Dunwich Ultra Marathon supporting Africa Vision
We did it

Please help me to raise money for African Vision empowering sustainable farming, education and improvements to health in Malawi.


Started on 11th August 2021 Fen Bank, Isleham, Ely CB7 5SL, UK

I am running to feed not only my ego, but a cause very close to my heart having worked in Africa for more than 10 years I want to start and help give back to a continent that has been very good to me.

Malawi is one of the poorest countries in the world, 11% of children die before reaching their 5th birthday and 50% of under 5's deaths are due to Malaria.

African Vision Malawi runs a self-sustaining training village called Sam's Village, built on a 17-acre site. The objective is to support a move away from hand-outs and to train thousands of local people out of poverty. 

They also have 12 centres supporting the under-5's and support pupils in Primary, Secondary and Further Education, typically 40 secondary and 20 university students at any given time.

Please help me to empower the next generation of Malawi people through positive change and direct action.
