fundraise for Act4Africa

If you want to get involved beyond donating, you can either organise your own fundraising event or take part in a pre-organised event: either way, we will support and encourage you towards your goal!
We have been supported over the years by many people doing many different and exciting things for us. From sky-diving to shaving their heads, our supporters have achieved personal ambitions and undertaken considerable challenges to help us in our work. 
If you want to join them, then please download our Fundraising Booklet to find out more.
