Supporters of NI Children to Lapland and Days to Remember Trust
Over the years, our supporters have come up with all sorts of ways to raise funds for the Charity, from jail breaks to sponsored ‘Walks to Scotland’ and cabaret shows, from abseiling to the regular challenges taken on by the Carrick Cycle Club.
We’ve had school Christmas jumper days and sparkling afternoon teas, Santa swims (and fun runs) and busking by the Ukelele Jam.
Ethan and Oliver’s Swimming Challenge
In 2019, over 6 months of Wednesday evenings, Ethan Pollock, (image left) and Oliver Dickey (image right ), who suffer from spina bifida and cerebral palsy respectively, swam the equivalent of the English Channel, or 1400 lengths of the Coleraine Grammar School pool.
This was their way of saying ‘thanks’ for their trip to Lapland and their way of giving other children the same opportunity.
Joshua’s Marathon Challenge May 2021
The 25 year old Joshua Eastwood from Donaghadee completed the amazing challenge of running A MARATHON EVERY DAY in May 2021!
Joshua raised over £20,000 for the charities NI Children to Lapland and Days to Remember Trust and Cancer Research by running the distance from Belfast to Berlin. The money raised by Joshua was split amongst the two charities.
Other Fundraising Highlights
The more money we raise, the more children we can help!
