Events

Taking part in a fundraising event

Are you a keen golfer, an avid walker, long distance runner or sky diving thrill seeker?  There is a huge variety of events you can take part in to raise money for us but mostly importantly to have fun or challenge yourself!

 

Our friends at Millennium Consulting organise an annual golf day in honour of us which you’re very welcome to join (details of the next one in our news section here). We usually organise a challenge event in Kenya every other year, with the opportunity to visit our programmes and see the difference your support makes.

 

Alternatively you can secure a place in any of the national challenge events such as the Thames Path Challenge, Three Peaks Challenge, marathons and half marathons or even a sky dive or abseil if you’re feeling brave! There’s so many events to choose from that there will be something for everyone.

 

We can provide you with a t-shirt or vest and support you with fundraising, as well as virtually cheering you on!

Mount Kenya Trip 2022

We realise COVID-19 has meant a total change in the way we travel and keep safe. We’re hopeful that by 2022 we will be able to organise another group trip to Kenya to take on the mighty Mount Kenya  – the second-highest mountain in Kenya after Kilimanjaro (but less busy!). After tackling Mount Kenya you’ll be able to visit the communities we work alongside and meet the young people your fundraising will be supporting.

We’re keen to gauge interest and will start planning later in the year once we have a clearer idea of how things may be for travel in 2022. Do get in touch if you’re interested and we’ll keep you in the loop!

Organising your own fundraising event

Calling all bakers, quizmasters, crafters, singers and coffee drinkers!

 

Could you host your own small fundraising event? How about a coffee morning with friends and family with a suggested donation to attend (in person or via video call)? Maybe hosting a virtual quiz for far-flung friends? Don your chef’s outfit and create your own Come Dine With Me or Masterchef evening for friends. Perhaps you’ve got the baking bug during lockdown and don’t know what to do with all the banana bread – how about selling it to neighbours and loved ones? Over the years we’ve seen some amazing ideas which people have come up with to raise money for us – including offering tank rides!

We’d love to hear your ideas and how we can best support you to make your event a success!
