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 there! Thanks for visiting my page.

Next year I am very excited to be moving up to Suffolk. I will be living in Felixstowe and volunteering in Ipswich with the charity CYM (Christian Youth Ministries). My work will be varied, but mainly will be centred on supporting chaplains in primary and secondary schools and colleges across Ipswich, helping with small groups, pastoral care, events work, assemblies, mentoring and prayer spaces, along with the African Adventure residential weeks for schools and the Sizewell weekend away for primary school kids. You can read more about this fab charity here:


After being a student, then a volunteer, and now a student again, I don't have that much money. As next year is unwaged, I will be paying for accommodation and food expenses from my savings account plus trying to find some weekend work. My accommodation is £1760 for the year. I would be very grateful for any financial support you can give-every £5 donated will help me pay for a day of rent! Prayers are also very appreciated!

Thank you!
