Last year you wonderful leg lovers did some exciting, impressive and weird things to raise £9,502 – enough to get a staggering 792 prosthetics over to Africa.
Fundraisers of the year 2019
Big massive pats on the backs and huge massive thank yous to Legs’ top fundraisers of 2019 – Owen and Charlie – they both took part in the Superhero Series Triathlon and Winter Wonderwheels events.
Between them, they ran 6k, cycled 3k and ran 150 meters – raising enough to get 108 legs over to Africa, meaning 108 people can have the opportunity to walk, work and live life to the full again.

Recent statistics show that Britons spend on average £13 billion a year dining out for breakfast. That’s almost £3 billion more than people give to charity (£10.8 billion in 2018).
We’re not asking you to stop eating brunch, that would be barbaric.
What we are asking you to do instead is host your own Bacon&Eggs4Africa Brunch Club. It makes perfect sense – instead of throwing that money at a perfectly sculpted Shakshuka baked by a stranger, why not throw your money at an undercooked Walls Banger, served by a friend.
Charge your mates the average brunch price of £10 for the privilege, invite them over, burn the toast and end up serving them steamed hams from across the road.

Why not sit on your arse for Africa
In 2019 our mate Patrick Pringle raised £330.68 for Legs4Africa by doing absolutely nothing. He just sat on his arse waiting for his broken ankle to heal.
What an inspiration.
So, this year, why not channel your inner Pringle. Get people walking again, by sitting down.
