For too long poverty's been calling the shots, but now it's our turn to take charge. Will you join us?

This year we're giving it everything we've got and we need you to help us. Running, swimming, baking, praying – you name it, whatever you'd love to do, we want to use it to really hit poverty where it hurts. Just imagine ticking something big off your bucket list and raising money for a really life-changing cause at the same time!

We'd love to support you as you take on the challenge. Let us know what you're planning to do, and we'll do what we can to encourage and motivate you as you prepare!

Miles said he would be willing to make it up if I let him sing, but then three other people said they'd pay for him not to sing! We never heard the song...'
