1858 Challenge

The Railway Benefit Fund was founded in 1858- that’s over 160 years ago! As part of Railway Family Week, we want you to fundraise for us using our founding number: 1858. Do it alone or get together virtually with your friends, family or colleagues and fundraise for us on the theme of 1858.

Can you raise £1,858 or £18.58 or even £18,580? Can you or your team cycle, run or walk 1,858 miles, km or steps? Can you set yourself a challenge at 18:58 every night? Could you raise £18.58 by selling cakes?
