Supporting Article 25 with South Downs fundraiser walk

Scott Brownrigg continues its support of Article 25 with South Downs fundraiser walk

25.07.14

Scott Brownrigg is continuing its support of leading built environment charity, Article 25 for a third consecutive year. 

The practice will be raising funds for both Article 25 and Cancer Research via a 25 mile South Downs Walk on Saturday 6th September in which it hopes to raise a minimum of £4,000 for the charities.  Walking a 25 mile section of the 100 miles South Downs Trail which runs from Winchester through the stunning South Downs National Park to Eastbourne on the edge of the Seven Sisters Country Park, the walk will start at Housedean Farm off the A27 and finish at Beachy Head.

Article 25 is a UK charity that designs, builds, and manages projects to provide better shelter wherever there is disaster, poverty, or need. It brings experienced, field-appropriate professional skills and academically rigorous research findings to NGOs who want to build.

The practice has to-date raised over £15,000 for Article 25. Monies raised from previous fundraising activities have helped to fund the design costs for charity’s School Building Programme in Burkina Faso, West Africa. The programme aims to provide safe and flexible learning environments for 1,100 children to study and develop a wide range of skills, empowering them to take future leadership roles in their community. It is hoped that this will facilitate the growth and development of sustainable and self-sufficient communities in Burkina Faso, strengthen livelihoods and ultimately reduce poverty. The first new school, located in the town of Gourcy is now complete; its design is being rolled out to other schools in the region.
