Step Up! for Royal Voluntary Service

You’ve got 2 weeks! How many miles can you run? or How many steps can you take in just 2 weeks? Set a target in a way that works for you!

We’re challenging you to run or walk and take on some extra steps for Royal Voluntary Service. We need your help so we can continue to give life-changing support when it matters most.

Throughout COVID-19 we’ve been there supporting those in need with hundreds of thousands of calls offering companionship, delivering essential food and prescriptions and transport people to their medical appointments.

Pick your targets

Run: Could you run 5km a day for 2 weeks? Or run 50 miles over 2 weeks? Or set your very own target.

Walk: Can you do 10,000 steps a day over two weeks and reach 140,000?

Or match the number of steps all our hospital volunteers take each day and aim for 170,000 steps over two weeks? That’s 12,142 steps each day! Or set your very own target.

Registration is FREE

£50 could mean we can help and collect shopping and prescriptions for 10 people who are vulnerable and unable to do so during the COVID-19 pandemic. This support will give them reassurance that there is support and remind them that they have not been forgotten.

It’s through your support we can support people like Brian

I wouldn’t be able to have my cancer treatment without Royal Voluntary Service.” Brian

Brian made the heart-breaking decision to stop his Radiotherapy for fear of catching COVID-19 on the long bus journey to and from hospital. Thankfully, the NHS referred him to Royal Voluntary Service who were able to provide safe transportation to get him the treatment he needs to survive.
