DONT WALK was founded in 2001 in the wake of 9/11 as a means for students at the University of St Andrews to help those closely affected by the disaster. Initially known for Kate Middleton’s participation as a model and Prince William’s as an attendee, DONT WALK is now known as the largest charity fashion show in the UK, having raised over £240,000 and partnered with a number of corporate, fashion, and charitable organisations.
On behalf of the DONT WALK committee, we thank each and every one of our sponsors for their unwavering generosity and support throughout our fundraising efforts for the many charities we have raised for. Our ability to grow and evolve from a student event celebrating fashion, art and music to a platform focusing on international charitable awareness is a testament to the encouragement and endorsement of our partners. Your support, be it a financial, product or service donation not only enhanced the quality and impact of our event, but more importantly, contributed towards improving the livelihood of many around the world.
We thank you for your enthusiasm, your energy and your generosity that surrounded us throughout our annual process and efforts. We look forward to collaborating with you again this year, and onwards. Our successes are your successes, and with that, we thank you.
