Our fundraising event_Alice Holt Forest Sponsored Cycle or Stroll on Sunday May 20th 2018

Raising funds to support our work, Project Peru’s sponsored bike ride and stroll is for everyone including children and families. It follows the 'Family Cycle Trail' or a number of other trails that go through the Forestry Commission's Alice Holt Forest near Farnham, Surrey, GU10 4LS. http://www.forestry.gov.uk/aliceholt ; and you don't have to cycle and are free to go where you want while raising sponsorship for us just by participating

... you can walk it, walk the dogs, push the pram, jog it ... it really is for everyone! Or hire a bike if you want to?

This is an annual event. You go at your own pace. Enjoy an all-day picnic.

Project Peru activities for schools in the UK

Looking out for something different for 2018?

We have held many "Peru Days" in schools...or schools have 'adopted' us for a term or a year, or have linked Peru to a programme of activities in the national curriculum, or have just held a 'one-off' charity day in support of us. Such awareness raising sessions have been held in a variety of schools, and can be tailored to specific needs. Some geographical constraints will apply but, please, for more information, see http://projectperu.org.uk/uk-activities/schools.htm

Ask us about our sessions, particularly at primary level, including a workshop 'El Nuevo Mundo'

A fairer slice of the Christmas cake in 2015?

It’s amazing the difference a cake can make to the lives of children trapped in the circle of poverty. One cake raffled for us this Christmas means that one child from our refuge will be able to afford to go to the local state school for a year, paying for uniforms, school materials, books and much more, or that four of our older students will be able to attend further education courses for one month. And we have twenty of these cakes  being raffled around the UK this Christmas, including in Edinburgh, Manchester, Ormskirk, Shrewsbury, London, Faversham, Littlehampton, Mansfield, Billingshurst, Dorking, Dunsfold, Milford and Guildford.

All ingredients, professional baking, icing and decorating, are donated so that every penny of the money raised goes directly to support the education of the children in our refuge in Peru. YOU can help too just by making a donation. If you would like to donate to this cause anyway please send a donation marked ‘Christmas cakes’ to http://www.charitychoice.co.uk/project-peru-5466

Here are a few more examples of our cakes this year:
