1) Run London Landmarks Half Marathon 24th March 2019

The London Landmarks Half Marathon takes runners through the heart of the Capital with views of some of its most iconic landmarks such as Big Ben,  St Paul's Cathedral and the Tower of London. 13,000 runners will travel this novel route exploring the capital's cultural landmarks and hidden streets. Join the movement to protect human rights defenders by signing up today.   

Date: Sunday 24th March 2019     Location: Pall Mall, London, SW1Y 5NP   Distance: 13.1 miles        Registration Fee: £25     Fundraising target: £350   Signup Deadline: 1st February 2019

 

We ask all runners participating in the London Landmarks Half Marathon to raise a minimum of £350. Participants must reach their target by a month  after the date of the event (24th April 2019). To sign up contact our Fundraising Officer on fundraiser@peacebrigades.org.uk. 

 

2) Free Festival Entry

Here's the deal: You will receive free entry to the festival (past events have included Glastonbury, Latitude, Reading). Where the event runs over a number of days a secure camping area is set up with our own toilets, showers, a subsidised canteen and a bar. For some events, transport is provided.
 
In exchange, you work at festival bars for a few hours each day to raise funds for PBI, through Workers Beer Company. After each event Workers Beer Company donates money to PBI each hour every volunteer has worked. These payments help PBI to continue providing protection and support to over 600 human rights defenders worldwide. Over the last 30 years many millions have been raised for charities and campaigning groups in this way. To be considered, please complete this File Volunteer registration form.docx and send it to fundraiser@peacebrigades.org.uk
 

3) Plan your own fundraising activity 

  • Get your office fundraising! You could do charity breakfasts, dress down days, cake bakes, lunchtime auctions or host a pub quiz.
  • You could do a sponsored run, swim or cycle for PBI UK, on your own or with your friends or colleagues. We’ll give you a PBI -shirt and come and cheer for you on the day!
  • Organise an event around a special day - International Women's Day, Human Rights Day, World Peace Day...the list goes on! 
  • Do you know any musicians or poets? You could host an open mic night or put on a night at a local venue.  
  • Host a dinner party or a games night. You could ask friends to make a donation to attend, wow them with your culinary skills and boost fundraising by having a raffle or an auction.
  • Organise a swap shop – invite your friends to donate unwanted clothes and other goods and then auction them off to each other over a cup of tea or a beer.
  • Raffle or auction - Round up prizes from people you know – whether it’s a bottle of whiskey they have lurking in the back of the cupboard, or a skill they can teach for an hour – or go into local businesses with a letter from us and ask for donations (you'll be surprised what you can get for free!). Then raffle or auction them off at an event!

*Top tip - why not see if you can get your workplace to match fund the money you raise? Some employers will donate a pound for every pound you raise. 

Whatever you decide to do for us and however much you raise, we will support you every step of the way.
