The Carbon Intelligence Charity initiative has been supporting two incredible charities, Lymphoma Action and SolarAid, for the past three years. Throughout the year we host a range of fundraising activities, everything from clothes swaps to gig nights, with the main fundraising event being a physical challenge. In 2019 we cycled 275km from London to Paris in 24 hours, raising over £6000.
This year, in light of COVID restrictions and wanting to make the event more inclusive we decided on a half marathon charity walk through London’s royal parks.
On Saturday November 14th we’ll be setting off around London and raising awareness for our these wonderful charities. Any donations are warmly welcomed. Just £20 could help a patient who has just been diagnosed with lymphoma to receive the information and support they need or provide 5 solar lights to African families. Donate today.
Here’s a little info about the great work of our chosen charities:
Lymphoma Action is the UK’s only charity dedicated to lymphoma, the fifth most common cancer. It raises money to conduct vital research on lymphoma (cancer of the lymphatic system), and to provide invaluable support to those with the disease and their friends and family.
SolarAid is an international charity that combats both poverty and climate change. It provides access to solar lights in Malawi and Zambia to help catalyse solar markets and eradicate the kerosene lamp. As a result, over 10 million people now have access to safe, clean solar light.
