Come and join Theirworld’s amazing family of fundraisers

Theirworld’s mission to end the education crisis is on a global scale. But we couldn’t do our work without the amazing individual efforts of thousands of fundraisers. 

We’ve created a new film to pay tribute to them and encourage others to help us deliver quality learning to marginalised and under-served children. 

Our fundraisers have walked, run, cycled and baked cakes to help the cause. They’ve sung in the street and at a star-studded carol concert. You can take part too – watch our new film below and then find out how to fundraise for Theirworld. 

Jess Mortlock, Theirworld’s Head of Fundraising and Events, said: “We’ve got some fantastic supporters who choose to keep fundraising for Theirworld. Some of them have been raising much-needed funds for over 10 years.  

“We’re hugely grateful to them for their support and really appreciate all that they continue to do for us. We can’t wait to grow that supporter base even more.” 

How you can fundraise for Theirworld 

Raising money for Theirworld is a great way to help us ensure that every child around the world has the best start in life, a safe place to learn and skills for the future.  

We have our annual Theirworld, Your Walk – launched last year as our first mass-participation event. The challenge was to walk 26 miles for the 260 million children out of school throughout June, as we celebrated our 20th anniversary. 

You can get involved in any way you want – from quiz nights and knitting to head shaving and skydiving. We’ve got advice on how to do your own fundraising and an A-Z of creative ideas. Whatever you do, make sure you have fun doing it!

2023 starts with a bang 

A big moment for Theirworld as we were chosen by the BBC for its Radio 4 Appeal on New Year’s Day, read by the actor David Tennant. Listen to the appeal. 

We will have supporters taking part in runs this year around the UK, including the Edinburgh Marathon Festival, Great North Run, Scottish Kilomathon and Supernova London. 

We’re also gearing up for the second year of Theirworld, Your Walk. We’ll be sharing more information soon on how you can get involved with your friends, families and colleagues to fundraise during June. 

“As a charity that doesn’t receive financial support from government, we rely on fundraisers from all walks of life and all corners of society,” said Jess Mortlock. “Money donated due to every step walked, every cupcake sold or every quiz question answered will make a huge difference in helping to fund our work.”
