Spring 2024 is shaping up to be an exciting season for our charity – partly thanks to a talented group of youngsters on the south coast of England. On Friday 12 April, 24 young DGHUK supporters will travel up to Cardross, Scotland, to take part in a running challenge in aid of Dr Graham’s Homes. They all come from Beech Grove School, a secondary college in Kent that has been helping to raise funding to support our work with poor and orphaned children in Kalimpong, India.

A date for your diaries!

To help with their fundraising, three of the runners are holding a recital evening at the school on Sunday 24 March. Nigel Rimes (violin), Liam Rimes (cello) and Jonathan Duke (piano) will be playing a range of pieces by Bach, Brahms, Vivaldi and others. The event runs from 2pm-3:30pm, and if you live in the area and would like to pop along to support them, tickets are available now at £12 for adults and £7 for children. Just scan the barcode (right) to book your place. Or you can sign up via the details on the poster below. Don’t live nearby but would still like to support the young people?

You can donate through our website (just tick the option “Is this a donation towards the Hope Run 2024?” when you enter your details). We’d be delighted to hear from you!

What is the Hope Run for DGHUK?

The DGHUK Hope Run is a three-day running challenge that’s taking place from Fri 12 – Sun 14 April in aid of DGHUK sponsored children at Dr Graham’s Homes in Kalimpong, India. One of our supporters, Michael Scott, is organising the event. You can read more about it – and how to support our young runners – on this blog: Fundraising epic takes shape! The Run has been specially designed around Dr Graham himself, as Michael explains: “The event is tracing some of the key places in Dr Graham’s life; Cardross [where the Run begins] was the community where he grew up, and the parish kirk there is where he was ordained as a minister in 1889.” Read more about the DGH Hope Run on Michael’s website.
