Wonderful News

In the wake of BT MyDonate closing its doors, we have now setup a new fundraising site for our online donations.

We have joined Wonderful.Org who are commission and service charge free. In fact all 100% of your donations will reach us in tact. They are supported by philanthropic organisations who pay for their running costs.  The site also accepts Gift Aid details so that we can recover that extra 25% from the government.

“Great job” to the folks at Wonderful !

2,000 Mosquito Nets Shipped

We have ordered another 2,000 nets that are now en-route to The Gambia aboard one of the largest container ships out there.  These are due to arrive in early March.

Thank you for all your support in 2018. This shipment could only have happened with your generosity.

Musselburgh Burgh PS Freestyle Mile

This year,  Musselburgh Burgh Primary School ran another outstanding Freestyle Mile event. The children completed their sponsored miles on all forms of wheels and feet, including wheelchairs. They raised a fantastic £1,270 plus gift aid. What a fantastic effort and huge THANK YOU to all the children, parents and teachers involved in the event.

2018 Miles Against Malaria Success !

This year’s efforts notched up 1,340 miles and an awesome £1,500 which was matched by CMS Law making a total raised of £3,000.  Massive thank you to all involved and really looking forward to beating this effort in 2019 with some eye watering goals.

Poverty Relief en-route

Life Seekers International has now dispatched nearly 100kg of clothes and school stationery to our missionary partners in the Gambia.

The clothes are mainly children’s clothes but there are many football team shirts there also. These may potentially be held by a number of local schools to lend to the children on match day and lift the team spirit.

The shipment will enable the missionaries to share the gospel to the children and teachers.

We are looking for more clothes to send,  so if you have clothes or shoes or wellies that no longer get used (and are in decent condition), we would love to send your generous donation to the poor in The Gambia and West Africa.

George Watson’s College Support

At their recent annual charity fund raising event, George Watson’s College raised funds for various charities. Life Seekers International was very blessed to receive £1,000 from their efforts. This will provide over 450 nets which will protect anywhere up to 2,000 children for 6 years.

Thank you so much for your generous support.

Tough Mudder 2018

Another successful journey through the mucky mud of Drumlanrig Castle. 11 Miles and 20+ obstacles made a great event that was well supported. We managed to raise £300 in sponsorships and this was matched by CMS Cameron McKenna Nabarro taking the total to £600.  Thank you for all your efforts and support !

Longniddry Primary School Presentation

Recently, Life Seekers International visited Longniddry Primary School to be a guest at their whole school assembly.  Here we gave an informative message about malaria and also a hands on demonstration of the mosquito nets, which they all enjoyed.

Afterwards, the Primary 6 and Primary 7 classes had classroom chats with us for Q&A and more hands on time with the net. Life Seekers International would like to thank the children and staff of Longniddry Primary School for giving us this opporutnity to come along and be a part of their day. We hope we inspired the children to think beyond their own experiences and whet their appetites for some fundraising in the near future.

Longniddry Primary School donated £250 to the work of Life Seekers International and are looking to continue their support in the new school term by holding a Cycle Skate Skoot event.
