Nestled deep within the South Atlantic Ocean, St Helena is one of the most remote islands in the world. Renowned for it's rich history, unspoiled beauty and unique culture, it is vast becoming a popular tourist destination due to it's newly built airport.
However being so isolated, access to appropriate healthcare and medical treatment can be difficult. Vulnerable people do not receive the relevant support they need. Community organisations that have a positive impact on the residents do not have sufficient funds to complete the sterling work they do.
We host a number of internationally acclaimed fundraising events to generate funds to not only generate funds to these organisations and individuals but to preserve the unique culture of St Helena Island.
St Helena Sports day fundraising campaign
Due to the current COVID-19 pandemic, we have had no choice but to cancel St Helena Sports Day 2020. This has come as quite a significant blow to not only us but The St Helenian community too.
To continue our mission of supporting those in great need on St Helena, we have decided to launch an online fundraiser.
We want to raise £5000 for our partner charities and organisations on St Helena and we need your help.
Please donate to our online fundraiser so we can continue to make a positive impact on the islands residents.
