FUNDRAISING HALL OF FAME
Our supporters have done some pretty impressive things to raise money and awareness for WasteAid UK…
Frith Resource Management trek for trash
Two members of the FRM team completed the Bridgnorth Walk a 22-mile trek which includes walking up and down Brown Clee hill (the highest hill in Shropshire (1170ft)). They completed the walk in just over 5 hours and raised just under £200 in sponsorship through JustGiving. They thoroughly enjoyed the challenge, the weather conditions were perfect and not too many blisters either!
CDEnviro’s WasteAid Week 2016
CDEnviro sponsored a week full of different fundraising events in support of WasteAid Week 2016! Ranging from a Tacky Tie contest, to Guess the Number of Sweets, to a clothing drive and multiple litter-picks throughout the community, the week flew by as CDEnviro featured various activities to raise both awareness and money for WasteAid UK. Finishing up the week with a 5K run, CDEnviro was excited to receive support throughout the company in order to finish the week of fundraising on such a high note with incredible participation and engagement.
In just one week, our fundraising heroes at CDEnviro raised over £1,400! Huge thanks to everyone involved.
Chartered Institution of Wastes Management Gala Dinner 2016
In September 2016 the UK waste management sector came together for the RWM exhibition and glittering CIWM Gala Dinner. Thanks to the generosity of individuals who appreciate the importance of waste management around the world (and some superb auctioning by the BBC’s Garry Richardson) we raised over £7,000! A huge thanks to CIWM and everyone who attended the event.
The Great Re-Cycle raises over £1,000 for WasteAid UK
Having covered a 70 mile route covered the entire length of the Basingstoke Canal, along the River Wey and finally the River Thames, our team of cyclists completed their sponsored bike ride at London Waterloo Station, raising a whopping £1,000 in sponsorship through JustGiving.
Congratulations to everyone who participated and thanks for supporting WasteAid UK, let’s hope you inspire others too, because #wastematters!
Walk for Waste is a Fundraising Success
WasteAid UK’s first major fundraising event saw twenty five people climb to the top of Mount Snowdon to help tackle the global waste crisis. Our sponsorship page is looking incredible and we’d like to congratulate the Walk for Waste team for their amazing support.
This was the first major fundraising event for WasteAid UK and we have been thrilled at the enthusiasm shown by everyone involved. It’s not easy climbing a mountain, and the view from the top looks, well, a little grey – but your efforts were well worthwhile!
Sponsored Sky Dive
Carolyn Couch, Waste and Recycling Manager at the University of Southampton, has leapt from a plane to raise money for WasteAid UK. There’s still time to sponsor Carolyn for this brave feat please, so please visit our JustGiving page. Thanks Carolyn – what a star!
