Some of our challenges are operated exclusively in aid of one particular charity, but where you see the words “in aid of any charity”, you can raise funds for any cause that you feel passionate about, as long as they are a UK or Irish registered charity, and they authorise you to fundraise in their name.

We will help to get the authorisation for you to fundraise, so choose from one of the many charities on our database, or if you don’t find them listed, you can give us some contact details when you book and we’ll get in touch with them about becoming a charity partner.

Please type in the name (or part of the name) of the charity below in the ‘search term’ field below. If the name is a direct match, it will appear at the top of the results list. i.e. if you type Cancer, Cancer UK will appear towards the top of the results, British Cancer UK will appear lower down, and The UK Foundation of Lung Cancer Charities will appear even further down. So please try the exact match for the first few words to make it easier to find your charity. If you type a search term that is not in the name of the charity, but is in the description about the charity, it will appear after all of the above named results.

From before they are born until they are into their twenties, we help disadvantaged children across the UK. We do it through practical services and programmes that are proven to work. We help children through fostering or adoption. We intervene early to stop neglect and abuse. We make life better for disabled children. We influence policy and advocate for change. Nearly 7,000 staff and volunteers run over 600 services, from family centres to intensive support services, youth work to residential care homes. Together, we make a difference to the lives of 390,000 children, young people and families every year. From our origins running children’s homes, we have spent over a century working on the front line, developing services that set a lead for others to follow. We work in partnership with other charities, local authorities and health services, and are supported by a broad range of donors, campaigners, experts and specialists. Our work depends on public support. We earn it by showing how every single thing we do makes a difference. Wherever we work all do what’s right, do what’s needed and do what works for children in the UK.

Who is Adara? The Adara Group has two quite different parts, but one united purpose – to support people in poverty. The first part is an international development organisation, made up of non-profit companies and trusts in six countries, called Adara Development. The second part is two Australia-based corporate advisory businesses, Adara Advisors and Adara Partners. The Adara businesses are “for purpose” rather than for profit. Their sole objective is to fund Adara Development’s administration and emergency project costs. This allows 100% of all other donations received by Adara Development to go directly to project-related costs. Adara is focused on improving health and education for women, children and communities living in poverty. We are experts in maternal, neonatal and child health; and remote community development. We reach tens of thousands of people living in poverty each year. Our work has two pillars – best practice service, and knowledge sharing. The purpose of the Adara Group is to: 1. Work side by side with women, children and communities living in poverty to improve their lives 2. Change the way people think about the role of business in the world and the power of business/non-profit partnerships.

We work in the challenging but extraordinary landscape of northern Tanzania, from Kilimanjaro to the Kenyan border. Here, ancestral lands are grabbed for luxury wildlife tourism and private game hunting. Here, human rights are routinely violated. Maasai society is one of the most patriarchal societies on earth. In Maasai culture, negative traditional attitudes towards women and girls are inherent and widespread. If you’re a girl born into a traditional Maasai family, you will endure extreme gender inequality at every stage of life. You will undergo female genital mutilation. You will be denied the right to go to school. The right to choose when and whom to marry. The right to use contraception and access healthcare. The right to earn an income and inherit property or land. The right to have a say in decision-making. You will be one of the poorest, most vulnerable and disenfranchised people on earth. Our key areas of focus are women’s economic empowerment; girls’ education; land rights and HIV/AIDS and sexual and reproductive health. We concentrate our efforts on those pastoralists who endure the most dire inequalities; hard-to-reach individuals who are excluded and stigmatised not only by the State but by their own communities. Our work is empowering women and reducing gender inequality in Tanzania.
