Because I Can

“I’m doing this for Bristol’s hospitals because I can."

Come on girls!  If she can, so can you.

Join Team Above & Beyond and choose your challenge. Run, cycle, dance, jump out of a plane or take on a muddy challenge with your pals and make a difference to people like Lucy. See our events page for inspiration or contact our fundraising team on 0117 3700 485 or

"Taking on a challenge gives you an opportunity to learn something about yourself, whilst your efforts are being channelled into a cause that will touch the lives of many patients and their families around Bristol and the South West. I'm doing it because I can - so should you!" Rhiannon, who is taking on the Bristol to Paris Cycle Challenge. 

Whatever you choose to do, wherever you choose to do it we want to hear about it. And we want photo's too so that you can join the Because I Can girls here on the website.

Thank you to Barbara Evripidou and Chas Breton for their fab photography, Point Creative for art direction, Jay Carter-Coles for the video and Mojo Active for making us so welcome. 

Watch our behind the scenes video of the photo shoot here and check out some of our amazing models.
