Where’s Wally? Weekender!

We are thrilled to announce our first ever Where’s Wally? Weekender in March 2021. Don the classic Where’s Wally? red and white stripes and run, walk or jog your own 1k, 5k or 10k route to help support the literacy of disadvantaged children.

This year we’re excited to be going nationwide and holding the very first Where’s Wally? virtual run. You can take part anywhere and at any time during the weekend – it is up to you! You can enter on your own or encourage your family, friends or colleagues to join you (in a socially distanced way!) We can’t wait to see Wally’s up and down the country.

As a charity that exists to change the lives of the UK’s most disadvantaged children, there has never been a more important time for our work.

Every penny you raise by taking part in our Where’s Wally? Weekender, will help support the literacy and learning of children across the UK, giving them a route out of poverty and changing their life story.

Fundraising target: £50

All participants who raise at least £50 will be entered into a draw to win some fantastic prizes!

The easiest way to get started with your fundraising is to set up a page on JustGiving, and follow our top tips for a really great page.
