Get involved and help transform children's lives

How are you inspired to help?

By getting involved with Open Arms you can help transform the lives of hundreds of vulnerable children in Malawi. You don’t have to climb a mountain, or run a marathon to help (although you can if you would like!) If you are great at baking cakes, happy to talk in public or would like the life changing opportunity of volunteering, there is way to get involved to suit you. 

If you have a fundraising event planned get in touch with our team and we'll support you all the way!

Our Fundraising Heroes

Have a look at some of the amazing stories below for inspiration! If you'd like a copy of our Fundraising Pack or need any support with your fundraiser, please contact us and we'll be happy to help.

After volunteering in Malawi years ago, Helen Lawson took on the challenge of running the Edinburgh Half Marathon in May 2022 and raised nearly £1,100! Amazing achievement, Helen!

John Corrie raised over £2,000 for Open Arms after running the 2021 London Marathon. Phenomenal effort, John!

In France, Emma Morton ran a staggering 100km race in support of Open Arms, raising over €500. Not only that, but she is planning on running a 160km ultra marathon next year!

Thank You!

We couldn’t do it without our fantastic fundraisers, so we’d like to take the chance to say a big thank you for taking part.
