My story

The Sheffield Night Hike is an annual walk to raise money for Christian Aid.

This event extends the Christian Aid 70k in May fundraising scheme to 700k in July to hopefully raise at least £700 for Christian Aid. It is not in May it is on Saturday 6 July, and it is not 70k in a single walk. The route is 15km (about 9 miles), so we need 50 walkers for 700k

See our Sheffield Night Hike website for more information, route details and registration via Eventbrite.

We are taking on this challenge of 700k in July to help people push back against poverty.

Malnourishment and poverty affect more than 70% of people in Burundi. Christian Aid are working to empower families in Burundi to build reliable and diverse incomes. Take Aline, for example. She found a lifeline in Christian Aid after she felt the full force of extreme poverty, when an early marriage ended in abuse and violence. We helped her with small business training and she set up as a grocery wholesaler. Today, Aline can afford food, clothes, and essential healthcare for her family.

There’s more people Christian Aid could reach. The money raised can help ensure more people get the skills and knowledge they need to fulfil their hopes and ambitions.  £10 could provide one person with the training that supports their family to set up a small business, such as selling home-grown vegetables.

Together we can make a lasting difference.  Thank you for your support!

How your money helps

Poverty pushed Aline to the brink. She was abused, homeless and hungry. But Aline pushed back harder. With Christian Aid funded small business training, she achieved what had seemed impossible, a vital income for her and her children.

Fundraising this Christian Aid Week will ensure more people in Burundi get the skills and knowledge they need to push back against the inhumanity of poverty.
