Aid Match UK From now until 4th June, everything you fundraise will be matched, pound for pound, by the UK Government, meaning your support will go even further! This is part of our 'She is the answer' appeal - helping women and girls fight against the devastating climate crisis.

If you want to fundraise for ActionAid, but are stuck for ideas, then you’ve come to the right place!
