Drapers’ Hall


Events are a great way of raising funds for Rafiki Thabo Foundation – we organise our own but also encourage our supporters to do so too!

We – and our supporters – have run so many amazing fundraising events over the years, including our inaugural gala dinner in 2018, the Rafiki Thabo Cook Off in 2020, the Rafiki Relay in 2021, several clothes swaps and pampering and shopping evenings, children’s activities at local fetes etc. Read more about some of our events below. We also have a dedicated events website.

Celebration Dinner

Join us for an evening of celebrations, dinner and art at Cokethorpe School, Oxfordshire. On Friday 19th November we are celebrating our wonderful supporters who enabled us to continue our work despite the challenges of the pandemic. Hear from our trustees Jon and Andy as they share highlights and unveil our new film! Meet our new patron, the inspirational Harry Baker, England Cerebral Palsy footballer, and enjoy stunning paintings and a talk by Jeremy Houghton, Artist in Residence to Windsor Castle for Her Majesty the Queen!

Relay for Education

Wow, what an amazing Rafiki Relay we had! More than 2,000 pairs of feet, £16,223 raised and a whopping 103,791km cycled, walked, run or swum over 6 weeks in spring 2021! We finished Cairo to Cape Town in only 6 days, so went on to conquer the coastline of Africa, the Equator and returned to Cairo before the 6 weeks were up!
