Community fundraising

Day in, day out, we’re helping orphans and vulnerable children in Zambia change their future. This couldn’t happen without the funds raised by our amazing supporters.

Our supporters have climbed mountains, held fashion swaps, thrown dinner parties, cycled from Land’s End to John o’Groats, run marathons, auctioned art work and held collections at concerts and plays. 

Get involved

Take part in an organised event, like a marathon or swim or plan your own fundraising activity for us. If you’re yet to decide how to get involved, we’ve got lots of ideas for you – from sponsored swims to office bakes and so much more.

We’d be delighted to support you and are full of ideas so do get in contact with Katy on 01223 890162 or katy@zoa.org.uk

Shimwaayi

Shimwaayi raised £1221 by climbing 108 steps everyday for 26 days

“Zambia Orphans Aid UK’s fundraising has been hit very hard by the COVID-19 pandemic. Around the world thousands of fundraising events have been cancelled and many charities, particularly smaller ones like ZOA-UK, will struggle to maintain services because of this reduction in income. That’s why I am took part in the 2.6 challenge, because every little helps and I was determined to do my bit. 

I walked up 108 steps a day for 26 days in order to raise money for ZOA-UK. This might not sound like a lot to anyone able bodied, but I have back issues so it was quite a challenge!”

Isla Mpande

Ran 2.6km in their garden during Coronavirus lockdown raising £316

“I ran 2.6km in my garden during lockdown with my Dad to raise money for Zambia Orphans Aid UK. I did this as I was sad about the children that had no carers or support so I wanted to help by raising money for them and helping them have a good future.”

Harvey Lineman

Cycled 2,500km in France raising over £5000!

“Four weeks in the saddle 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. 

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.”

Help Change a Child's Future

Your help can support children through primary and
secondary school, provide nutritious school meals so pupils
aren’t learning on an empty stomach and support those that can
through tertiary vocational training. We provide a holistic
approach so also provide mental health support and other inputs
where needed.

Thank you!

Your support makes a big difference.
