Weʼre raising £2,800 to help fund an international nursing placement in Sri Lanka

Brighton, East Sussex

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.


I am a mature second year nursing student at the University of Brighton in Falmer. As part of our studies, an international placement has been organised and I have been successful in obtaining a two-week nursing placement in Sri Lanka later this year. It is a privileged opportunity to enhance my learning; understand cultural differences; and experience working in a low resource environment, particularly, the impact it has on patient care and how it is managed.

As a single parent, working a part time job alongside my university studies, I am not in a financial position to afford the full cost single-handedly. I have been fundraising to achieve my goal - so far I have proudly raised £900 through table top sales and raffles!! I have a long way to go and therefore need your help.... Anything that you are able to contribute, however large or small, would be hugely appreciated. Thank you x

    Wow. I am overwhelmed by each and everyone of you that has contributed online or offline; for your beautiful messages and snippets of advice; for your love and support (and page “shares”!). My total left to raise is now only £1000! Thank you so very much, it means the absolute world to me and takes me a step closer to gaining some invaluable global learning within ICU and the Emergency and Oncology departments. Any donations in excess of this amount will go to the St Peter & St James Hospice x

    I cannot imagine a person more deserving than Caroline for this wonderful opportunity. She is a wonderful, caring nurse and she so deserves this.
