Your passion means we can support the most vulnerable
Sofa to Summit
On the 19th April, we will be embarking on a two-week virtual journey to the summit of Mount Kilimanjaro, raising money for survivors of modern slavery and those seeking a crime-free future, and we challenge you to join the expedition.
At 5895 metres high, Kilimanjaro is the highest mountain in Africa. The route is 49 miles in total, 7,392 steps a day for 14 days.
We are raising funds for a vital restoration hub, which will deliver two areas of key support:
Restoration Packs – for people who enter any of our services with very little or nothing. The restoration pack would go beyond the essential list and provide pamper items, chocolate, slippers and other items which bring comfort and show someone they are cared for.
Renovation Packs – For people moving into a property that requires items to make a house a home, such as rugs, lamps and pictures..
We’re aiming to raise a total of £62,000, which will cover the costs of the hub set up and running for the first year.

Other ways to help
Whether you’re planning to host a bake sale, run a marathon or organise an event – if you need any materials, support or advice please get in touch via firstname.lastname@example.org
A great way to publicise your fundraising efforts is to create an online giving page. Simply visit the City Hearts JustGiving page and follow the “Fundraise for us” link to get started.
By creating an online fundraising page you might find that it is easier to spread the word and receive more donations, especially by using social media.
Make It Personal
- Make sure you personalise your fundraising page as much as possible. Add a photo. People are more likely to donate if they know a bit about you, City Hearts, and the reasons behind your fundraising efforts.
- Set a fundraising target to help encourage support – the closer you get to your goal it may well inspire people to give a little extra!
- Write a blog could help, especially if you’re training for an event. Keeping supporters updated gives them an insight into how much time and effort you’re investing into fundraising.
