Weʼre raising £400 to Run the Rome Marathon in support of The Romsey School's charitable work building schools and teaching children in Nakuru, Kenya
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.
On 7th April, I will be competing in the Rome Marathon. I have decided to do this in part to challenge myself, but also to fundraise for two charities. The first is my school’s Romsey2Kenya Project and the second is for the Jon Egging Trust. To find out more about the Romsey2Kenya Project, please read on. If you'd like to give to my other charity, the Jon Egging Trust, please visit my other fundraising page.
The Romsey2Kenya Project has seen students and staff from the Romsey School supporting community project volunteering work in Nakuru, Kenya for nearly a decade. You can read about the adventures the students and staff have had on the Romsey2Kenya Facebook Page #Romsey2Kenya. It has been a life changing project for all involved and really helps the young people we take see what a difference their hard work can make to others that are not as fortunate as them, purely because of where they have been born. The team that visits will take part in building work and teaching children in the local schools within Nakuru. Our students also get to experience Kenyan culture first hand and are able to take part in local Kenyan traditions that allow them to see how those with few material possessions really enjoy their lives and have fun with each other, despite their hardship and poverty.
Over time my school community has benefited from the friendships it has created as a consequence of these Kenyan adventures. As a school community we are keen to continue this support and I am planning on volunteering with the project for the 2020 Romsey2Kenya Project.
