Weʼre raising £1,500 to go towards playing and training kit for the 2019 Barbados Cricket and Hockey Tour.
Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered nonprofit.
The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.
This July a squad of 21 HGS pupils will be visiting Barbados to not only experience the amazing culture, food and sunny beaches but more importantly to challenge themselves in highly competitive cricket and hockey fixtures. This biannual tour is a regular on the school calendar and has produced some excellent results to date.
This year, to assist with fundraising for primarily tour training and playing kit, the tour party have decided to cycle the distance from Folkestone (where we are based) to our apartments in Barbados. The entire tour party, including 3 staff members, will be cycling a combined total of 4253 miles on spinning bikes within the school fitness studio in order to raise as much money as possible. This will be completed in stages over the course of 10 days due to important exam commitments for the pupils but each participant should cover at least 177 miles within that period as a minimum.
