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.
