Orangutan Appeal UK

We fund projects across Borneo to improve the welfare of orangutans.

Charity Registration No. 1138538


My event moto .... First half of the race .. Don't be an idiot ... second half of the race .. Don't be a wimp ... 

The latest event is for #RunAugustRun ... and in 2014 we have a total of 44 people signed up to attempt to run/walk at least 1 mile per day. Last year we managed a total of 2300 miles .. I wonder can we get further this year :) 

I'm loving the events and loving even more being able to help, even just a little, to such a worthwhile cause as the Orangutans ... I would really appreciate if you could spare even just a few ££ to help this very worthwhile cause.

You can keep up to date with my training adventures over here.

I'd like to take an opportunity to thank those who have already sponsored me  - your donations are very much appreciated and I know the money raised is being put to a very good cause.

I'm doing all of these events on behalf of the Orangutan Appeal UK, who are dedicated to the rehabilitation and preservation of Orangutans and their habitat.  

Donating through JustGiving is simple, fast and totally secure. Your details are safe with JustGiving – they’ll never sell them on or send unwanted emails. Once you donate, they’ll send your money directly to the charity and make sure Gift Aid is reclaimed on every eligible donation by a UK taxpayer. So it’s the most efficient way to donate - I raise more, whilst saving time and cutting costs for the charity.

Thanks in advance for anything that you can spare. Keep checking back to the page for updates.
