Your soapbox

Click here  for all the instructions for dimensions of your soapbox and the clothing you MUST wear if you are the designated driver and/or passenger.  


It's free to watch your crazy friends launch themselves down a hill in a glorified go-kart.
Coffee and icecream will be available to buy but bring along a picnic and enjoy a day out. We cannot supply parking for spectators but it's just a short walk from Ram Meadow car park to Mount Road. 


Team fee - if you need help raising the £250 team fee please download our fundraising pack for ideas.
We hope though, that you would like to raise money alongside your soap box challenge and, again, you can download the fundraising pack for help.

Money raised at this event will support our Every Heart Matters appeal to help create a fully integrated cardiac centre. However, your fundraising can be for this appeal or wherever else you choose within the hospital to support. 

For more information about our fundraising please contact the team on 01284 712952 or email at fundraising@wsh.nhs.uk.

So what are you waiting for?

We are limited to just 20 teams so make sure you book your place today. It's a great event for friends, for family members or a fantastic team building challenge? 

Go wild, go wacky, be creative and most of all have FUN!
