Volunteer in Malawi
My trip to Sparkle Malawi
The idea was that I was going down to show the teachers how to coach football in a particular style that helped with other areas of education. In truth, whilst my intention was to teach, I ended up learning. An immersive experience which proved to be the happiest place I’ve ever visited. Sparkle is a safe haven, an inspirational arena and network of support that showcases a constant willingness to learn, evolve and improve the lives of others. It truly is a remarkable place and I’ve been connected to the charity ever since. - Dan
Volunteer at home
Working across various projects from anywhere in the world
"During our time at Sparkle we've been able to support in the development of volunteer & Operational Management Strategy, implementing management systems, developing tools and process that capture program data, process and continuous improvement reviews, grant applications, and general support and guidance for the CEO. After seeing Sarah present Clifford Chance, the strategic partner, and spending some time in Malawi in 2017, we vowed to volunteer again when there was an opportunity" - Kelli & Paul
Every single day we help more children to Sparkle but without vital fundraising from our amazing supporters like you, this work would not continue. Whether sponsoring a programme, organising your own event or joining one of Sparkle’s, there are many ways to get involved.
Puddle jumping, mudslides and snow boot running
Jasmine (8, West London) wanted to do something for charity that would help focus her attention. The challenge was agreed - Run at least 1 mile every day in February no matter what the weather brings. Many days were dark, cold, wet and windy. It is fair to say that this challenge was significantly more difficult than expected and took special motivation and encouragement from family, friends, teachers and Jasmines Headmaster. After tears, pain and a few disagreements, Jasmine persisted and completed her challenge on Sunday 28 February, with the sun shining. In total Jasmine ran more than 68 kilometres in February. That's a whopping 14 miles more than her target!
Sponsoring programmes through motorsports
"I chose to support Sparkle as it was closely linked to my school and I had seen Sarah speak at Felsted from when I was young. It was therefore much more personal to me and Sparkle itself also has a connected, down to earth, family feel that’s hard to get with other charities. I am supporting Sparkle through my motorsport career exposure and sponsorship I’ve received previously has all gone to the charity. It was great to go there in October of 2019 and see the difference that the donations have made and the smiles on the kid’s faces." - Gus
