YOUR STEPS ADDED UP TO SOMETHING LIFE-CHANGING!
Launching on 1st January, we set out to cover 24,901 miles to raise money for War Child UK, and thanks to your steps, walks, runs, and sporting challenges, we have done just that. The Peace Band community came together and raised over £120,000 which has been matched pound for pound by the UK Government.
This incredible amount of money raised equates to us being able to provide nutritious meals to over 100,000 children in one of our War Child centres or support 3,354 families with cash assistance to cover their basic needs for a month.
The challenge may be over, but you can still collect those last-minute donations through your fundraising page. Donations received until the 18 Feb will be matched by the UK Government meaning the money you raise will go twice as far.
We’d love to let you know about other War Child fundraising events & challenges like Peace Band. Sign up and we’ll make sure you’re the first to hear about what we’re up to.
