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.

I enjoy doing voluntary work and making a difference in society. Having the ability to help those less fortunate than ourselves and hopefully being able to provide a sense of hope for families and individuals is what motivates me in wanting to do this. From a very young age, I have always been interested in helping others making a positive impact to lives.
I will be undertaking a few challenges in the coming months in order to raise as much money as possible for great causes. Details of the challenges are below:
Challenge 1: I have decided to take part in the Jurassic Coast walking Challenge on Sat 21st July 2018. The distance is 24km minimum - starting from Poole. For those that know me well will know that I am not exactly a keen walker - but despite the recent hot weather, I have been training for this intense physical challenge. UPDATE: I managed to exceed my target and ended up walking 42km (26 miles - a marathon!). Blister plasters and bandages definitely helped me get through this tough challenge!
Challenge 2: Trekking to EVEREST Base Camp!
In October 2018, I will be heading to Nepal. During this time, I will be challenging myself (probably the craziest idea I have had to date, I know!) to complete this 12 - 15 days hike. If I manage to survive the most iconic trek (one for the bucket list!) - with all the altitude sickness and lack of oxygen at 5500+ meters (feels scary just thinking about it), I intend to do some voluntary work out there. This is where you all come in :) Your donations will support me through the gruelling challenge itself and the training that faces me in the weeks prior to my departure (less than 4 weeks to go now...). Nepal is one of the world’s poorest nations. In 2015, Nepal was hit by an earthquake which has left devastating impacts to the lives of locals. I am hoping to reach out to the people affected and make a positive impact. This includes (but not limited to) providing hampers and other essential items.
Within the UK, part of the funds raised will be used in supporting a local homeless charity by providing hampers over the winter period.
Please help and support me in this challenge by donating whatever you can - no matter how small - as every pound will help continue my efforts and passion in making a difference to the lives of others and those less fortunate.

Thanking you in advance for your donation and continued support.
