Crowdfunding is the new way to raise money for a personal cause on JustGiving.

Story

New Life Children's Centre is an amazing charity who support and sponsor local children in The Gambia, to have the opportunity of a quality education.
During our visit in May 2016 it was evident that personal hygiene and basic sanitary needs was an area that needed further development and aid. Since this trip it has been on our hearts to make a change.

We are planning to return to The Gambia in February 2017 to implement this change by running educational workshops for the children and donating basic supplies.

This is where we need you.

To make our plans become a reality we are aiming to raise £1500 by walking a marathon around London... yes that is 26 miles!! This challenge will be happening on the 26th November 2016.

We would love you to join us in supporting the children of New Life Centre by donating to our cause. ALL the money we raise will specifically (and only) go towards buying the supplies needed:
-Underwear (vests, bras, knickers and pants)
-Sanitary towels (washable)
-Soap
-Spectacles
-Sewing kits
-Printed educational posters (hygiene related)

Our workshops will cover;
-Hand Hygiene
-Eye testing
-Girl's personal hygiene

If you have any experience or ideas in which you feel may benefit our workshops, we would love to hear from you!!!
