We are so grateful for all our Fundraising Champions...could you be a champion too?
Jess Titchener who spent much of 2009
at Lifespring Farm in Zambia as a long term volunteer helping to co-ordinate the projects and supporting our short term volunteers has consistantly been a real Lifespring fundraising champion. She ran the Edinburgh Half Marathon on 18/04/10 to raise funds for LSFA alongside other wonderful volunteers from Summer 2009, Sophie Arnold & her father Chris & Tristan Hartley.
Jess is now set to return to Zambia in August 2011 followed by a sponsored climb of Kilamanjaro. In the meantime she organised a "Speed dating" event in central London to raise funds.
Many thanks to Amy Clarke & her friends from Lavant House School who raised funds through a number of innovative events during 2010 including a "Big Breakfast" club morning & a mufti-day with an African Theme. During 2011 Amy, now at uni, raised funds through other sponsored events.
We are grateful to Alexandra Ratcliffe who organised a Charity Auction at Chichester High School 6th Form on May 5th 2010 to raise much needed funds for LSFA.
Rachel Alloway a teacher from UK who spent several months in Zambia working as a short term volunteer & is now back at home with her friends, colleagues and pupils at Grayshott CE Primary School raising funds to support our school for orphaned children. In Feb 2011 they held a concert to raise funds to purchase instruments for the children in Kaloko. The box of instruments is now being shipped and should be there later this year.
We now have a fabulous trampoline at our new school thanks to the Christie family. Both Laura & Emily have visited Lifespring as volunteers (2009 & 2010) really making an impact on the lives of so many children.
Real fundraising champion Hudson Greig & the Year 7 children at George Abbot School in Guidlford raised a fantastic £549.69 during their 2010 Charity Week. In July 2011 (on his 13th birthday) Hudson has completed the 3 Peaks Challenge raising in excess of £500. Amazing!!
Many thanks to the children of Littlegreen School in Compton, West Sussex who have managed to raise £30 for our school in Kaloko.
In Spring & Summer 2010 & 2011 we welcomed volunteers from Oasis Trust to Lifespring. On their return to the UK the team have been amazing in raising awareness & encouraging friends & family to sponsor a child.
We are ever grateful to the kindness and generosity of Dr Ann Wickenden who through her regular talks and fundraising events with friends and groups in Worthing, West Sussex has been a real Lifespring champion.
Many thanks are owed to Westbourne House School in Chichester, West Sussex who for many years now have collected and donated school uniforms enabling us to supply our school for orphans in Kaloko. A wonderful way to recycle these good quality clothes & bring a smile to the faces of our school children.
