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’.
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.
Our generous donors
Thank you to all of our high-flyers!
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!
At 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 own staff have jumped on board, taking part in the Southampton 10k in April 2017 (raising over £1,000 in the process!) and the Poole Festival of Running in June 2016. 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!
