2024 Fundraising Events

Want to help people facing poverty and homelessness? Do you want to set yourself a fitness challenge for a good cause? Why not participate in one of the events below!

London Legal Walk

Join or sponsor us to support free access to justice

On Tuesday 18th June 2024, Z2K staff, volunteers and supporters will participate in the London Legal Support Trust’s (LLST) London Legal Walk – a disability friendly 10K walk through Central London to raise money for free legal advice organisations like Z2K.

Ending with a street party with loads of food and music, the event brings together over 10,000 walkers including judiciary members, barristers, students, advice agencies, and solicitors. To walk with team Z2K, please contact our fundraising team here.

Why do we walk?

At Z2K we have an 91% success rate for tribunal appeals but the figure is much lower for those not fortunate enough to have representation.

By offering these services for free, we’re able to give more people the opportunity to access justice.

All funds raised through our page will be donated to Z2K (via the LLST) and we’ll also receive a grant from LLST from the event’s fundraised income, so your support can make a huge difference! 

If you’re able, please consider sponsoring our efforts by clicking here.

The London 10K

#10kForZ2K

Lace up your trainers for this 10K race on Sunday 14th July 2024 through central London, venturing alongside the river Thames past iconic landmarks like Big Ben and Westminster Bridge.  

Please register your interest by 17th May to be one of our five fitness fundraisers! We ask everyone to commit to a £300 fundraising target to help us continue our vital work.

By committing to a £300 fundraising target you will help us continue to be a lifeline for individuals in London on low incomes struggling to access the support they’re entitled to. Z2K spends 94p in every £1 on charitable activities, meaning your contributions directly impact clients in need of support.

We are 100% reliant on fundraising to ensure we can sustain our services and campaigning activities so if you would like to fundraise on behalf of Z2K, why not ask your organisation if they’ll match fund (aka double) your contributions? It’s a great way to make your fundraising efforts have the biggest impact!

Help us fight poverty.

Taking on the #10KforZ2K challenge or know someone that might want to take part? Why not shout about it!

Why fundraise for Z2K?

For every £1 we raise, we spend 94p on providing our free services

£5 could answer the phone to someone who needs advice or advocacy

£10 could support our policy and campaigns work to create systemic change

£20 could provide representation for someone at Tribunal when they are wrongfully denied disability benefits

£50 could help provide emergency food shopping for a family struggling with the cost-of-living rises

More than 1 in 4 people in the UK live in poverty, including almost 50% of low-income households receiving Universal Credit.

The rising cost of living is affecting us all, but it isn’t felt equally. More and more people are facing poverty and destitution and are in urgent need of our support. We help the most marginalised Londoners secure their welfare rights and entitlements so they can live stable and dignified lives. In 2023 our caseworkers provided in-depth advice, representation, and advocacy to 1,169 people. See our full impact in 2023 here.

We are 100% reliant on fundraising to ensure we can sustain our services and campaigning activities, so if you want to support us to continue fighting poverty consider fundraising for Z2K! You can choose how you want to help, and we’ll support you all the way.

“Before I met my caseworker, I had no idea about welfare benefits or how they were applied to people like me. I was living on pennies trying to scrape by. A chance call to Z2K has transformed my entire life... I now feel I have a future in society.”
