    Weʼve raised £1,334 to Bantay Bata 163

    Childrens Village, Philippines
    Funded on Tuesday, 24th March 2020

    What is crowdfunding?

    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.


    For over 20 years Bantay Bata 163, a part of the ABS-CBN network, has been committed to the prevention of child abuse and exploitation in Philippines.

    In 2014 we were honored to have been able to visit the Children's Village. An amazing place run by amazingly dedicated people. We met with the children who despite their various problems were very warm, friendly and welcoming.

    This was a glimpse into a world many of us cannot imagine, Bantay Bata is literally a lifeline for these children. They save lives, but they cannot do it without support.

    Our visit was very emotional especially when meeting the youngsters at the end, this is when it really hits home and almost breaks your heart. On leaving I guarantee there were not any dry eyes among our group! Although we do not work for ABS-CBN we believe passionately in this cause. Charities like this rely on donations from the public and corporate support from respected companies.

    Some photo's from our last visit to the village HERE .

    Our previous event webpage in support of these children can be found HERE , along with names of organisations that either kindly donated financially or by contributing to the prize draw held at the concert.

    We have set a target for the fundraising simply because we have to, it would be incredible to reach it, phenomenal to surpass it. Every single penny we receive via Just giving will go to Bantay Bata.

    They may be many miles away in another country but with your help we can bring a glimmer of sunshine into some childrens lives.

    Someone has to care, let it be us.

      A big thank you to everyone who kindly donated to our fundraising for Bantay Bata 163. Due to the current Coronavirus outbreak and the prevention measures now being put in place it seems unlikely that another event could be hosted. Therefore we have decided to end this fundraising initiative at the end of March 2020 and, once rceived from JustGiving forward the funds raised to Philippines. Once again thank you all for your amazing support.

      The charity lunch was a great success, with almost £1,000 being taken on the night, spread across food, raffle tickets and donations. Thank you to all the hard working co-ordinators, food donators, raffle ticket sellers and the door staff. An incredible job, well done.

    Childrens Village, Philippines

    In 2014 about £2,000 was raised for Bantay Bata 163, and a similar amount for victims of Typhoon Haiyan. Although never truly forgotten we feel now is time to again think about the abused and disadvantaged children in Philippines. Please support in this venture, Please help.
