CHALLENGE YOURSELF AND SUPPORT THE SIR PETER BLAKE TRUST
Sir Peter Blake loved a challenge. From when he was a young boy and first fell in love with the water, to the end of his life, he enjoyed taking on new projects and working hard to see them through to the end. Sir Peter especially wanted to use any attention he got as a result of those challenges to raise people’s awareness about what is going on in our environment, and encourage them to look after it.
If you’ve got a challenge of your own in mind, why not use it to raise some money and help continue Sir Peter Blake’s legacy?
How does it work?
1. Find a fun fundraising idea that you’ll enjoy doing – perhaps a sponsored activity, social event or sporting challenge. Check out the ideas listed below if you haven’t already decided. Just make sure you keep it safe for yourself and anyone else involved.
2. Create a fundraising page and set your goals. Aim high.
3. Once approved, we’ll send you our Fundraising Guide and you’ll be ready to start promoting your fundraiser both online (through Facebook and other social media sites) and offline.
4. Monitor your progress on your very own fundraising page and watch your donations grow towards your goal.

How about a sporting event? There are hundreds of events in New Zealand each year. Fun runs, marathons, Ironman events, cycling, mountaineering and much, much more. Participating in these events is a great way to take on a challenge and raise money for the Sir Peter Blake Trust. Search online for events in your area.
Are you a great host? You could hold a dinner party, afternoon tea, quiz night or barbecue. Invite all your friends and family and ask for a donation to help passionate young environmentalists become great leaders.
Perhaps you could sell something? Clear some space and sell your unwanted goods on Trade Me. Organise a garage sale or ‘swap meet’ for old clothes, books or children’s toys – invite your friends and family, promote it in your local area, charge participants an entrance fee. Not only will you raise money, you’ll be helping our environment by reducing the amount of goods that go to landfill.
Want to give something up? Maybe sugary sweets, Facebook, your mobile phone or any habit you would rather be without? Think of Sir Peter Blake pushing through his own challenges to give you the extra motivation you need to crack it.
Got a special occasion coming up? A birthday, wedding or other celebration? You could ask for donations to the Sir Peter Blake Trust, through your fundraising page, instead of gifts.
