We are Pavel and Alex Prokofjevs, two brothers from Kraslava, Latvia. London-based financiers long before "negative interest rates" became dinner party staple, we do our best to stay close to all things Baltic. Here is YOUR opportunity to get involved.

For the 2nd year running (pardon the pun) we are teaming up with Giving for Latvia, a UK registered charity that supports family crisis centres. Numbering a dozen across Latvia, these centres provide temporary shelter to children and women who have suffered from emotional and physical abuse. Last year alone GfL spent in excess of €13,000 purchasing equipment and toys for crisis centres, NGOs that help disadvantaged children and others. Our contribution was 36%...let's hope we beat it this year!

This year 1/3 of all funds raised will be donated, via GfL, to "Drošais Apmetnis" (Safe Cloak in Latvian), a charitable campaign whose objective is the improvement of infrastructure for prematurely born babies in major Latvian cities.

Event details

Torshavn Half-Marathon

This June, we are heading to the Faroe Islands to take part in the Torshavn Half-Marathon. Based around one of the world's smallest capitals (pop. 12,000), the course winds around "the fjord surrounded by waterfalls and lush green hills and mountains", according to the organizers. But wait, this is not your typical summer getaway: the islands receive half the English sunshine but twice its rainfall.

Can't run with you my friends, but can help the cause. You boys run and let those children's dreams fly.
