The Perfect Day Foundation

The Perfect Day Foundation was established in 2008 to ensure the friendships formed on the sports fields of Zambia will develop to benefit further generations of sports people. We work closely with Sport in Action, Zambia, promoting leadership, education and HIV/AIDS awareness through sport.

Charity Registration No. 1136511

Story

We are a husband and wife from York with a love for Zambia and the people that live there. Kelly visited for the first time in 2008 through a project part-assisted by Loughborough University where she educated children through sport with an organisation called Sport in Action. The not-for-profit organisation educates and empowers young people throughout Lusaka via sport, in particular football, netball, volleyball and basketball. Kelly visited again in 2009 as the university staff member before we both visited in 2010. We have since made several more visits and in 2016 we raised enough money to build a netball court at the school. 

WHAT ARE WE RAISING THE MONEY FOR?

Mutendere School is in the centre of a large deprived community on the outskirts of Lusaka. In Zambia families need to pay to send a child to school but many of them are educated for free through the kindness of the teaching staff which means they lose out on pay. Mutendere School has ran out of space to educate more children so we want to help build then a new classroom on the school grounds.

THE CHALLENGE

We are going to raise money through sponsorship for taking part in the national three peaks challenge, which involves climbing the three highest peaks of Scotland, England and Wales, hopefully within a 24 hour period.

The total walking distance is 23 miles (37km) and the total ascent is 3064 metres (10,052ft). The total driving distance between the mountains is 462 miles.
