Galvin’s Chance is only able to operate thanks to the generous and imaginative ideas of our supporters. Here are just a few of the ways we generate the funds needed to help young people through Galvin’s Chance. If you have any ideas to raise funds for Galvin's Chance please email on email@example.com
Mayfair Park and Tower Race
Galvin's Chance only exists thanks to the generosity of our donors. The Mayfair Park and Tower Race is the principal fundraiser for the Galvin's Chance programme. The race incorporates a unique 4.5km run around Hyde Park's Serpentine Lake followed by a gruelling tower run up 28 floors to the top of the London Hilton on Park Lane. Participants are required to raise a minimum of £250 sponsorship for the race with all net profits supporting Galvin's Chance.
2013 will see the fourth annual Mayfair Park and Tower Race take place. The race will be held on Friday May 31st, with numbers limited to 150 runners. The race will start at 8am, culminating in a Pommery breakfast for all runners. Supporters can find out more or register in 2013's race by clicking here
The Mince Pie Project
Galvin’s Chance has been selected as one the beneficiaries for this year’s proceeds from the second annual The Mince Pie Project. The fundraiser is a project by Live & Let Dine. 100 of the UK’s greatest chefs have agreed to participate in this year’s project. Chefs Michel Roux Jr, Raymond Blanc, Marcus Wareing, Clare Smyth and Claire Clark have confirmed they’re taking part in this year's event. Each chef will cook a unique batch of 50 mince pies.
Every box will be sold online in a 72-hour auction from midday on Tuesday, 11th December to midday on Friday, 14th December. Find out more by clicking here
Hadrian's Wall Race - A Coast to Coast Run
Hadrian’s Wall is 84 miles long and was the most heavily fortified border in the Roman Empire. It runs from the North Sea to the Irish Sea and Fred Sirieix and Simon Vincent will be running it for Galvin’s Chance. The plan is for Fred to start at the North Sea end of Hadrian’s Wall and Simon will start on the Irish Sea end of Hadrian’s Wall. Hopefully after 42 miles each they meet in the middle. If you feel like helping them out, running all or part of the way or just motivating us with your good wishes and money please leave your comments on their online giving page.
The date of the run is to be confirmed but it will probably be in October when the sun will no doubt be shining on our crazy adventure!
