Weʼve raised £205 to help provide books to support a school trip to Poland.

Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered nonprofit.
The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.
Each year, I take students from JCSC to visit Krakow, Poland in July. Although students learn about the Holocaust in Year 9, reading survivor testimonies is an invaluable opportunity to further develop their knowledge and understanding of the sites they will visit.
The trip itself is very expensive and this year I thought it would be a great idea if we could give each of the students a testimony to read prior to the visit.
Unfortunately, school funding is at an all time low and there’s no money left to buy these books. This year we’re taking 36 Year 9 students - our largest group yet! I would love to surprise them with a small gift to help them understand the tragedies experienced by so many, and to lift their spirits with the inspirational nature of survivors.

What a fantastic opportunity for the children of our community, learning is most exciting when your immersed in the surroundings of the subject, trips far and near do just that.

I did this trip a couple of years ago with Ashleigh. Without doubt, a never to be forgotten experience.

Great idea. People should remember how damaging it can be if we give too much power to one man.
