2022 is Born Free's 'Year of the Lion'

A year of action for lions in honour of the 100th birthday year of our charity’s fearless founder and lionheart, Bill Travers MBE. If you crave a new experience or want to push yourself to the limit, then why not undertake a Born Free challenge during 2022?

You can support Born Free by taking part in one of our fundraising challenges and raising money for wildlife around the world.


Join Born Free's Patron Sally Gunnell OBE for a roarsome challenge in 2022!

We are delighted to announce that our new Patron Sally Gunnell OBE will be joining our Mount Kenya 'Climb for Conservation' challenge in October 2022! 

Sally, who won Olympic Gold in the 400 metre hurdles, in 1992, is sure to provide plenty of inspiration for the group, as they tackle Africa's second highest peak together.There's still time to sign up! Please see full details below.

Mountains not your style? You can still put your best foot forward for Born Free, by taking part in our Tiger 5K in July, or even signing-up for the TCS London Marathon in October. See details of both running events here.

You might also have other ideas about a fundraising challenge during the year. Check out our fundraisers for inspiration, and please contact Joanne Bartholomew if you would like more information about fundraising opportunities in 2022.



Join Born Free and climb Africa’s second highest mountain, Mount Kenya. You’ll also get to visit the inspiring conservation projects we’re fundraising for. This is a unique experience for fundraising expeditions like this, and we are really excited to be able to offer it to you.
