Blue triangle
Fundraising is an easy and fun way to double the benefit to our charity. By raising essential funds you are powering our work, and by getting your friends and family involved you are raising awareness about the issue of low social mobility. 
We're calling on alumni, supporters and local businesses to get involved with fundraising for Villiers Park, so that together, we can help improve social mobility in the UK.

How to get involved

Whether it's running a marathon, holding a bake-off or skydiving, there are endless ways to have some fun whilst raising money for our charity. 

Set up a fundraising page on Virgin Money Giving and get your family and friends involved.

Our fundraising pack has all you need to get started with raising money for Villiers Park, including ideas for events, activities and challenges for all ages. 

London Marathon 2020

We're super excited to share that we have a place at the London Marathon this year, and that our runner is none other than one of our very own Scholars!

We're really excited for the big day, and to support Kyle throughout this amazing experience. You can read more about his story in our journal, and if you'd like to support him then check out his Virgin Giving page

If you can be there on the day to cheer on Kyle and all the other amazing people running a very long way, we'd love to see you there.

Challenge yourself

We've partnered up with Discover Adventure to offer safe, fun and challenging fundraising events for our supporters to take part in.
