    Funded on Tuesday, 26th September 2017

    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.


    Hi! Next summer, after I have completed my GCSE exams, I will be going to Tanzania with Camps International. This is a four week school expedition with Samuel Whitbread Academy. Alongside supporting my personal development, I will make an impact on:

    - school and housing - to build and renovate school buildings, accommodation and community facilities. I will be laying bricks, platstering, painting and building furniture.

    - conservation - to improve natural waterholes and safeguard the future of African wildlife.

    - education - I will take part in educational workshops with local children and assist them to monitor the wildlife.

    I am travelling in July 2018 and am raising funds to support these activities. On September 3rd 2017, I am doing the Letchworth Duck and Dash - running 5km and swimming 400m to raise funds for the trip and voluntary work.

    I hope that you will feel able to support my work in Tanzania. I am very grateful for any support and will keep you posted on progress and my work next summer. Thank you.

      Thank you so much for your support. I completed the Letchworth Duck and Dash Aquathon in 39:35 minutes. You have enabled me to make a great start to my fundraising for volunteering in Tanzania next summer - thanks once again.
