£420raised of £300 target by 14 supporters

Weʼre raising £300 to Raising money to provide lunches for children on my forthcoming visit to Chidobe School in Zimbabwe. In memory of Alex Ruffell.

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.


My friends son Alex Ruffell left school in 1998 and shortly afterwards contracted Meningitis and sadly died on 30th September 1998 at the age of 16.

His parents, Sue and Graham, with great support from his old school created a fund in his name to support Chidobe Primary School in Zimbabwe.

Over the years Sue and Graham have made regular visits to Chidobe to help support the school and pupils. I visited the school in 2016 with Sue and Graham and with massive help from friends we were able to provide school lunches for all children for a year and a half.

With a nutritious meal provided families were eager to ensure children attended school

My aim is to raise as much money as I can, convert to US $ and open an account with a wholesaler that will provide the food.

Many thanks for reading this.

Kind regards
