Challenging ourselves to raise money for Charity


Over the past 15 or so years, the families and coaches of Destination Judo have raised around £200,000 for a wide range of charitable causes. These have been charities close to the hearts of our members – like The Children’s Marathon Challenge (Children with Leukaemia), Sarah’s Promise, The Nicola Murray Foundation, Finlay’s Friends, Harmeny Education Trust and a few more.

We’ve come up with a wide range of ideas to challenge ourselves and raise money.  We’ve sold merchandise, run raffles and held charity dinners.    Our judoka have learned Japanese, done sponsored throws and completed the ‘Neverest’ challenge.  Coaches and dads have been sponsored to climb, trek and cycle, north, south, east and west – doing what they can to support our chosen causes.

Here are a few of our most memorable challenges.

(We’ve funded these ventures ourselves so that every penny raised has gone to the charities.)
