We are a very small charity and truly value your support!
Our Trustees cover 100% of our low UK fundraising costs, and our local grassroots partners make heavy use of volunteers and gifts in kind so your donations can make the biggest difference possible to orphans and other vulnerable children and youths.
Other Online Donations
There are three easy ways you can donate to ZOA-UK’s work online:
Alternatively you can send a cheque payable to Zambia Orphans Aid UK to: ZOA-UK Treasurer, 2A Nine Chimneys Lane, Balsham, Cambridge CB21 4ES.
Become a Friend of ZOA-UK
Could you join our growing membership of Friends and commit to a monthly or annual donation? By setting up a regular gift you enable us to make longer-term commitments to the children we support.
The simplest way to do this is via the ‘Regular Donation’ tab on the CAF widget to the right. Alternatively please download our UK Membership Form.
Please remember to ask your employer if they will match your charitable donations.

Sponsored Events and Sporting Challenges
If you are planning an event or challenge please could you consider fundraising on our behalf?
Four weeks in the saddle, 2,500 km on a circuit of France, alone. There were times when the whimsical post-retirement concept (Taste the wines! Improve language skills! Admire scenery!) did not quite match reality in France’s worst summer for years. One wet and windy week in, the sponsorship I carried with me for ZOA was a huge help in maintaining motivation to keep going.
The weather (and my French) improved, the final week (Loire valley) had much the best cycling roads, and my generous sponsors coughed up willingly to the tune of over £5,000 plus gift aid back home. I still smile thinking of it.
Now, I have the grandchildren fundraising for ZOA as well. Christmas: an “entertainment” by them, with every adult relation charged £5 entry, attendance – of course – compulsory.
Other ZOA-UK supporters have raised funds by:
- Climbing mountains
- Throwing dinner parties
- Cycling from Land’s End to John o’ Groats
- Running 5Ks to marathons
- Auctioning art work
- Holding collections at concerts and plays.
It’s simple to set up a personalised fundraising page at www.justgiving.com/zoauk. This can be shared with family and friends and donations go directly to ZOA-UK.
