Weʼre raising £2,000 to To drive from Scotland to Gambia and deliver vehicles to be used by the Gambian fire and rescue service.
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.
To drive from Scotland to Gambia and deliver vehicles to be used by the Gambian fire and rescue service.
The main vehicle will be a road rescue unit, fully kitted out and with full emergency trauma kit.
Due to the number of road traffic accidents and fatalities in Gambia we felt it an appropriate and much required vehicle to donate to the Gambian Fire Rescue service.
we will also be taking other vehicles one of which will be used as a ‘gilli’ gilli’ (local transport) in the Foni and Jarrol area. It will be available as a community bus for outings, football teams etc also to transport medical emergencies to hospital if required. When not being used for community use it will run as a ‘gilli gilli’ to earn some money to cover its on going up keep and driver.
The other vehicles have not been decided yet, but all will have a purpose, even if it is to sell it in Gambia to raise funds for the project.
