Countryfile Ramble for BBC Children in Need

The Countryfile Ramble for BBC Children in Need 2017

2017’s Countryfile Ramble for BBC Children in Need weekend has now taken place. A masive 'thank you' to the thousands of you who took part. By simply putting one foot in front of another you will have helped change the lives of some of Britain’s most disadvantaged youngsters. And remember, even if you missed the ramble weekend – it’s never too late to put on your own ramble. Simply download a sponsorship for or sign up to our ‘virtual ramble’ webpage below. A special Countryfile Ramble for BBC Children in Need programme will be shown on Sunday 29th October at 6:00pm on BBC1.

  3. Or you can pay in at any bank, but please do send us your sponsorship form with the bank stamp on it so we know you’ve rambled! And do fill in your details so we can send you a certificate.

Put on your own sponsored ramble

We want as many of you as possible to put on your own sponsored rambles.

Last year thousands of you took part, had a great day out in our glorious countryside – and most importantly, together helped us raise more than £1.5 million to help disadvantaged children across the country.

Every step you take will help change lives for the better.

Countryside Code

Please respect the countryside you ramble through.

Always close gates behind you, take your litter home with you and follow recognised paths, or seek the landowner’s permission first.

The presenter-led rambles

Applications to join the presenter led rambles have now closed. But please take part by putting on your own sponsored ramble.
