Get Involved

Whether you’re running across the UK, aiming for a hole in one alongside Kevin Keegan and Kriss Akabusi, standing at the top of Kilimanjaro or dancing the night away at a COCO Ball, there are plenty of ways for you to get involved and support COCO.

COCO aim to tackle the barriers that prevent children from accessing education- there is serious work to be done but we also believe that fundraising should be FUN! There are a great choice of organised events, projects and challenges but we are always open to new ideas; it is your input and involvement that keeps us going, and it is your hard work and dedication that changes the lives of so many children.

Join the COCO team as we embark on Kilimanjaro treks, Cycle Challenges, Golf Days, the Great North Run and much much more.

Supporting COCO doesn't have to be through fundraising, you can make a difference through volunteering, donating gifts for raffles, donating your expertise or helping to organise an event in your workplace. However you decide to support us, we want you as part of our team and together we can transform the lives of children through education.

There are so many ways for you to give your support to COCO!
