Everyday life has changed quite quickly due to COVID-19. Events or activities that we take part in at the weekend and in our evenings have been cancelled, some people might be working from home, and we’re all wondering what we can do to make life feel as normal as possible.

However whilst life might have changed, the role of University Hospitals Birmingham Charity hasn’t, they are still active supporting the work of the 20,000 members of staff across the UHB hospitals, and helping to fund life-saving equipment for the two million patients that the hospitals treat each year. But they can’t do this without the support of people like you.

That’s why they’ve launched a new Virtual 14 Day Challenge to give you the opportunity to do something different and raise money to support patients at their hospitals, whilst keeping yourself and everyone around you as safe as possible.

With the Virtual 14 Day Challenge you can pick an activity to do in your spare time, or choose something to give up for two weeks, and ask your friends and family to sponsor you. You could try and cycle 200 miles in two weeks, either on the roads or on a static bike at home, you could give up your favourite snack or even make yourself a swear jar.
