Why we’re working together

Unicef is the chosen Charity Partner for the 2019-20 Race Edition. Unicef has been the Charity Partner since the 2015–16 edition and through our partnership with the Clipper Race we have raised over £900,000 to date. We hope to pass the £1m mark during this Race Edition.

The Clipper Race challenges people from all walks of life and around the world to come together to work as a team, in a true test of their ability, bravery, and courage. The global sailing event also helps Unicef to support the world’s most vulnerable children to overcome the challenges they face around the world such as hunger, disease, poverty and disasters.

What we’re doing

As our work with the Clipper Race continues to grow, we are raising vital funds so children can live in a safe, happy and healthy environment. We have developed a strong partnership with the Clipper Race over the years, and are immensely excited to be a Team Partner once again. With the Clipper Race Crew’s help, Unicef can help make sure children all over the world get the support they need to grow up happy and healthy.

During the Cape Town stopover in this race edition, a group of 20 crew from across the fleet had the opportunity to visit an example of the type of support that Unicef provides for children. The Isibindi Safe Park in Cape Town, South Africa, is a place where children from the local community can come to learn, play, get a good meal and the support they need in a safe space.

It is a programme that has been developed by the National Association of Child Care Workers (NACCW) and endorsed by the government in response to the needs of vulnerable families in South Africa.

If you have any questions about fundraising for Unicef during the Clipper Race, please email us at [email protected] or call our Supporter Care team on 0300 330 5580

We talk about charity, and so much of the time you wonder about where your money goes and if it’s a drop in a bucket and if it makes the differences that you are hoping for. This is an example of the tremendous differences that continue on, multiplying five fold, far beyond what you thought it would do - and it’s sustainable.
