Weʼve raised £660 to LightHouse Relief
- Funded on Thursday, 9th August 2018
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.
On Saturday 28th July, I'll be swimming a 5km in the Thames and I thought to push myself harder for a good cause.The race starts in Royal Victoria Dock and takes you through Royal Albert Dock and back into Royal Victoria Dock.
I am supporting Lighthouse Relief NGO work in Lesvos island ! I have not worked directly with this NGO, but my cousin went there and spend a couple of months with them and can testify how serious and vital their work is. There is a critical need to fund their actions.
Lighthouse Relief NGO operates on the front line of the ongoing refugee crisis, working around-the-clock spotting shifts to assist boats in danger, with emergency teams responding to all North Shore landings.
By helping me hit my £500 target, you can make a really significant difference and support specific actions such as:
£18 - facilitates a specialised creative or skill-building workshop in one of our spaces in Ritsona refugee camp
£45 - resources to launch a new edition of the youth-led magazine "Ritsona Kingdom Journal"
£69 - allows us to provide emergency humanitarian aid for new arrivals in Lesvos for one day
£99 - supports us in the hiring and training new staff across our programming
£148 - Equipment package to engage children through positive play
£381 - covers the cost of transportation for emergency and spotting operations in Lesvos for two weeks
If the flow of refugees has reduced since 2015, they still arrive every day on the Greek shores, and Lighthouse Relief work is still very relevant.
Help me supporting the valuable work of Lighthouse Relief NGO through this page.

Thank you all for supporting me, it made such a difference to know you were all behind me! The race is now completed, the first 2.5km went quite well but the second half has been (very) TOUGH, there was heavy wind on the way back and although there is no tide in the Thames, it felt like it! I did not improve my time as much as I wished for, completed the race is 1h48min but was delighted by my ranking - 55th out of 142! And as promised to a few a you - no wetsuit :D And picture at the finish.. thank you all again.
