Sepsis is a serious condition that affects 245,000 people every year in the UK, but together, we can raise awareness and support those in need. By dedicating just 20 minutes of your day to yoga throughout August, you’ll not only enhance your own well-being but also contribute to our vital mission.

  • STEP 2: Click here to register for the challenge & create a fundraising page through Facebook or JustGiving
  • STEP 3: Receive your first donation and we’ll send you a free UKST t-shirt & A4 progress tracker!

By joining our yoga fundraising challenge, you’ll become part of a supportive community dedicated to saving lives from sepsis. Together, we’ll inspire each other, share our progress, and make a meaningful impact.

We can’t wait to welcome you to #YogaTeamUKST!

A fundraising page that can be created and shared through Facebook.

Where is the challenge based? Open

You can take part where you like – whether that’s at home, in the park or on holiday! Wherever works for you.

Who can take part? Open

Whether you’re a seasoned yogi or a complete beginner, yoga is inclusive and adaptable. Everyone can participate, regardless of age, ability, or fitness level.

I have set up a Facebook/JustGiving fundraising page now what do I do to get my t-shirt? Open

If you’ve officially registered (click here if you haven’t!) and you’ve received your first donation, we’ll send you a t-shirt & A4 tracker. Please note that t-shirts will be dispatched twice a week and delivery can take between 5-8 working days.

Can I use JustGiving instead of Facebook? Open

When registering for the challenge, you’ll be given the option to set up a Facebook or JustGiving page (or both!). Please email virtualevents@sepsistrust.org if you have any questions.

How are the funds on my Facebook/JustGiving page donated? Open

All donations kindly made to your Facebook or JustGiving fundraiser will be sent automatically to the UK Sepsis Trust.

What happens if I don’t complete my challenge? Open

Please don’t be disheartened, the most important thing is that you challenged yourself and raised vital awareness of sepsis amongst your family and friends on Facebook.

Do I need to provide evidence to the charity that I have completed the challenge? Open

We trust you! Although you don’t need to provide evidence to us in anyway, make sure to keep your friends and family up to date on Facebook and post photos of your fabulous yoga poses in the Facebook group (if you’re happy to do so)! You can also use your A4 tracker to update your progress through the month.
