Fundraising for Young Roots

“When I’m teaching the other refugees it makes me so happy and proud. I’m thankful for every Thursday. It changes our mood and frees our mind to be with friends. Thank you Young Roots, you changed my life” Zakaria, Young Roots Member

Get Your School Involved

Download our Youth Fundraising Pack

Fundraising for Young Roots is about more than the money raised – the experience helps students to understand the experiences of young refugees living in London. We can visit your school to talk about our work, and support your fundraising activities. We welcome First Give Fundraisers.

If you’re organising an event, we’d love to help however we can – do get in touch! We hope to be able to attend, but if our stars (and our schedules..!) don’t align, we may be able to visit your workplace or community group to tell you how your support makes a difference.

Take Part in a Sponsored Event

Sponsored events are great motivation for reaching your goal, provide a fun day out with friends – and of course, change the lives of our young members! If you need some inspiration, this list details some sporting events happening in and around London in 2017.
