LATA Foundation virtual quiz raises £577 for emergency Covid-19 appeal

A huge thank you to everyone who joined out first LATA Foundation virtual pub quiz last night. We were delighted to see a whole array of colourful Latin-American themed fancy dress and a great competitive spirit.

A big congratulations to the Locked Down Llamas for securing the top spot, following a tie-break question against Healing Venezuela (both teams finished with 35 points) followed by LOTUS LATAMITES (31 points) and then the Wanderlust Wanderers (28.5 points). Many thanks also to Wines of Chile for providing a prize for the winning team.

We are delighted that the event raised £577 for our emergency Covid-19 appeal which has been set up to support those most in need in Latin America given the impact of the pandemic.

We would of course welcome any last-minute donations. Details of the Covid-19 appeal are available via www.latafoundation.org with more project information to be announced soon.


New LATA Foundation Covid-19 logo created for industry partners to support our emergency appeal

Despite challenging times, we need to keep fundraising.  Now more then ever, urgent support is needed.

To help us raise awareness of our emergency Covid-19 appeal, we have created a logo for our partners and supporters to use freely. This logo can be downloaded here and linking to our fundraising page: http://www.latafoundation.org/covid19

We would ask our partners to consider using this logo in their communications (signatures, websites, newsletters etc) with a simple text and hyperlink such as;

“We support the LATA Foundation’s Covid-19 appeal. Click on the below logo for more information or to donate.”

Thank you for considering to support the LATA Foundation with this initiative.


OTHER FUNDRAISING INITIATIVES

We would like to take this opportunity to thank Journey Latin America for collectively walking the equivalent length of Latin America to raise a whopping £1760 for the LATA Foundation.

We would invite you to join us in our fundraising efforts for people desperately in need across Latin America during the Covid-19 Pandemic. Either as individuals or in your companies.

Below are a few other fundraising ideas to consider:

  • Swimming, walking or running challenge
  • A race to complete the equivalent of the Inca Trail, W Trek etc
  • Virtual cocktail making, cooking, baking
  • Virtual yoga classes

The only limit is your imagination and its a great way to bring your team together. Please contact fundraising@latafoundation.org for more help and ideas.
