Emilies Charities

Investing in children's futures

Thanks for your support again in 2017!

We’d like to express sincere thanks to everyone who kindly supported Emilie’s Charities in 2017, whether it be by donation, organisation of/sponsorship of/ attendance at an event or other means. Your contributions have made an enormous difference to the lives of the children and young adults supported.

As well as sponsoring a number of children in orphanages around the world, since the charity began in 2005, through our sponsorship, 25 young adults from economically poor countries have gone on to study and receive qualifications and a further 23 are currently continuing with their courses.

Special thanks go this year to Eleanor who ran a second marathon for the benefit of Emilie’s Charities (this time in the mountains of Switzerland!)

Thanks for your support in 2016!

We’d like to express sincere thanks to everyone who kindly supported Emilie’s Charities in 2016, whether it be by donation, organisation/sponsorship of an event, attendance at the Emilie’s picnic or other means. Your contributions have made an enormous difference to the lives of the children and young adults supported.

As well as sponsoring a number of children in orphanages around the world, since the charity began in 2005, through our sponsorship, 24 young adults from economically poor countries have gone on to study and receive qualifications and a further 21 are currently continuing with their courses.

Special thanks go to Elisha who finished her amazing 3000 mile cycle tour of New Zealand for Emilie’s Charities in 2016, to Ama for her sponsored London to Brighton tandem ride and also to John and Louise who asked people to donate to Emilie’s Charities rather than give them wedding presents.

Eleanor’s Marathon

Eleanor Robinson, who was a close friend of Emilie at University, ran the Dublin Marathon on 26th October 2015 for the benefit of Emilie’s Charities.

Eleanor’s time was 4.37.55 and she raised over £1000 for Emilie’s Charities.

Huge thanks Eleanor!

Elisha’s Tour of New Zealand by bicycle!

Novice cyclist Elisha will spend up to five months (hopefully under three but – just in case!) from December 2015 cycling the coast of New Zealand. The ride will begin and end at Auckland airport and take in the most northern and southern points of the islands. It will cover approximately 4000 miles of undulating terrain.

The ride will be unsupported, meaning that Elisha will have to carry all of her own luggage and equipment over each gruelling mile!

If Elisha can raise over £5000 for Emilie’s Charities, she will complete the entire ride wearing elf ears – Fellowship of the Ring style!

Kent Coastal Challenge

On March 13th 2015, Michael Nowicki, Phil Bradburn, and Keith Dean set out to take on the Kent Coastal Challenge. The run took them from Dartford to Hythe over a period of four days – a total of 176.4 gruelling miles (including a total ascent of 7,700ft). They were joined by friends: Andrew Burgess, Graham Perkins, Liam Gibson, Zoe Norman, Sophie Ravenscroft, Sarah Cox, Michael Nicolaides, Simon Roberts, Sarah Doughty, Susie Bradburn, James Lampert, Paul Thompson, and Michael White at various points on the way. Phil and Keith completed the run in the dark on the evening of March 16th (Emilie’s birthday). Unfortunately, Michael couldn’t join them on day four as he twisted his ankle towards the end of day three. We’d like to congratulate all the brave and hardy souls involved and extend special thanks to Michael for organising the event and arranging for sponsorship to go to Emilie’s Charities!

Lucy’s Marathon Update

Many congratulations to Emilie’s cousin Lucy for successfully running the 2014 London marathon!

Very well done Lucy and thanks so much for doing the run to raise money for Emilie’s Charities! 

Note, from the pictures,  that Lucy’s running vest seemed to indicate by the end of the race that Lucy had become Emilie’s cleaner!
