    Story

    Hi, I have signed up with Camps International to go on a four week expedition in Ecuador in the summer of 2020, to help with their community and environmental projects.

    As part of my fund raising I will be running a half marathon with my dad, on 28th March 2020, at Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park in London. My aim is to raise £500 to help fund my trip. And if I beat my dad to the finish line, then he promises to get me a £50 bonus!

    In Ecuador, 50% of rural areas are below the poverty line and only 30% of children receive an education. Lack of education together with poor growing conditions has resulted in large cases of chronic malnutrition in the highlands. On a huge scale, deforestation iin the amazon rainforest is contributing to global warming.

    Through my expedition, I will be supporting the work of Camps International in the local community. The types of things I will be involved with will include:

    - planting and nursing trees in the amazon rainforest which will bring income to the locals that need it from the selling of saplings.

    - building seed and vegtable greenhouses that will help children learn about nutrition.

    - build kitches and dinning rooms in schools

    - build toilets in local homes to improve health and hygenic problems.

    I really appreciate your support. Thanks, Alfie Bigg

      Hi, Unfortunately, I've heard this week that school have cancelled my Camps International trip to Ecuador. I appreciate that you sponsored me recently when I ran a half marathon to raise funds for this. Please let me know if you would like a refund and I will organise this. Alternatively, I will put the funds towards my future travel adventures and I will make a donation to the charity, NHS Charities Together. I really appreciate all the support you have given me. Alfie
