Beacon of Light Challenge

Beacon of Light FINAL1st to 30th June 2021

Join us as we remember those that are no longer with us, as we celebrate their lives

This June we want to take the time to remember those we have sadly lost and to take a moment to reflect over the past year.  What better way to celebrate a cherished loved one than to take on a challenge in their memory, showing that life goes on and you will do your best to live it to the fullest, despite missing them so much.

The challenge you set is entirely up to you, but our end goal is the same, to unite, remember, celebrate and shine a light in their honour. 


What is the challenge?

Our Beacon of Light Challenge is your chance to achieve your goal, after all, one person’s goal is totally inaccessible to another, so we want you to decide what will be a challenge for you.

Whether you walk, dance, flip 100 pancakes, skydive, bake a record-breaking sized pie, or run around the garden with a toddler, the choice is yours. You choose your method and goal. Have you taken up a new sport and want to reach a target, have you been ill and want to have an aim to help you with your recovery or is there just something you have always wanted to achieve?

It’s a great opportunity for everyone to get involved and get a little active and creative and to fundraise for your local NHS Charity. Will you be sponsored per lap of the garden, per pancake flip or for a certain time?   



The Beacon of Light

The past year has given challenges to many, leaving us grief stricken and mentally and physically exhausted. While we each have our personal goal, we hope you will join us for the ultimate goal of shining a light to a brighter future.

Here, at My WiSH Charity, we want to help you move forward, to celebrate the lives of loved ones we have so tragically lost, join friends and families together to remember our fallen heroes and to give thanks that we are here to see another day.

The Beacon of Light is our metaphor to brighter days and we hope, when you have completed your challenge, that you will stand together and shine your Beacon of Light. It could be your phone or it could be a candle, but shine it high and take a moment to reflect on your loved one and towards a different future.


How will my money help?

When you start your fundraising page, you can choose the area of the hospital you wish to support. This could be one of our appeals, a ward or a department who have taken care of you or a loved one, or you could donate to our general fund so we enhance care wherever it’s needed at West Suffolk NHS Foundation Trust.
