Whether you get loved ones to sponsor you or you donate the cost of your guilty pleasure yourself, what could you say NO to this NOvember?
BAN THE BOOZE
Wave goodbye to the wine. Say ‘Laters!’ to the Lager. Could you put away the Prosecco and quit your favourite tipple for November?
FORGET THE FAST FOOD
Banish the burgers. Pack in the pizza. Uninstall UberEats and take a break from your takeaways to raise funds for CHSF this NOvember.
CUT THE COFFEE
Struggle without a Starbucks? Can’t start the day without your Costa? Try the daily grind without your caffeine fix for a month.
CHUCK OUT THE CHOCOLATE
Always craving a Cadbury’s or do you go for a Galaxy? Perhaps you’re lavish and like a Lindt. This is the perfect challenge if you’re a chocoholic!
Heart mum Toni goes tipple-free for CHSF!
“I challenged myself to say no to alcohol for two reasons. First to raise money for CHSF and secondly to get out of bad lockdown habits!! I love a glass of wine or a gin but going through lockdown with two toddlers saw this becoming a daily occurrence rather than a weekly one and I wanted to push myself to get out of this habit!”
“I chose to support CHSF with this challenge as our son, Hugo, had open heart surgery when he was a baby and CHSF provided us not only with support but with accommodation at the hospital during that awful time. They do amazing work in raising money for the heart unit and to support families like us. We will forever be thankful.”
“I won’t lie, it’s been a hard slog but it’s actually had some great benefits. A bit of weight loss, better sleep, saving money and I generally feel better for it. So if you’re thinking of saying “No!” in November and cutting out whatever it is that is your vice, I would say go for it! It’s all in the mind – you can do it!” – Toni, Heart Mum
