Revised format – Sponsoring Fundraiser for 2020!

$54,800 raised - thank you all!

Help Nicolas Robinson School keep educating the students

during the Covid-19 Pandemic


Recording of the celebration held on Saturday 19th September on Zoom.

The event included:

  • A review of progress at the Nicolas Robinson School.

  • A presentation by George Potts, UK trustee, about his walk to the South Pole to raise finance for computers at the Nicolas School, and his subsequent visit to the school in November 2019.

  • Recordings from 3 of our students who went on to study overseas.

  • A live draw for the Raffle prize winners.

  • A live Q&A session with Kathryn and Max.

  • Early announcement on funds raised from the virtual event.

Participants will participate in the event “virtually” ie we will participate in our own “pods” This will require participants to organise their own individual walks or other fundraising ideas, on the actual day of our meeting (19th September) or during their holidays, before the event, and this will enable you to raise sponsorship for the activity you decide to do. Participants may choose to do an extra-special walk or add something creative to make it fun or a challenge and be sponsored for this.


Examples: –

Run/walk a marathon!

Wear rainbow colours

Three-legged walk

Walk backwards

Cycle or swim

Climb a mountain!


Participants may also choose to walk as families or with groups of friends, observing Covid-19 safety rules and could make a short film (remembering to use the mobile phone in horizontal format) of their participation. This film can then be sent to Rainbows4children and we would edit it together for the evening “Virtual event”. 


As for “normal” events, those planning to walk or run should look for sponsorship from family, friends, and work colleagues which helps widen the network of support.

Participants would then be asked to email their estimate of the amount raised to Rainbows4children prior to the “Virtual Event” and this will help to give us an estimate of the total amount raised.
