Concern 24-hour FAST

Join hundreds of people across the UK and take on the 24-hour FAST challenge.

Can you give up up something for 24 hours?

Give up food, or something you love, for 24 hours and raise the vital funds we need to tackle hunger in the world’s poorest places.

Together we can make a lifetime of difference in just one day.

Are you up for the FAST challenge?

Who can take part in the Concern FAST?

You can take part in the Concern FAST yourself, with your school or in the workplace.

How much do I need to raise?

There’s no target, but our fundraising team are on hand to help you raise as much as you can. We can post you a fundraising pack containing sponsor forms and fundraising materials, and guide you through setting up a JustGiving page.

What can I FAST from?

Traditionally the FAST is 24 hours without food but if you fancy another challenge we are encouraging people to FAST from media and take our ‘Digital Detox’

What is the Digital Detox FAST?

Do you spend hours scrolling through Facebook, posting on Instagram or playing Fortnite? Then why not challenge yourself to take our 24-hour Digital Detox FAST, and go without? If addicted to Twitter, then challenge yourself to go without your tweets for 24 hours? If addicted to your Xbox, can you set the controller down for 24 hours?

Contact our team online or call 0800 032 4001 for more information.


FAST responsibly


If you are FASTing from food then get permission from a parent or guardian, and a teacher in school.

If you have a medical condition, please choose another FAST challenge.
