Past Events

  • Footprints Celebration Dinner 2024

    On 21 March we held our very first Footprints Celebration Dinner, an opportunity for our Support Partners, Charity Partners, Volunteers, Patron and Ambassadors to all connect and celebrate the successes of Footprints over the last year, and the difference we have made together. We raised £2,824.28, but the event was about much more than that - we celebrated together, and everyone made new contacts and connections. You can see all of the photos from the event here.

  • Afternoon Pamper & Tea 2024

    Our first event of 2024 was our Afternoon Pamper & Tea on 21 January, held at Burnside Memorial Hall in Plumtree. The event was a huge success, thanks to the number of volunteers and businesses who supported the day, and which brought together some of our families and supporters. We're thrilled that the event raised £1,145.12, and you can see all of the photos here

  • Winter Wonderland Ice Skating 2023

    On 29 December 2023, our families past and present, had a wonderful time at Nottingham's Winter Wonderland, with an exclusive and inclusive ice skating session. Thank you to AC Wollaton for arranging this for us, and you can see all the photos here.

  • Families Christmas Party 2023

    All of our families came together on 9 December for our very special Footprints Christmas Party. Our children and families celebrated with a special visit to see Santa, presents, Makaton Christmas singalong, along with a visit from some superheroes. You can see all of the photos here.

  • Little Footprints Ball 2023

    Wow, what a night we had at the Little Footprints Ball! The event held in November 2023 and organised by our Champion Ambassador Lisa Fox, brought together nearly 300 people, all to support Footprints. The evening had music, dancing, great food and the most amazing auction and raffle prizes, generously donated by an incredible number of businesses. Overall the event raised the most unbelievable amount of £25,147.96! This money will make a huge difference to the children and families we support across the East Midlands, who all live with disabilities.

  • Rutland Night Walk

    In November 2023 we held a new fundraising event for our charity, The Rutland NightWalk. The 10km route around Rutland Water, was beautifully decorated with fairly lights and our team included some of our families, as well as our Charity Manager and Chair of Trustees. The amazing team of walkers raised nearly £700 in total, and not only that, we were thrilled to organise a new type of fundraising event which was inclusive and accessible to all.

  • Robin Hood Marathon 2023

    We're delighted to have raised over £13,000 for our charity at the Robin Hood Marathon 2023! An amazing Footprints team of Half Marathon and Mini Marathon runners, along with volunteers, including official marshalls, completed the famous Robin Hood Marathon on 24 September 2023. Our Patron Richard Whitehead MBE officially started the race and ran with pride in his Footprints Nike running vest. View all the event photos here.

  • Footprints Cup 2023

    We're delighted to confirm that Footprints Cup 2023 raised an amazing £6886.75 for our charity, nearly £200 more than their record! The family day featured football matches, including Education FC Warriors, raffles, prizes, face paint and more! And after attempting an odd socks Guinness world record last year and missing it by a small number, watch this space for next year!

  • Brand new! Tough Mudder 2023

    A team of seven competitors completed Tough Mudder on 25 June 2023, at Belvoir Castle! We were thrilled to have such a wonderful team train for and take on this very muddy challenge, which was also a new fundraising event for our charity. The team all did wonderfully have raised a fantastic amount for us and also helped raise awareness of Footprints, completing the course in our brand new purple fundraising t shirts.

  • CSL Complete The 9 Edges!

    On Saturday 24 June colleagues from one of our Charity Partners, CSL Group, completed the 9 Edges Challenge. They were joined by Karen and Erika from our Education Team and all had a fantastic day, walking 24 miles in total. The event was part of a year long plan of fundraising events, with lots more to come. Find out more here.

  • Run with Rich 2023 Success

    For the second year running, we were thrilled to partner with our Patron's charity, The Richard Whitehead Foundation, for their event Run with Rich on 18 June 2023. A fully inclusive event which brought together so many people and organisations, including some of our families and ones who have grown and left our service.
