Big Change
Big Change has a fundamental belief in the UK’s young people. They’re our priority, our passion, and our inspiration. And everything we do is designed to help them be the very best version of themselves. Helping them rise above and beyond their circumstances, and giving them the opportunity, motivation and courage to see the positive differences they can make for themselves, for others, and for their community. How do we do it? By identifying, partnering with and connecting like-minded organisations and individuals who are all striving to accelerate positive change. We raise money and awareness around key issues for youth in the UK. We support the people and projects at the heart of communities that are doing important, innovative work at ground level to make a real difference. And they’re people who are not afraid to work together to bring brilliant ideas to life.

So can we raise £10K in 2017 for Big Change through the power of the human body? Let's dare to fail and see what happens.

A series of challenges completed by the Wolfpack and friends over the course of the year. 

Follow our challenge on James' Instagram feed or like our page on Facebook

Why 10K?

We've raised money for charity before, so when deciding to raise money for a Big Change as one of our 2017 goals we wanted to pick a number that felt uncomfortable and potentially unachievable. £10K was that number. 

Why Big Change?

James was privileged to join members of the Big Change crew on the Virgin Strive Challenge last year. It was an epic adventure and the mindset of the team that runs Big Change is typified by the projects and the work that they do. Big Change, provides early-stage funding for innovative projects that can drive long-term change in the way we support young people in the UK, equipping them with the tools and confidence to thrive in life, not just exams.
