Other Bright Ideas

Can’t run? You can walk. Can’t cycle? You can swim. There are as many ways to raise money through sports activities as there are sports. Here are a few enthusiastic Pratham UK supporters who have done unusual and intrepid things to challenge themselves and raise money for Pratham. From driving all the way to India to climbing three peaks to simply celebrating a birthday, we have some inspiring stories. Remember, though, you can write your own.
