£258raised of £3,000 target by 12 supporters

Weʼre raising £3,000 to fund a World Challenge expedition to Swaziland.

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 nonprofit.

The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.


In the summer of 2020, I will be taking part in a World Challenge expedition to Swaziland, where I will be working on projects with local communities, focusing on five key areas: education; sustainable livelihoods; conservation; water, health and sanitation; and welfare and housing.

Through our efforts, we hope to improve the lives of everyone in those communities, particularly the young children.

In the months between now and then, I'll be organising, and taking part in, lots of other fundraising activities (so expect me to be knocking on your door and popping up in your time line every now and then!). But if you just fancy making a donation, you can always do so here.

Thanks everyone!

    Thank you to every singe one of you who has helped me in raising money for my Swaziland trip in 2 years, both on here and else where. On the 29th of December I completed a long distance swim where I was hoping to swim 3 miles in 2 hours. Unfortunately I didn’t reach that target, as I managed 2 and 3/4 miles. But thank you to everyone who sponsored me. I’m hoping to do similar events over the next 2 years. For example sponsored runs and car washed so any donations towards that would be greatly approated. Once again thank you so much to everyone

    On the 16th of December, one of my waterpolo team-mates and I are taking part in a sponsored swim. We've challenged ourselves to swim as far as we can in two hours (I'm aiming for three miles!). We're really going to push ourselves and it's all for a good cause. So any donations you'd like to make would be very much appreciated. Also, if you're still looking for Christmas cards, I'm selling my hand-made 'thumb-print' designs in packs of 5 for £1.50, so let me know! Thanks everyone! Barney
