World Refugees – Campaign for Help







On the 17th June 2020, at 12.00 mid-day I will be fulfilling a personal challenge to do 100 one arm press-ups within a time limit of 3 minutes to raise funds for the UK branch of the UN refugee agency: UNHCR - UK.

I'm an English language teacher, campaigner and fundraiser for refugees.   67 years of age and from the UK.

The event will be live on facebook on the 17th June 2020, at 12.00 midday.  I'll be having witnesses on the day to check that the challenge is fulfilled correctly.  I've been training for the event since February 2020.  Please follow my regular preparation updates (pictures and videos) leading up to the final day on facebook live, on the 17th June:

Why am  I doing this?

I would like to raise as much money as possible during this period of time of the Corona virus global pandemic, for refugees.   All money raised is going direct to the UK branch of the UNHCR, United Nations Refugee Agency.   Also, currently it is Refugee Week and this is a good time to raise awareness and raise funds.
