Fast for Concern in 2018

Sign up below to register for Concern Fast on Thursday 22 November!

 What is the Concern Fast?

Concern Fast is about giving up food for 24 hours, or choosing your own personal 24-hour challenge, and raising as much money as possible to support our work tackling hunger with the most vulnerable people in the world’s poorest places. The official date of the Fast is Thursday 22 November, but you can Fast and fundraise whenever suits you.

In just one day you can make a lifetime of difference. 

Who can take part in the Concern Fast?

You can take part in the Concern Fast yourself, with your school or in the workplace. Register via the form below.

How much do I need to raise?

There’s no target- just raise as much as you can! Setting up a Justgiving page is a great place to start, or our fundraising team can supply you with a sponsor form to take to your friends and family.

Layru (25) and Hala (F - 2yrs) at Concern Worldwide's Nutrition Support Centre at Hakim Para camp in Cox's Bazar, Bangladesh

When two-year-old Hala first arrived at a Concern-supported nutrition centre, she was dangerously malnourished. Her family had fled violence in Myanmar and walked for 15 long, dangerous and hungry days to reach safety in Bangladesh. They urgently needed help. And thanks to the generosity of Concern Fasters like you, we were able to provide the family with the food that helped them survive. Thank you!


Can I get my school involved?

You can! We can provide fundraising materials and support if you’d like your school to raise funds through the Concern Fast. Alternatively, post-primary schools are able to sign up to our Fast Youth Ambassador Programme for pupils aged 16-18.

What is the Fast Youth Ambassador Programme for schools?

This is a great opportunity for pupils aged 16-18 with a keen interest in global development. Fast Youth Ambassadors will be trained by Concern staff to represent Concern in their school and community, and given guidance on how to champion their schools fundraising efforts. Pupils will gain valuable voluntary experience to enhance their UCAS application and CV.
