    What is crowdfunding?

    Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.

    The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.


    We (Ben and Rhys) will be cycling the length of The Gambia (338KM) on the 15th November. We will each be doing 169KM simultaneously. 169KM is the equivalent of your average Tour de France stage.

    We will be raising money for development projects in Gambian villages.

    Beacon Academy has been visiting The Gambia with students for over 20 years. We will visit each of the villages that we work with listening to what funding they require, what they would use that funding for and how they are going to best use the funds. The students will then debate how we distribute the money that we have raised between the villages.

    Unlike international charities which have overhead costs all students will meet their own travel and personal costs. This means that every single penny you donate will be used to help someone in The Gambia.

    Thank you for reading and please donate to this fantastic cause!
