Polly’s Fund, which supports Polly’s Challenge, was set up thanks to the family and friends of Polly Birch. Polly was a much-loved vet, sailor, mum, wife, sister, daughter and friend. Above all Polly loved adventure and wanted to encourage other people to go out and experience the world.
Polly’s Fund supports opportunities for Island Children aged 10-14years during the school holidays. Five action pack days help build confidence and a sense of adventure.
Each year Polly’s friends, and family come together to raise funds, In 2020 Polly’s Day went virtual and with the help of its own website, ensured there were challenges to suit all ages and abilities to continue the fundraising fun. This year Polly’s friends and family raised over a whopping £35,000!
