The pandemic has created pain for lots of people in different ways, so the CEDR community would like to come together to give something back to our wider society and raise money to help alleviate food poverty. Our aim is to raise £10,000 for the following charities:

  • In the UK - the food bank charity -
  • Internationally – UNICEF -

Over 30 years, we have seen the positive impact of letting people tell ‘their story’ in the resolution of conflict and the positive impact it has had on the disputants, organisations and individuals. So, what better way to raise money for the charities above than by having a 24-hour story-a-thon, where our staff, mediators, trainers, clients and friends worldwide get to share these stories and experiences all while raising money for these good causes.


9am September 16th (UK Time) to 9am September 17th


The Zoom link ran for 24 hours with 24 different themed conversations. 

Donations are encouraged via the following pages:

Trussell Trust



It is open to all who want to hear or tell their stories. All we ask is for a donation to our fundraising
