Doing all you can
In 2018-19, 1,307,421 lives were changed through All We Can’s work.
This would not have been possible without the dedication and generosity of our supporters. All We Can supporters baked cakes, sung songs, cycled, cooked, ran, let their light shine at Harvest, bought Extraordinary Gifts at Christmas time, and engaged with All We Can’s work both online and in print. Thank you!
Here are some of our 2018-19 supporter highlights:
Andy Dye – Berlin Marathon, September 2018
Andy Dye (pictured above) is a committed supporter of All We Can, having previously been one of our trustees. In September 2018, Andy took his support to the streets of Germany – running the Berlin Marathon on behalf of All We Can. Andy decided to run for us as “All We Can are putting in to practice the love of God – they are following a Christian and very Methodist principle to go and help those in the most difficult circumstances“. Over £1,000 was raised to support some of the world’s poorest communities. Dankeschön, Andy!
104 organisations are now signed up to the All We Can Partner Church scheme and are journeying with some of the world’s poorest communities in solidarity, love and support. You too could join this community of churches, schools and organisations committed to change. As an All We Can Partner Church your church or group will form a meaningful relationship with unique opportunities. Find out more here: allwecan.org.uk/partner
Jeannette Curtis, 10 years of volunteering
All We Can is so thankful for the commitment of all our volunteers. We are especially grateful for Jeannette, she has spent a total of 10 years volunteering for All We Can! Jeannette continues to volunteer because “All We Can is always moving forward. The office is so friendly, a real breath of fresh air“. She has helped us to send out tens of thousands of resources, create fun and exciting children’s activities and has been an invaluable help with administrative tasks. Thank you, Jeannette!
ASICS London 10K, July 2019
In July 2019, six incredible runners – Pauline Sawyer, Shiro Beaumont, Curt Daniels, Ryan Farmer, Inderjit Bhogal, and Molly Richards – took to the streets of London, to take on the ASICS London 10K.
One of the runners, Pauline, said: “I decided to run for All We Can because they do some great work with people in very poor situations. I also believe they act responsibly and urgently in places of great need and do not hold onto funds, but use it wisely, encouraging hope for many.”
The group collectively raised nearly £2,500 for All We Can’s work around the world. We thank Pauline, Molly, Shiro, Inderjit, Curt and Ryan for getting involved – as well as everyone who supported them in their fundraising journey. The work we do really wouldn’t be possible without all our supporters who have donated to All We Can throughout the year.
