Run for charity

This year’s charity partners

This year we have selected 2 worthy charity partners to be the main beneficiaries of the Fun Run:

  • Solihull Life Opportunities (SoLO)
  • The UK Sepsis Trust

We shall retain half of all the proceeds for other local and Lions causes. If you know of such a worthy cause, please get in touch.

Got your own favorite cause?

We encourage all runners to raise money for our charity partners, however, if you prefer you may raise sponsorship for charities other than those 

It is important you:

  • Use the Knowle Fun Run sponsorship form, suitably amended
  • Pay your sponsorship into the Fun Run bank account
  • Send us your paying in slip and sponsorship form together with contact details for the charity
  • And we will do the rest – claim Gift Aid on your behalf and forward the total raised giving your details to the charity

You may be assured that every pound will be forwarded to the charity you nominate, with nothing retained for local causes

Charity Fundraisers

We welcome participants raising funds for your charity. Charity fundraisers please feel free to promote our events to your supporters. Please let us know if you do, so we can work together to maximise your take

Charity partners for 2018-2019

Each year through our events we fund raise, this year for just 2 charity partners, whilst retaining half of all funds raised for a host of smaller local and Lions causes to which we donate during the year. 

Solihull Life Opportunities – SoLO

“Embracing Disability, Empowering Lives” SoLO Life Opportunities is a local charity adding value to the lives of over 1000 children and adults with learning disabilities, their parents and carers.  SoLO provides high quality leisure and social opportunities, community based Day Time Activities, a Personal Assistants Service and Supported Living.

Provision ranges from specialist services for those with more profound disabilities and challenging behaviour to more general services for those with moderate to severe learning disabilities.  SoLO enables all to experience social activities, reducing isolation, building skills, making friends and improving lives.

The UK Sepsis Trust

Every 3.5 seconds, someone in the world dies of sepsis. In the UK alone, 44,000 people lose their lives to sepsis every year. This is more than breast, bowel and prostate cancer combined. Globally, sepsis claims 6 million lives a year. Yet with early diagnosis it is easily treatable.

The UK Sepsis Trust exists to fight this life-threatening condition, stop preventable deaths and support those affected by sepsis. Find out more.

Lions Causes

At the same time we shall retain 50% of the net proceeds for Lions locally determined causes.

If you know of a local cause you believe worthy of our fundraising no matter what size or location please get in touch
