Weʼve raised £3,235 to kick-start charity Action Guinea Bissau by running a half-marathon
- Wimbledon Common Half-Marathon
- Funded on Saturday, 9th January 2021
Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered nonprofit.
The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.
Thank you for visiting our Just Giving page!
We have been involved with helping organisations and individuals in Guinea Bissau, West Africa, for the last few years and have now formalised this into a charity - Action Guinea Bissau.
The charity is going to repair vital basic sanitation such as wells and toilets in villages, create small businesses for women with microcredit and help with many health and food emergencies. This is especially needed now because so many people have lost their livelihoods due to lockdown for coronavirus and food and transport prices have tripled.
Anything you can give will make a huge difference! Here is what your donation could provide:
- £5 machete for farming
- £7 watering can for crops
- £15 food for a whole family for 2 weeks
- £70 school for a child for an entire year
- £200 microcredit loan for small business (multiple times)
Read more about Action Guinea Bissau on our website.
This is a covid-secure race with restrictions in place. If for any reason it is cancelled, we will still run our own half-marathon and post results here.

Thanks so much to everyone that's donated so far! We've been informed that the Wimbledon half-marathon won't take place physically but everyone can still complete the event virtually with the app, still get the medal as this is a safer alternative due to covid. We've planned our route as the 'Ponds and Highland Bull Half-Marathon' starting at 9:30AM, 11th September. Updates, photos and medals to come.
