Fundraising and Sponsorship

Are you the type of person who runs a marathon or does a triathlon just for fun before breakfast or do you fancy doing something extraordinary to raise money for Makomborero? If yes, we would love to hear from you today. Over the years we have had some wonderful people do some amazing things to boost our profile and raise money.

Inspired by Peter, one of our students who used to walk 15 miles a day each way to school, Stuart and some of his year 12 and 13 students at Sheffield High School walk 6 miles to school, through woodland, open countryside and parks on the outskirts of Sheffield, before completing a normal school day. They have run this fundraising event for several years and manage to raise a significant amount of money for Makomborero.

A team from Acturis Ltd, as well as a few Makomborero Trustees and supporters have, over the years, taken part in the Asics British 10K London Run. If you are running in this, the London Marathon or taking part in any other running challenges, please consider collecting sponsorship in aid of Makomborero.

We also continue to fundraise as a trust in Zimbabwe, asking local businesses to sponsor students.

What could you do for Makomborero?

  • Run a 10K, a half-marathon or even a full marathon?
  • Organise an online pub quiz?
  • Compete in a triathlon or how about an Iron Man?
  • Take the plunge with open water swimming?
  • There is no limit to what you could do!
