Ormiston Children and Families Trust is East Anglia’s leading children’s charity, supporting over 130,000 children across 40 projects every year. They believe that every child should be loved, nurtured and valued, regardless of their background or current circumstance.
To help them achieve this they organise fundraising events throughout the year and always welcomes new faces. By getting involved you can enjoy an exciting new challenge, meet new people, and do something different with colleagues, friends or family.
Ormiston is launching an event in early 2014 that is aimed at getting kids active while raising money for a good cause.
Taking place on Sunday 16th March 2014, Ormiston’s ‘Children’s Marathon’ is a 2.6 mile fun run for children of all ages. Held a Trinity park in Ipswich (home of the Suffolk show) the event is open to children of all abilities and every child who takes part will receive an Ormiston medal.
Registration is just £5 per person and the charity is hoping children will be able to raise some sponsorship too. As an added incentive, every race-goer that manages to raise more than £26.20 will receive a special reward!

Bake up a Buzz
Ormiston are asking people to dust off their cake tins and get baking like crazy, to help raise funds and join in our ‘Bake up a Buzz’ week from 1st March – 9th March 2014. Baking and selling cakes is so simple and so much fun!
Rachael Mittell Ormiston’s Community Fundraiser for Suffolk said “Whether you are selling a tray of freshly-baked brownies in the playground, cupcakes in the office, or organising a cake sale in the local village hall, this is a fantastic way to raise money.”
Visit ormiston.org/bake to find out how you can get involved.
Or how about putting on your own event, it’s a great way to support Ormiston – what you do isn’t limited – get creative! Ormiston will support you every step of the way.
