 through various events including golf days, bike rides, raffles and major walking challenges including The Three Dams Challenge, The Lyke Wake Walk, The Yorkshire Three Peaks, Ben Nevis, a walk of the circumference of Lake Windermere, 'The Windy Wander', 'Withering Thighs' a 25 mile walk around Bronte country in 2015, in 2017 the 'Seaside Shuffle' from Whitby to Scarborough, and in 2018, 27.5 miles in the Lake District, titled 'Kumbaya Cumbria'!


Cardgains Charity Challenge 2019

Once again this year, Cardgains embarked on another challenging walking event entitled ‘Almscliffe Anniversary Amble’ in West Yorkshire. 

The event took place on Thursday 20th June and, in line with our 30th Anniversary celebrations, a total of 30 people walked; 25 did 30 miles and 5 did 30km.  We have already achieved our £10,000 target for this year’s chosen charity, Sue Ryder, and would love to increase this to £15,000!!!
