Fundraising calendar

100 miles in March – in March each year, we form an international group on the Strava app with the goal of each walking, running or cycling 100 miles in March with the goal of each raising £100 GBP / €100 EU / $100 USD.

Vision for Hope – Annual children’s art competition our Instagram page raising money for children’s eye tests in sub-Saharan African and the Caribbean schools.  Parents upload their children’s artwork on a theme to Instagram with the hashtag #vision4hope and make a donation to win a prize of art equipment for their child.

Gratifoods – We want to know your healthy thanks-giving and harvest recipes.  Host a pot-luck dinner with friends where you each bring a healthy home-cooked recipe, share videos and picture on our Facebook page and donate.  Healthy, homecooked recipes can help our community combat Type-2 diabetes and high blood-pressure, that can result in sight-loss other health complications.

End of Year Fundraising Dinner – Book your place and celebrate your year with ABALON Trust at our annual fundraising dinner.  Currently this is held in London, U.K. in December, but we also like to host dinners in other parts of the world so that our international community can come together and celebrate.
