£1 Million Challenge

The 1MC (£1 Million Challenge) project was launched in 2020 in response to the devastating effects of the COVID-19 Pandemic.  Its main objective was to challenge the community to raise 1 million pound to support and safeguard the ramifications of COVID-19: death, unemployment, business closures, mental health issues, isolation were just a few of the issues faced by the African Community in a sever way.  We know that a million pounds is nowhere near what is required but it is a start.  Unprecedented times called for us to dig-deep and pull together as a community to help each other through fundraising.  Indeed, Thomas Moore raised millions in a short period of time to support the NHS.

Captain Sir Thomas Moore, more popularly known as Captain Tom, was a British Army officer and fundraiser who raised money for charity in the run-up to his 100th birthday during the COVID-19 pandemic.

COVID-19 was a wake up call to many of us, forcing us to rethink and reevaluate how we deal with emergencies and mitigate future risks.  The work of this project is ongoing with a roadmap, plans and strategies put in place to not only achieve its objectives but to exceed them!  Contact us if you would like to assist in any way.

We sponsor groups, collaborate and work with community leaders and groups on our proposals.  Also, see FAQs.
