Take up the LIA challenge

The aim of the LIA President&#39s Challenge is for teams to raise money

to fund a new hospital unit for the Teenage Cancer Trust.

The challenge is to put together a team of eight and raise

sponsorship of at least £500 each. You will then spend 48 hours

competing in a number of events at Barton Hall, a specialist activity

centre in Torquay, Devon. Activities include:

l Abseiling,

l Archery,

l Climbing,

l Survivor,

l Skiing,

l Zip Wire

There are a number of other events that will test teamwork and imagination.

For any team, time spent away from the office can be as crucial as

time spent in it. Ideas flow more freely, people bond more readily

and problems are solved more easily. However, the real reward is

knowing that you are helping teenage cancer patients and making a

great difference in their lives. Enjoy a range of activities and help

raise cash

for charity.

Your commitment

l To raise an average of £500 per individual.

l Book yourself on

the event at a cost of

£157 (this includes two nights&#39 accommodation

in a private en-suite

room at Barton Hall,

all meals and activities).

l Be prepared to be challenged and

have fun.

Do I have to be

physically fit?

While most of the activities require some physical exertion, it is

more about using both the physical and mental strengths of the whole

team. The points system allows for a wide variety of fitness levels

and the challenge cannot be won on fitness alone.

When and how

can I book?

Barton Hall is available

both midweek and at weekends. To check availability and to book, call

directly on

0800 1699783, quoting President&#39s Challenge.

You will also need to confirm your team name and contact details with

the LIA. Email Lyn New
