Thank you to all our supporters and volunteers who make our work possible!
Meet our Star Supporters
For the past six weeks we have been sharing the stories of some of our Star Supporters, about why they got involved with Children Change Colombia and showing you the interesting and different ways people support us, such as; at events, with video development or even lending their skills as digital marketing masters!
We want to say a special THANK YOU to everyone who has featured in our Star Supporters Series! And here are just a few examples of how some of our talented and generous supporters have helped us.
Kaitlin and her fantastic fifth grade Spanish class in Michigan organised a fundraising project for CCC. They sold bracelets, posters and other arts and crafts, raising £470! Thank you for showing us that children everywhere are changing Colombia!
A big thank you to actor Tom Hollander for presenting our BBC Radio 4 Charity Appeal, and thank you to all of you who donated. It was a huge success, raising over £12,000!
Felipe Peñacoba & Sara Lievano Ramos
Felipe and Sara were two of our superstar fundraisers at the Thames Walk, getting a group of 21 people to join and securing £1,230 matched funding from Felipe’s employer, Finastra.
Thank you to everyone who supported our Thames Walk!
This year we had our biggest turnout ever with over 120 supporters, new and old, joining us in Richmond Park! We exceeded our fundraising target and raised over £11,000, which is fantastic and will have a big impact on our work this year and beyond.
We couldn’t have done it without some top volunteers and star fundraisers. So we want to say a big thank you to Gloria Grajales for providing delicious Colombian treats, Yvonne Velasquez for her brilliant networking and promotion, Lucinda Sturgis for being our top fundraiser, our Patron Fernando Montaño for joining us and leading the dancing at the picnic, and all our stewards for making the day such a success.
