40 Challenge

The Stable Family Home Trust (SFHT) was established in 1980 as a therapeutic horticultural environment for adults with learning disabilities. At that time they worked on the land by day and were able to have social opportunities in the evening with their peers. Over the following years we have gradually introduced many additional facilities and services, allowing us to evolve as a service-driven, forward thinking charity, and we are proud to be celebrating our 40-year anniversary this year!


In celebration of SFHT’s 40th Anniversary we would love you to join us in taking part in the ‘40 Challenge’ throughout July. 

Throughout the month you can do your own individual 40 Challenge – maybe you could cycle 40km? or perhaps you might run, jog or walk 4km a day?  strain yourself to do 40 sit ups a day? 40 squats? 40 tennis ball tap-ups? make 40 cup cakes or anything to do with the number 40!

On Saturday 25th July, we had scheduled to hold our annual Summer Fayre, our flagship event. The Summer Fayre is always well attended and generates up to £8,000 in profit for the charity. This year, as the event can no longer go ahead due to the pandemic, we are hoping that your 40 Challenge sponsorship funds raised will go some way to ensuring the losses of the Summer Fayre are mitigated.

In order to make the most of the date and to give everyone something else to partake in, we invite you to gather together for a virtual sponsored exercise challenge, hosted by our friends Rob and Jenny from ‘The Gym Tin’ on Saturday 25th July at 3pm which will be streamed live on Facebook and Zoom from The Stables. The fun event will include chair based exercises and mat based exercises for everyone to join in. Perhaps you could hold your own virtual Summer Fayre from your home to celebrate as well. Please feel free to dress up in 80’s style clothing on the day if you wish or if you’re shy to be seen huffing and puffing then the Facebook participation involves only Rob and Jenny being seen whilst you bound around your front room or garden!

Afterwards we will finish off the 40 Challenge with music from the lovely Ray Foster live from his drive!

All sponsorship proceeds from these challenges will go towards our SFHT Emergency Appeal and our annual running costs.

Here’s to a great 40 Challenge!
