St David’s 80/8 Challenge – celebrating 80 years of St David’s families.  

Join us in celebrating #StDavidsis80 and raise money for our Adoption Support.  

This year St David’s is marking its 80th year of creating and supporting families. To celebrate this milestone, we are inviting St David’s families to take part in the 80 / 8 challenge.  

For 8 days from 08th August 2022 we are inviting you to take on an 80 challenge over 8 days. It can be anything based on the number 80. So whether you decided to walk 80 steps, bake 80 cupcakes, or dance for 80 minutes, money you raise will help us to continue to offer our unique adoption support, making sure we are here for all our families whenever they need us.
