Virgin Atlantic vs British Airways

Virgin Atlantic vs British Airways
We did it
On 16th November 2022 we successfully raised £2,543 with 52 supporters in 14 days

Virgin Atlantic are taking on British Airways in the age-old game of Football to raise money for the Pakistan floods.

Project by Virgin Atlantic Foundation


Started on 2nd November 2022 Horsham RH13 0AR, UK

At Virgin Atlantic, we are deeply saddened by the devastation that is impacting the lives of so many children and families in Pakistan. Our purpose is to empower everyone to take on the world, so we’re raising money to donate to the Pakistan flood appeal through our charity partner UK for UNHCR, the UN Refugee Agency.

For the first time ever, Virgin Atlantic will take to the football pitch against rival airline British Airways. 50% of proceeds donated via Virgin Atlantic will go to UK for UNHCR’s Pakistan floods appeals and 50% of proceeds will go to The Smallpeice Trust, Speakers for Schools, and UK for UNHCR through the Virgin Atlantic Foundation. Virgin Atlantic partners with these charities to deliver their flagship community programme, Passport to Change, which aims to end educational inequality and increase engagement in STEM subjects.

Calling all football fans, entry is free of charge so please come and support. All spectators are encouraged to make a donation to these incredible causes.

The match will start at 20:00 on Friday the 18th of November, with doors opening at 19:00. Please come down to support the match, all donations are greatly appreciated and will make a huge difference to those in Pakistan.

On behalf of all involved, a very big thank you for supporting such an important cause.

The match is at Horsham Football Club, The Camping World Community Stadium, Worthing Road, West Sussex RH13 0AX.
