We believe in giving back to our communities and making a positive impact in the world. That's why throughout June, different teams across all our cities will be taking on the challenge of walking 40km in a day to raise money for 5 incredible charities. This is an annual event, and since 2021, we’ve raised over £30k for charities across the globe.
Join us in making a difference! Support our chosen charities and help transform lives. Every contribution, big or small, brings us closer to creating a better world.

Donations play a critical role in enabling Papyrus to expand their reach and provide even more young people with the support they desperately need.

As a renowned global organisation, UNICEF strives to protect and improve the lives of children worldwide. Their initiatives cover a wide range of areas, including health, nutrition, education, and child protection.
The project we are supporting is “Acute Malnutrition threatens children”. The food situation in many African countries is severe and demands our attention. Factors like land degradation, droughts, poverty, and limited access to food and essential services contribute to severe malnutrition. Timely treatment can save lives and secure children's futures. UNICEF and partners tirelessly work to expand response through integrated programmes in health, education, protection, and water sectors.
By supporting UNICEF, we can contribute to providing lifesaving aid, emergency relief, and long-term support to vulnerable children in need. Together, we can make a difference in ensuring every child's right to a safe, healthy, and fulfilling future.
