Uganda visit 2006





Angela Peake began fundraising by collecting outside a local Penzance supermarket and selling plants, books and bric-a-brac at carboot sales. This is continuing, with the help of a few other people.

This progressed to sponsored swims and a sponsored walk, and toy sales raised some money. £3,000 was raised in 2004 through various activities in local schools, and contributions were received from Cornish churches and chapels.

Since then we have raised -


This makes a total of £424,621

(note: our financial year ends on 6th September)

Cream Tea in Scarborough


Val Humphreys wrote -

On 12th July I held my annual Strawberry and Cream Tea to raise funds for ACE, in my daughter Katharine's garden. In spite of having to postpone it the previous day because of adverse weather conditions, we made a total of 422.60.

This year we had a group of young mothers and their children who came to support us, as picture shows.


I have divided the profits between ACE and towards the Fees for Denis at the Kampala International University. Denis will be starting on his very last Semester (year 6..1 ) on 4th September and will become a Graduate Doctor at the end of February 2018.

He constantly expresses how grateful he is to ACE and myself for giving him this opportunity to have a career in medicine.

Supermarket Collection

ACE collectors were at Morrisons supermarket on 14th and 15th July and £204 was donated.


Pam Furby has raffled one of her paintings and raised £60.

Strongwomen4strongwomen events

Strong Women 4 Strong Women is a new initiative encouraging women across London to join together in the support of women facing adversity everywhere.

Across the UK and around the world, women are working to overcome barriers to equality; whether economic, political, social or otherwise. In recognition of this hardship and out of respect for their strength, they are calling on the women of London to challenge their physical and mental strength.

On the 10th June 2017 the very first Strong Women 4 Strong Women Bootcamp took place. The bootcamps were held in 5 locations across the capital.

All the money raised goes towards funding projects focused on making a positive change to the lives of women in need. For their first event they chose to support ACE and they raised £930.

We are very grateful to them.
