Donate to Marshal Papworth


There are many ways in which you can support the Marshal Papworth Fund and help many more students in developing countries to grow themselves out of hunger. All the money you help to raise will be used to make a lasting difference within rural communities across developing countries.

• Why not do your own thing? Organise a coffee morning or cake sale, arrange a tournament and get participants to pay an entry fee, have a clear out and sell unwanted items at a car boot or garage sale, open up your garden for the day and ask visitors to make a small donation, or why not organise an auction of promises
• Become a Marshal Papworth Friend
• Undertake a charity event or challenge on our behalf
• Volunteer your services to help build our annual ‘African village’ in July
• Organise a community/school fundraising event
• Make an annual or one off donation to help support a specific student or element of our scholarship programme
• Mention the Marshal Papworth Fund in your will.

The opportunities are endless. For more information on how you can support our Fund please contact Sandra Lauridsen on 01733 363514 or email
