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 support to everyone fundraising including sponsorship forms.

Action Challenge Events

Walk, jog or run along a spectacular coastline; through beautiful English countryside with rolling green hills; or following an iconic river and raise money for Village Africa.


Ben Nevis Climb

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!



Climb Mount Kilimanjaro

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?

Runs, cycles and walks

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 a coffee morning, tea party or bake sale!

Host your very own coffee morning, tea party or bake sale.  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!


Don’t forget to share with us what you are planning and post on Facebook… and get your VA T-shirt to wear on the event!
