Weʼre raising £500 to Help send a 4x4 ambulance to Malawi under the partnership of RaksTrust and LoveSupportUnite.
- London, UK
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.
Flight Lieutenant Rakesh Chauhan served in the RAF (2008 - 2014). He didn't return from his third and last tour from Kandahar, Afghanistan. To celebrate his memory and to help those less fortunate, RaksTrust was set-up to raise money for causes close to Rakesh's heart. In 3 years, the charity has raised £18,000 for Derbyshire, Rutland and Leicestershire Air Ambulance Service, and will continue to support this emergency service.
This year RaksTrust is starting a new project to raise funds to send an ambulance to Malawi. RaksTrust has teamed up with LoveSupportUnite - a grass roots charity in Malawi, supporting local communities as well as running an orphanage and mobile health clinic. The ambulance will be an ex-military 4x4 fully kitted out and will cost approximately £20,000 as well as an annual running cost of £600 for the life of the vehicle.
Our challenge this year is a 12-mile circular route around part of Brecon Beacons National Park, including Wales’ highest peak Pen-Y-Fan or the Fan Dance., used by the SAS for their selection and training sessions.
Thank you for visiting our JustGiving page, we really appreciate your support and any donations.
Single Malt Whisky by RAF family:
Rakesh loved a good single malt! In memory of this we have had made a unique bottle of 18yr single malt which is now available to purchase.
The bottles are £40 (+ £6.95 postage) each and come with a bespoke wooden case engraved with the trust logo. Thank you once again for all your support.
