Howard Mayson is one of our most treasured supporters! Howard has been supporting CARE for over a decade now since he saw our work first-hand in Africa. Over these last 10 years, Howard has completed over 50 marathons and ultra-marathons, raising almost £100,000 for CARE International.

Dan Tastic Glastonbury is an incredible individual who, along with some dedicated volunteers, has been supporting us for the last few years by painting bins at Glastonbury. He decided to start taking donations for CARE in return for bespoke hand-painted bins and has so far had requests for subjects from fire-breathing badgers to tap-dancing foxes. Since beginning the bin painting, Dan has raised nearly £4,000 for CARE.

Morgan Saint, from the Bechtel team, took part in the CARE Construction Challenge for two consecutive years. The Bechtel team were awarded the highest fundraising team twice and are always good fun on the event. Morgan and his colleagues choose to support CARE because “it’s a great team-building challenge organised with fun in mind! We’re able to push ourselves outside our comfort zone, while raising money to help those that aren’t so comfortable...”

Gill Holloway was an avid supporter of CARE for many years before she sadly died in April 2014. As an ex-teacher she was particularly concerned about education and supporting survivors of traumatic and devastating events. Throughout her life she was an artist and she stipulated in her will that her daughter Anna should hold an exhibition of her remaining work in aid of CARE. The auction raised over £4,000 and we couldn’t be more grateful to Gill for her passion for CARE, and of course to Anna for turning Gill’s wishes into reality.

Dulwich Wood Primary School decided they wanted to help the people of West Africa in their fight against Ebola. Led by the school council, they designed a campaign to ‘Kick Ebola Out’, raising an incredible £345 – but they did not stop. They also had a shoe in their classrooms which they filled with money to help go even further towards stopping the spread of Ebola, as well as helping those who have been left behind by this devastating virus.

Gary and Michelle Nicol have braved crashes, collisions, potholes and dusty roads - all to raise money for CARE International. Gary and Michelle began supporting CARE in 2013 through Lendwithcare but in February 2015 they decided they wanted to see CARE’s work in action and so they took on the Vietnam to Cambodia cycle challenge, raising over £6,000 for CARE. Gary told us, “It was a real privilege to visit a CARE project in Vietnam and Lendwithcare entrepreneurs in Cambodia, and see and hear first-hand the positive impact the loans and other support provided by CARE make to the lives of people living there.”
