 SFHT StepUp2021 Websitei

Fed up with lockdown fatigue and need to set yourself an exercise challenge, then Step Up for Stables this Spring! It’s a great way to get fit and lose weight ready for summer, whilst raising money for a great cause. Complete 2k, 5k, 10k steps a day or set your own walking challenge from anywhere, it’s virtual!


You can Step for Stables wherever you choose. Step outside for a springtime stroll, walk on the spot, complete step ups whilst watching TV or just set up your own walking challenge! There are endless ways to add some extra steps into your day or week. Did you know you could lose about one pound per week simply by completing an extra 10,000 steps each day.

To celebrate your fitness success and with Covid restrictions permitting we will do an END of challenge ½ marathon walk (13 miles) on Sunday 23rd May from Southbourne to Sandbanks Beach and back for those who want to take part or join us on route. This will start at 9am from Bistro on the Beach, Southbourne. We will also host a livestream half way exercise challenge (indoor power walk) with The Gym Tin on Saturday 24th April at 3pm for everyone to take part and get involved in your homes (link to follow).

Why we need your help

The Stable Family Home Trust support people with learning disabilities in Dorset & Hampshire. People with a learning disability already face extreme levels of social isolation and loneliness and have struggled throughout lockdown. The closure of their day services, loss of routine, difficulties staying in touch with family and friends and keeping active has been difficult for them which has had an impact on their mental health and well-being. At a time when lots of fundraising is still affected by the pandemic, your support is more essential than ever! Since Covid-19 the whole charity operation has had to radically change in order to survive and the care staff and fundraising team have been working incredibly hard to keep services going. We need your help to raise funds for vital client activities and by joining our challenge you can make a difference.
