Next Episode of Challenge Anneka is
Challenge Anneka will shine the light on everyday heroes and deserving communities at a time when they've never needed help more. Across the series the team will meet a wide range of inspirational people who will help Anneka move heaven and earth to achieve these challenges. True to form we'll see Anneka pulling up at secret locations to meet the individuals at the heart of the challenge and be briefed on the task at hand. With a mountain to climb, her trusty mobile, buggy, lorry and Dave the Soundman in tow - Anneka will be calling in big favours from big brands, big names and big groups of volunteers all keen to lend a hand. 30 years on from the original series the challenges of course will be new and reflect Britain in 2022, but at its heart the series will still be about incredible people who really want to make a difference to the world they live in.
Revival of the 1980s and '90s show in which Anneka Rice takes on tasks that must be completed in a set time She begins at a dog rescue centre at Foal Farm in Kent with the building of a new block of kennels, a grooming parlour and a play area, all in time for its 60th anniversary.
Debbie and Jo's food hub charity has outgrown its modest town centre location in Stockton-on-Tees, Co Durham, so Anneka sets out to transform a neighbourhood hall. Anneka's hallenge is to help supersize their operation by transforming a run-down and creaking neighbourhood hall and its surrounding land around the corner into a new hub with its own cafe, teaching kitchen, food bank and storage facility for their equipment for community activities.
Anneka's task includes building seven shops, a village green, beautiful landscaping and an onsite cafe for carers to sit in and relax. And if that isn't enough the team must also throw a party to celebrate its opening. All in just three days! The team hit the phones and it's not long before the build gets off to a flying start with trades pouring in from all over the country. But it's clear that lack of materials is fast becoming an issue, so Anneka is soon knocking on the doors of local firms to plead for drains and timber. Back on site, the monumental scale of the build means it's all hands to the pumps and Anneka needs to find 30 people to dig a trench in order to keep the challenge on track - making the most of her nearby surroundings, she interrupts a local rugby team in training and convinces the lads and ladies to come to her aid. Despite all of this, there is still the business of organising the grand opening party. Meanwhile, Anneka is out and about meeting some of the families who will benefit from the Dementia Village. Despite not being able to communicate easily with some of the elderly people with dementia she finds a way to find common ground by breaking into song. Her mother used to sing My Bonnie Lies Over the Ocean to her, and this song seems to strike a chord, literally, with everyone. Again, memory is the key to making lives of those with this distressing illness more bearable. Even the builders back on site join in! The construction of the village is falling seriously behind. Anneka needs 50 carpenters for the final day if they are to finish the project in time. But can she deliver? With a flurry of late night phone calls, and extraordinary acts of charity and selflessness, it's a race to the wire to see if one of Anneka's biggest ever challenges be finished in time…
