Throughout June and July, we’re asking you to join #TeamPeacePartners as we fundraise for Centrepoint and support young homeless people. The concept is simple – commit to taking on a challenge in the months of June and July, and raise money to support young people on their journey.
If you would like to support but are not able to participate, make a donation towards #TeamPeacePartners fundraising efforts. Just £12 a month will enable Centrepoint to provide a room for a homeless young person.
Looking for inspiration
We ask you to try to complete your challenge during the month of June or July and submit all of your monies by the end of August. We’ll be awarding prizes for the most innovative challenges and to the fundraiser who gets the most sponsorship!
Frequently asked questions
I’m not at all sporty! Can I take part?
100%! You might decide to commit to writing the first chapter of your novel, taking time to meditate each day or to do a random act of kindness every day – it doesn’t have to be a sporting challenge. But perhaps part of the challenge is to take on something out of your comfort zone. It may not be running a marathon but challenging yourself to something active could bring you a real sense of achievement!
Can my friends take part too?
We’d love as many people as possible to join us in the challenge, regardless of age or background. So why not get your friends and family involved to create a mini team…or a mini competition!
Can I promote it on social media?
Absolutely and we’d love to share your stories! Tag us and use #TeamPeacePartners on social media!
How will my money make a difference?
Centrepoint provides support to homeless young people. Just £144 could enable Centrepoint to fund a room for a homeless young person for a whole year. More than a roof over a young person’s head - it is a safe haven where they can gain access to education, counselling, apprenticeships and functional skills until they are ready to move on. Throughout 2021, Peace Partners is delighted to be supporting Centrepoint through fundraising campaigns and activities.
How do I pay in my money?
We encourage you to avoid handling cash, particularly during COVID-19, and ask people to donate directly at: https://www.totalgiving.co.uk/appeal/centrepoint.
Ask them to reference your name in their message to help us work out how much you have raised or create your own fundraising page at the same link.
