The Royal Parks Half Marathon

2016 Route Map – Royal Parks Half

This year we are delighted to offer 10 places in the beautiful Royal Parks Half Marathon on Sunday 8th October 2017.

16,000 runners attend this 13.1 mile event which send runners across 4 beautiful London parks and past some iconic some landmarks including Buckinghams Palace and The Royal Albert Hall.

This event raises money and awareness of the London parks. Run for us also helps us free some of our world’s children through education.

Sixth formers at PUC

Rehemath, Pooja, Shwetha and Monish in the flat at the school – Summer 2016

Thanks to scholarships and bursaries from Acts of Hope UK these lucky teenagers are able to attend PUC. This enables them to continue their education past GCSE level. These hard-working students hope to go to university and on to work placements. They need our support financially and emotionally through higher education. None of their family members have experienced the academic life before so they need mentors. As you can see they are very happy to be there!

Rafiki Golf Society

Rajesh Rathod (Captain of the Rafiki Golf Society)  – supports the Acts of Hope Charitable Trust. We would like to welcome Rajesh and his team at the Rafiki Golf Society to our network of supporters.

The Rafiki Golf Society was formed in 2010 as a way of regularly meeting to play golf, it has gone from strength to strength and is recognised by established societies and premier golf courses in the South East of England. They hold competitions on a monthly basis from March to October, in addition they participate in annual competitions against other societies and plan regular trips both home and abroad.

We would like to thank the society for its very generous donation.

Child Sponsorship, Relevant and Worthwhile

We are all aware of the current pressure on personal and family budgets. At times such as this it is even more important to be clear how donations are used and the impact they are having.

The Acts of Hope Child Sponsorship scheme does exactly this. We are of to a good start this year promoting the program through our networks and making presentations at schools, churches, rotaries, groups etc. This builds the “channel” with AoH donors and the children in a very real way. The Bengaluru children know real people are interested in helping them and the donors know they are being effective.

Peter Willetts presented an overview of life for our children in Bangalore to Maltman’s Green School this month. The staff believe having contact with the charity helps their girls improve their Geography, learn about different cultures and see how other children live. The girls asked some very astute and thought provoking questions in the Q&A sessions and we are very grateful for their support.
