Fundraising events

Sponsored and fundraising events are a fantastic way for you to raise money to support your local community and can be great fun!

We often have places in organised fundraising events or challenges or we can support you to organise your own. Why not plan a quiz, bake-sale or tea party with your friends, or take on a fun personal challenge such as a marathon or sky-dive?

However you decide to support the Octavia Foundation, you can be sure that we will support you in every way that we can.

   Last year through organising and participating in the 10k Vitality run in May, The Thames Bridges Trek 25k walk in Sept and the Octavia 5 A Side tournament in October, I managed to challenge myself (achieving a new PB in the 10k), become healthier, make new friends and raise over a thousand pounds. They were all fantastic experiences which I would highly recommend to others within or out of the organisation, which most importantly as a result will contribute towards the fantastic work the Foundation does across all their projects.

Thames Bridges Trek

The Thames Bridges Trek sets off from Putney Bridge on Saturday 9th September between 11am and midday, walking 25k over the array of historic bridges to Tower Bridge. Snacks and drinks will be served at mid-point before a celebratory BBQ and glass of prosecco at the finish line in Southwark.

The Royal Parks Half is a stunning run on Sunday 8th October at 9:00am that guides you through four of London's Royal Parks - Hyde Park, The Green Park, St James's Park and Kensington Gardens. You'll also be able to take in the capital's most famous landmarks along the way! We have limited space so get in contact asap with Naomi Roper, our Head of Fundraising, to secure a place.
