Weʼre raising £1,000 to Support the communities of Tanzania and Liverpool’s Young Person’s Advisory Service - YPAS! Promoting positive Mental Health & Well-being!
- Tanzania, Africa
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.
So as lots of you know, Lee and I were fortunate to self fund a trip to Malawi back in 2016. It was one of the best experiences of my life and something I am incredibly proud of.
Ever since, Lee and I have wanted to return to Africa.
SO WE HAVE BOOKED OUR NEXT VENTURE!
We will be challenging ourselves to trek up Africa's highest peak, Mt KILIMANJARO. It stands at 5895metres in the sky! Requiring 5 days of walking to potentially reach the summit!
SO WHY ARE WE CHALLENGING OURSELVES?
Mental health is something that is important and close to heart for both of us. We are challenging ourselves in order to raise money for two fantastic charities that support adult and children's mental health.
YPAS is a charitable organisation based in Liverpool. They offer support and therapeutic services to children, young people and their families.
YPAS wants to REDUCE STIGMA around mental health and promote well-being.
FACE OUR FEARS
Yes we will be fortunate to travel to Africa again, Yes will make memories. However it will be no easy task, it will be tough to prepare for but we are ready to give it 100%
The risks are huge but the rewards of watching the sun rise over the clouds on summit day will be AMAZING!
5 day climb to summit.
2 day decent.
5 days in the village of Moshi, visiting school's and orphanages
Travel back to the UK and share our memories!
All funds raised between this page, Lee's page and our fund raising events will be shared equally between:
* YPAS : http://www.ypas.org.uk/
* CALM - Campaign against men living miserably: https://www.thecalmzone.net/
* The communities of Africa including orphanages and the porters. Our porters will get a generous donation as they are the heart and soul of the trip, without their strength and motivation no one would make the summit!
(10% of the overall raised will go towards funding the trip.)
Every ££ helps and will be greatly appreciated.
Thank-you <3 :)
