    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 charity.

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

    Story

    My name is Cameron Emerson, I am a pupil at Bangor Grammar School. In the Summer of 2018 I will be travelling with fellow pupils to Kampala and Gulu in Uganda. The purpose of our expedition is to spend one week doing outreach work with the inner city homeless children of Kampala and another week building a nursery school in the village, this should help give the Ugandan children opportunities similar to those enjoyed by Western children. This a completely self-funded endeavour, in association with ABAANA, a charity based in Bangor, my home town.

    The reason I want to partake in this mission to Uganda is that I see it as an opportunity to build on the work my school has already done and challenge myself to understand the daily hardships of those less fortunate than myself.

    Part of the challenge is that I have to raise the travel and accommodation funds myself in full. The amount I hope to raise here will cover half of my overall cost. I am also carrying out various other fundraising activities in my local community raise the remainder.

    My participation in the scheme can be verified at the school by Mrs Will, Charities Co-ordinator. You can also view a gallery of photos of the last trip at http://www.bangorgrammarschool.org.uk/News/BGS-Abaana-2015/index.asp or visit the ABAANA website for more information about our school’s work in Uganda.
