Meet our fundraisers

The Salvation Army work with some of the most disadvantaged people in our communities; including homeless people, older people, unemployed people, those suffering from drug and alcohol addiction, as well as victims of human trafficking and major emergencies.

Our vital work supporting the most disadvantaged in our communities wouldn’t be possible without the support of our incredible fundraisers, who are taking on all kinds of challenges and remarkable things, to help transform the lives of the most vulnerable.

Meet our awesome bunch of supporters below and get some inspiration to kick-start your fundraising!

Harrison’s Hair Cut to Help

“I really wanted to do something important to help lots of different people. I had been growing my hair long since I was a baby. So I made the decision to have my hair cut. I wanted to help as many people as possible, so I chose to raise money for the Salvation Army, as I know that they do lots of different things to help people in need, all through the year, and in many different circumstances. I had my hair cut at school in an assembly in front of the whole school (over 500 children, teachers and staff). My hair was cut off in 30cm plaits, and this was sent to the Little Princess Trust, who provides real hair wigs for children suffering with hair loss. I am very pleased that I made the decision to do this. I have raised over £1,000 for the Salvation Army." – Harrison MacFarlane 

Charlotte’s Pink Collar Boxing Match

Charlotte put herself in the ring and took part in a boxing tournament in memory of her Grandma. This incredible event raised a whopping £317.50 to support our services with vulnerable people.

“. I undertook 8 weeks of training in preparation for my charity fight night and although it was a tough challenge, I’m so glad I did it and raised vital funds for a charity that was so important to my Grandma.”

 

Team Kindred’s extreme mud run

Team Kindred, a family team, took part in an extreme mud run to mark the 10th anniversary of the passing of their beloved mum.

"...the buzz of the event and taking part with all my family in memory of my beloved Mum was all the incentive I needed. We were also so proud to be running in our Salvation Army t-shirts and got a few mentions over the tanoy. Even better that we surpassed our target of £1000K as this was the charity my Mum really supported and that my Dad still champions today" - Susan, Team Kindred.
