Why is this event so important to Z2K? Simple, we are a small charity that relies on fundraising to survive. We receive no government funding which allows us to amplify our client’s voice through our campaigning and policy work. We want to continue to support people with their income and housing to ensure we can prevent homelessness wherever possible.

If you would like to fundraise for Z2K, or want to know more about our work fighting poverty, please email our Fundraising Manager today on

If you are unable to attend the match, but would like to donate to Z2K, please click here.
