Fundraising Events

A fantastic programme of events for African Adventures Foundation in early 2017 has led to a generous amount already being contributed to our partner projects.

There have been some fantastic results at our recent fundraising events, which you can read about here. Not only has there been a great deal of enjoyment had, but the funds raised at these events contribute greatly to The Foundation’s annual total, and allow us to address some of the pressing needs that our partner projects have, as covered on ‘Our Goals’.

An amazing evening spent with friends, family and colleagues, raising vital funds for our partner projects in Africa.

Our third African Adventures Foundation fundraising dinner took place on 6th May 2017 at the luxurious Mike Channon suite at St. Mary’s Stadium, Southampton, and was a great success once again.

The evening was 1920’s themed, making for some amazing outfits and a lot of glam! There was amazing food, a luxury raffle and auction, an African craft market and fantastic 1920’s-themed live music, which got everyone up on the dance floor!

The generosity of our supporters was, as ever, humbling – the raffle and auction both raised an impressive amount which has contributed greatly to the final total. Dan Mew, Director of African Adventures, took the opportunity on the night to tell everyone about the importance of the money raised at such events, and the project developments that this money allows. A large part of the money raised at this year’s event will pay for a classroom at the new Walk Centre Primary School, an extremely worthy cause which will impact the lives of future generations of Kenyans.

With almost £29,000 raised over the past three years, a great deal has been possible thanks to the success of these fundraising dinners.

In February 2018, a team of charity challengers will hike to the top of Africa’s second-tallest mountain, Mount Kenya.

This is African Adventures Foundation’s second Mount Kenya charity challenge which will see 100% of all funds raised from our challengers fund the development of our partner projects in Ghana, Kenya and Zanzibar. To date, this incredible fundraiser has raised an amazing £10,500!

Often overlooked in favour of Kilimanjaro in Tanzania, Mount Kenya is Africa’s second-tallest mountain. Kenya itself is named after the mountain (not the other way round) and for years now, endurance hikers and mountaineers have been heeding the mountain’s call and heading for its summit.

Follow the progress of our amazing team of hikers when they embark on their adventure in February.

Charity Skydive

Thank you to all of our high fliers!

An amazing group of our supporters have taken the plunge (literally!) for African Adventures Foundation in 2016 and 2017, jumping out of a plane to raise vital funds in support of the charity. For many, this was not an easy feat and one which took a great deal of courage. But, the end justified the means and our incredible supporters came through, conquering their fears and raising thousands of pounds in the process. Thank you to you all!

Marathon Places

At a number of locations around the UK (and in Madrid!) a number of our supporters have taken to the streets, pounding the pavements to raise money for a brilliant cause.

Our supporters have donned their best running gear to cover the miles in pursuit of vital funds for African Adventures Foundation. Our very own team of staff jumped on board and took part in the Southampton 10k in April, raising over £1,000 in the process! We are always humbled by the lengths many of our supporters will go to for African Adventures Foundation and it was great to be a part of the action too!

“Every day in Kenya brought us a new challenge and made us more and more aware of the challenges faced everyday by the young people we met. Being in the schools, spending time with the children and teachers, and visiting families in their homes is not something I will ever forget and I came home wanting to be able to continue supporting them through the charity.”

“Finally got home after an amazing weekend at the African Adventures Charity Ball. Not laughed so much in ages. Such a great bunch of people, fabulous food and entertainment while raising money for a wonderful cause. In five weeks’ time we will be back out in Nakuru, really can’t wait.”

Debbie Patrick, Derby County Community Trust

“We are constantly humbled by how our supporters go over and above to raise money for African Adventures Foundation. Thank you so much to everyone that has raised money for the charity – it really does make a huge difference.”

Alex Maina, African Adventures Foundation Trustee
