Putting the 'fun' in fundraising

13th Jun 2017

This weekend, some wonderful people gave up their time to raise vital funds for the work of Urban Saints.

Read about what they got up to... maybe you and some friends could do some essential fundraising to invest in the lives of children and young people around the UK yourselves?!

The Colour Run

Emillie Wright, a former intern on the Kestin House team, took part in the annual Colour Run event in London. This joyous 5-kilometre race involves having a huge amount of brightly-coloured paint powder and foam being hurled at you as you complete the course. But it was worth it for Emillie for the chance to do something to make a difference for young people just like her...

"Urban Saints has done so much for me over the years so it's about time I give something back!! Thank you US!"

You can find out how much Emillie raised for Urban Saints with her colourful efforts - or even sponsor her - on her Just Giving page:

Six Peaks Challenge

The Urban Saints Ireland Committee embarked on a marathon challenge to raise much needed funds for the work here in Ireland. Nine members of Urban Saints Ireland staff and volunteers climbed each of the highest peaks in the six counties of Northern Ireland... all in 24hours. All money raised goes to the work of Urban Saints Ireland, reaching young people for Christ and transforming lives.

"What an absolute privilege to spend that last 24 hours with this lot climbing peaks. Always inspired by their commitment to see the children and the young people of this island encounter Jesus in a life changing way." - Wilson Beare, Irish Director

You can find out more about the challenge and how the team got on scaling the peaks on their Just Giving page:
