Run For Their Lives this October
Our #TeamOrange volunteers are once again stepping up to help those in need. In fact, they’ll be taking several thousand steps!
This October they will be embarking on a special Run For Their Lives challenge to raise money for Syrian refugees.
Fundraisers will be lacing up their running shoes to take part in one of two runs – a 10k in Bradford or a half marathon in Luton.
Pounding the streets is not just for professional athletes – even those with little running experience can get involved – but places are limited so sign up now!
The money raised will be used to provide those fleeing their homes with essentials such as food, shelter and medical supplies, and by raising £100 in sponsorship every runner will make a big difference.

YOUR donations handed out to refugees
Our special aid convoy, in partnership with Amir Khan Foundation, reached Greece at the weekend, where teams handed out thousands of items direct to refugees.
World champion boxer Amir Khan helped deliver the aid, which included food and water, clothes, hygiene essentials and sleeping bags, to those stepping off boats on the island of Lesbos. Our teams also distributed your donations to refugees in Athens who are already making their journeys through Europe by foot.
Amir said: “The donated items for the aid convoy made a massively positive difference to refugees and we were so happy to have helped the people we could, but deeply saddened by the number of refugees we couldn't help.”
Penny Appeal still has teams on the ground in Greece, so please donate now to provide essential items to refugees who have left everything behind to escape conflict.
You can give to provide food and water, hygiene products, shelter and hot meals by calling 03000 11 11 11.

The sheepest Qurbani available!
Guzzy Bear was going to do his own Qurbani this year, then he found out that Qurbani is only £29 with Penny Appeal.
Just watch the look on his face as he realises!
Give your Qurbani with Penny Appeal and the fresh meat will be delivered direct to orphans, widows and the elderly, so they can enjoy a nutritious meal to celebrate Eid al-Adha.
Qurbani with Penny Appeal – it’s affordable and rewardable!
Give your Qurbani now by calling 03000 11 11 11.

Water, water everywhere...
But for 2.3 billion people there’s not a drop to drink.
That’s why we’re building wells in 13 developing countries worldwide, giving people reliable access to clean water.
This water means they can wash, cook and clean without worrying about killer diseases such as diarrhoea. It means they can care for their crops and animals, giving them a chance to build a sustainable livelihood. And it means they live stronger, healthier and happier lives, with a real opportunity to get out of poverty.
This World Water Week (23 to 28 August), you can build a well to give life-saving clean water for years to come.
It costs from £300 to build a well through Thirst Relief – that’s just 82p a day, around the same price as a bottle of mineral water!
Start building your well now by calling 03000 11 11 11. You can even dedicate it in your name or that of a loved one.

They dared to dive, to save lives!
Over 80 of our daring #TeamOrange volunteers took on a mammoth challenge at the weekend – to jump out of a plane at 13,000ft!
The skydivers showed bravery, dedication to helping others and enthusiasm, with a whopping £40,000 raised to build a new medical room in Gaza.
“It was an incredible weekend in so many ways; for the number of people who took part over the two skydive days, the money we raised and the lives we will go on to save as a result,” said Khalil Benkhalil, Fundraising & Challenges Coordinator.
If you’re an adrenaline seeker who wants to raise money to save lives then join #TeamOrange now and we’ll keep you updated on our next challenges. You could also volunteer at our upcoming events or host your own fundraisers in your community.
