£1,134raised of £1,500 target by 31 supporters

    Weʼve raised £1,134 to kit out and bless the children of New Life Centre in the Gambia, with the basic products needed to maintain their personal hygiene & health.

    Funded on Tuesday, 24th January 2017

    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.


    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)
    -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!!!

      Since Kate Leah and Amy went out to The Gambia with the New Life Children's Centre's charity earlier this year they have felt a burning desire to go back out and do more to help the amazing children they met.
