Fundraise for us
Different people choose different ways to help.
Sponsored fun run
We were delighted to receive a cheque for £4,000 from Shrewsbury House School in Surbiton, Surrey. This amazing sum of money had been raised by the boys taking part in a sponsored run. Hannah and Wendy spoke to the staff and pupils at an assembly about the importance of good mental health and were presented with the cheque by the Head Boy and the House Captains. A huge thank you to all the pupils, staff and parents for their generosity.
Beauty products raise money for mental health
When Melanie Monks was setting up her new beauty product company ‘Skin & Bones’, she wanted to give something back. Good mental health is a cause close to her heart and she is kindly donating 1% of the sale price of each product sold at www.skinandbones.eu to Partnership for Children
Bag packing and bucket collection
Six wonderful volunteers joined the staff team to pack bags and raise money at the opening of a new Aldi store in Kingston upon Thames. Whilst we packed, we were able to tell people about our work and hand out Zippy Tips cards to children.
Tim loved life...
“We all know that Tim lived his life to bursting. He saw the beauty in the everyday, and the beautiful side of every person he met. We would like to celebrate that.” Read more …
Catherine Long and clients donate
‘Everybody has been really positive. They just think it’s brilliant that you started from scratch and now you’ve helped a million children in so many countries around the world. Plus, they like the fact that you’ve arranged for all the donations to this appeal to be matched £1 for £1 – people feel their support will be twice as effective. Read more...
“I decided that running one event wasn’t enough. So I came up with a bit more of a challenge – to cycle 2,012 kilometres, run 201.2 and swim 20.12.” Read more…
Chris Taylor runs 56 miles for Zippy
"The last 20 metres, along the pebbles of Brighton Beach, almost turned my legs to jelly, but I staggered across the finish line 11 hours and 25 minutes after starting." Read more...
Paul Rubenstein on top of Africa
"People have been much more generous than I'd anticipated, and I guess there are two reasons for that. They see that the charity is worth supporting, and they know that climbing Kilimanjaro isn't a five minute challenge and that a lot of effort has gone into it." Read more
Kingston students baked cakes
“We like to support smaller charities, and we also liked the fact that Partnership for Children is based very close to our school in Kingston upon Thames and helps children all over the world.” Read more
Dan Silas cycled from London to Paris
“It was just something I fancied doing, pushing myself, giving something back. I do a fair bit of cycling and ride to work every day, but it was harder than I’d expected. Luckily, the weather was marvellous and it was a great experience.” Read more
Hayley Long jumped out of a plane
"It was so scary! I didn't really believe I'd do it until the plane got to 9,000 feet - and then I realised I have to! But it was a brilliant experience, especially the freefall - even thought I had my eyes closed most of the time."
Chris Bale ran his first half-marathon
"It was going well until about a mile from the finish. Then, with legs getting tired and blisters bubbling nicely, they made us run down a cobbled street. That was cruel! But family and friends were glad they didn't have to do it and were very generous with their sponsorship."
Hayley Cooke's first birthday present
"One-year-olds really don't need to be showered with presents, and so I thought it would be better to give a donation that would help lots of children. Jessica's parents were thrilled and she loved the colourful Zippy card!"
