Supporting UKRAINE

Many local residents are helping those displaced from their homes as a result of the Ukraine conflict by accommodating families and individuals in and around Burnham, the Farnhams and surrounding areas. However, there are millions still in Ukraine who are homeless and in urgent need of shelter, food, clothing and medical assistance. The money raised from the Run and your donation will go directly to charities and organisations who supporting those people most affected.

If you would like to make a donation you can do so when you Register or via our Charities Aid Foundation page where you can also set up your own fundraising page
