Earlier this year, Guy, John, Mike, and Steve broke the world record to become the oldest team of four to row across the Atlantic, raising over £12,500 for Open Arms. What an achievement!

The ORBIS 2019 Expedition saw Dame Kelly Holmes and team of fundraisers complete three trail runs in Southern Malawi, raising over £22,000 towards the food costs of Open Arms. Incredible!

In Miles4Malawi, Charlie, Tim, and Theo drove 10,000 miles from Wales to Mongolia, crossing 21 countries and raising an amazing £3,700! Well done guys!
