CEO of Legacy Youth Zone – Barnabas Shelbourne is taking part in not one, not two, but 12 Challenges to fundraise for all the young people in Croydon who take part in the services we offer.

Watch his video below to see why he’s doing it


Barnabas hopes to raise £12,000 (£1000 per month) from 01 September 2021 – 31 August 2022. If he’s able to surpass this and reach more than double the donations £25,000 – then he has promised to get a tattoo saying ‘Legacy’! Crazy right – but it was his own suggestion, and secretly we think he just wants any excuse to get a tattoo!



Below you’ll see a list of the 12 challenges Barnabas will be taking part in – some may be hidden as they will be revealed to him closer to the time (we don’t want to give him the opportunity to chicken out!)

If you’d like to support and take part in any activities too, then you can register your interest and a member of the fundraising team will be in touch with you!

Barnabas will be wearing something green every day in September to celebrate our 2nd birthday (officially on 7th September).

You can take part too we’re asking all of our supporters to wear green for just 1 day in the month of September – check out some of our ideas!

Green Day

Taking on 13.1 miles around some of London’s iconic Royal Parks – Barnabas will be running through Hyde Park, Kensington Gardens, Green Park and St. James’ Park.

If you’d like to join him and be part of our Legacy Legend family, then find out more below.

Royal Parks Half

We’ve got a fun, exciting and a little bit disgusting challenge for Barnabas and our Head of Youth Work Myke to take part in on Saturday 20th November. We’ll be revealing it closer to the time (just so they don’t chicken out and not take part)!

Coming Soon

Ho Ho Ho! It’s Christmas, and that can only mean one thing – London Santa Run!

Members can join Barnabas on a 5k or 10k course too! You will need a consent form from your parents/carers (why not get them to take part too!).

If you’d like to find more information register your interest below.

Coming Soon

Okay – we may have over done it on the minced pies and candy canes – it’s time to kickstart 2022 with a bang and get active!

Join in with Barnabas in this years’ Leg It For Legacy, and complete 10,000 steps throughout the month of January. Members – we’ll have lots of activities at Legacy to get involved in, and for those at work – why not encourage your colleagues to do the same whilst raising money!

Don’t you long for a week where you can just be in your comfiest pj’s 24/7!

We’re challenging Barnabas to wear his pj’s for an entire week to work – that includes his very important meetings! Happening during half term, so members can get involved too! And as for those who work from home, or if you’re brave and want to do it in the office – then we’d love you to take part also!

Register Interest

We’ll be listing the remaining six challenges in due course – but there will be lots to get involved in, including Skydiving, Abseiling and Cycling!
