NOW YOU ARE AS INSPIRED AS WE ARE, CHOOSE HOW TO SUPPORT US
Fly solo and choose your way to help close the Education Poverty gap… and don’t worry, your fundraising doesn’t have to be an active challenge like Megan’s who ran unsupported from John O’Groats to Land’s End in 40 days!
We love working with the corporate sector and strive to be as integrated as possible throughout the whole process – from ideas and events, right through to packing schoolbags.

GROUPS & CLUBS
We love nothing more than presenting the ethos of our life changing work so that you too will feel inspired to spread the word and broaden our network of support and donors.
We have built up a portfolio of School in a Bag run events that we put on throughout the year including our biggest annual fundraiser Home Farm Fest.
The proceeds from our events generally help cover the running costs of the charity – you see, we fund raise too!

THE MAN WHO UNI-CYCLED AROUND THE WORLD
“My name is Ed Pratt, I am going to unicycle around the world and want to raise money for charity – why should I chose you?”
This was the introduction that lead to Ed becoming not only the first man to have circumnavigated the globe on one wheel but also our biggest ever fundraiser. Ed was just 19 years old when he set off from School in a Bag HQ on March 14, 2015 and he returned 3 years and 135 days later on July 27th 2018.
Ed originally set a fundraising target of £5,000 which he passed whilst riding through Europe. He upped this to £18,000, the amount of miles he would ride.
Whilst riding across the USA, he received a donation for $100,000 from Brad Armstrong and an invitation to visit the donor. During his stay, a Skype call was arranged so that we could say thank you. Brad asked what our goals were and at the time we needed to fund 12,813 SchoolBags to reach our 100,000 SchoolBag milestone. Right there and then, Brad agreed to up his donation to $370,000 to help us reach the target.
In all, the World Unicycle Tour raised enough to fund 15,000 SchoolBags.
Thank you so much Ed!
