Challenge Yourself!

Fancy doing something a bit different?

If you have an idea for a challenge you'd like to do to raise funds for PET, contact the fundraising team - we'd love to hear from you.

You can be as different as you dare; writer and education specialist, Lewis Owens took on an epic ten-day run to raise much-needed funds for Prisoners’ Education Trust. 

Dr Lewis Owens’ route took him from his home town of Ruislip, West London, to Canterbury, via six churches named after St Martin the patron saint of the poor, homeless and disadvantaged.

He began his challenge event on the 23rd March 2018, starting from St Martin’s Church, Ruislip and ten days later, on Easter Sunday, ended his epic challenge at St Martin’s Church, Canterbury. He stopped at churches dedicated to St Martin at Trafalgar Square in London; Chelsfield, Eynsford and Detling in Kent, along the route.

Lewis covered around 100 miles and he managed to raise an astonishing £9,577. The fundraising comes at a time of particular need for PET, as we fight to meet record demand for courses.
