Addenbrooke’s Charitable Trust has launched an appeal to raise £1.5m for a new surgical robot for Addenbrooke’s Hospital and we need your help.

It costs approximately £1,000 per patient to provide robot-assisted surgery. That’s why we’ve launched our 1000 challenge.

Will you take the Addenbrooke’s 1000 Challenge and raise £1000?

Come up with something that you can do 1,000 times and raise at least £1,000. It could be running or cycling 1000km, walking 1,000 steps in your lunch hour for a month, baking and selling 1,000 cupcakes or giving up something for 1,000 hours (42 days). The only limit is your imagination!

1. Register by filling in the form below for the 1000 Challenge and claim your limited edition ‘Buy Addenbrooke’s a Robot’ T-shirt.

3. Create a JustGiving page and start collecting donations from your family and friends.
