#054 Ranger Expeditions' guided challenge walks for Charity Groups & Corporate Teams.

Charities and groups: How Ranger Expeditions can help you in the post-Covid fundraising landscape:
With the vast majority of the population financially suffering from the economic effects of the Covid pandemic. Charities are now struggling to bring in funds to continue their ongoing missions. It’s fair to say Covid-19 has plunged people and charity organisations into crisis.

During the 2020 lower tier levels, when legally permitted, Ranger Expeditions guided small groups within the parameters set by the Government approved National Governing Body for Mountain Leaders. We fully implemented Covid precautions to keep our participants, team members and communities safe, while not impacting upon everyone’s enjoyment of their day.
2021 will eventually bring an easing of restrictions, we have our Covid precautions in place and are looking positively forward.

What will the ‘new normal’ mean for Charities? And how can Charities best go about maximising fundraising potential within the context of ongoing restrictions, especially for large mass start groups? 
Mass participation events have become the mainstay of fundraising strategies over the past couple of decades. These may no longer be possible, appropriate or as popular. Especially if social distancing measures are to continue for several more months. This is where Ranger Expeditions offer a viable alternative which is more than just a stop-gap. We bring proven expertise and experience in guiding smaller, bespoke groups with a focus upon quality, memorable days for every individual.

How can charities adapt to the fact that Covid-19 means many of the population are now barely solvent? 
As a direct consequence of the pandemic, more than ever, people are increasingly likely to need help from charity. Let alone have residual sums of cash to give in minimum sponsorship scheme commitments. People simply have less available to give. Thus making grass roots fundraising even more difficult. Charity participants will encounter a tough post-Covid fundraising landscape and will rightly seek greater value from their ‘challenge day’ as a reward for their efforts.
