Right now, over 1 million people across the south west are living in poverty, while over 4 million tonnes of good-to-eat food is wasted every year across the food industry. That’s enough for 10 billion meals!   

Join team FareShare South West and raise vital funds to help join the dots between food waste and hunger, and transform an environmental problem into social good. 

Avon Gorge Abseil – Saturday 5 October

Take in incredible views of the iconic Avon Gorge in Bristol as you descend around 30 meters with the support of one of the experienced instructors from The Climbing Academy. Feeling nervous? Why not rope in a friend, colleague or family member to take on this epic challenge with you? There’s no training required, and it’s suitable for anyone aged 10+! 

Eden Marathon and Half Marathon – Sunday 20 October 

Turn miles into meals at Cornwall’s biggest running event! It’s a challenging route through Cornwall’s dramatic Clay Country and you can choose between full and half marathon distances. Still on the fence? All runners get a pasty and a beer at the finish line! 

I have an idea… 

We can’t wait to hear it! Wing walks, office bake sales, church dinners or community carol concerts… we love seeing people get creative as they fundraise for FareShare South West. Our fabulous fundraising team will be on hand with tips to make your event the biggest possible success, so let us know what you’re thinking and we’ll be in touch!
