Make a big difference by volunteering

HOPE International Development Agency UK is always keen for volunteers to assist with raising valuable funds that will make a difference abroad. Whether it is through sponsored events, hosting a gig or concert, or holding a coffee morning to raise money and awareness of our work, the funds will be directed to our current project in Ethiopia. The funds will go a long way to bringing hope to a community in need of clean water. 

Every year there are numerous events run to help people raise money for good causes.  Could you undertake a sporty challenge to help HOPE raise more funds this year?  Perhaps it would help you get fit and would also raise awareness and money for our next water project in Ethiopia.  For example, what about a Tandem Skydive where you choose the date?  Learn More

For example, in June 2016, Marcus Nicholls completed the very impressive ‘Everesting’ challenge to raise money for HOPE. This feat involved cycling 8,848m (29,000 ft) uphill, the equivalent of climbing the height of Everest, and in Marcus’ case this meant climbing Windmill Hill in Bramham, West Yorkshire 292 times. This challenge took Marcus 22 hours and 44 minutes to complete! When asked “Why?”, the simple answer he gave was “Why not?”. Marcus is always up for a challenge, the more difficult, the better! Marcus' sponsors donated to HOPE's next water project and the publicity raised awareness of HOPE's work in Ethiopia.
