Here are just a few ideas of how you could fundraise for Village Africa. Please get in touch if you would like more information about any of the events below or have ideas you would like to share with us. We offer full support to everyone fundraising, with access to sponsorship forms and even training guides for Ben Nevis and Kilimanjaro!
Ben Nevis, the highest mountain in the UK stands 1,344 metres above sea level – the same height as Yamba in Tanzania! Follow in the footsteps of volunteer Jane and UK administrator Andrea and take on the challenge to reach the summit raising a mountain of cash for Village Africa!
Mount Kilimanjaro, the tallest mountain in Tanzania, stands 5,895 metres above sea level. If you are coming to visit Village Africa, how about taking on the heights of the world’s tallest freestanding mountain?
Have you ever been tempted to do a 5K, 10K, half marathon or a marathon? Perhaps a triathlon, getting on your bike and doing a long ride or walk? Plan your own or join a planned event near you. See the events calendar on Runner’s World for runs, Bike Events Online for cycling and The Ramblers for walks.
Host your very own coffee morning or tea party and hold a bake off with all your friends to support Village Africa! Charge an entry fee and hold a tombola, guess how much the cake weighs competition, and a prize for the best cake! Pick a theme and rate the best outfit, from mad hatters to kangas!
Give a short talk in your local school and talk about the work of Village Africa. All speakers will be fully supported with a letter to give to the school, a powerpoint presentation and FAQs. Offer your talk in exchange for a non school uniform day.
