Weʼre raising £300 to carry out aid work in Peru

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.
In July 2018 I will be travelling with my school on a month's volunteering trip to Peru. Peru is home to over 31 million people, 6.9 million of which live in poverty. Throughout the course of this four-week trip, I will be assisting the less fortunate to undertake projects in the local area. This can include planting and growing trees to benefit the Amazon rainforest , building greenhouses to enable the children to be educated about the growth and life of plants and vegetables , and constructing or improving buildings such as schools and local homes.
One of the ways I am trying to fundraise some money is by doing a sponsored hair cut. I will be having 12 inches of my hair cut off before I embark on my journey. Once it has been cut off, I am donating my hair to the Little Princess Trust, which is a children's cancer charity. They will then use this to make a wig for a child who has sadly lost their own hair due to the treatment they have received.
All money raised will be used specifically towards the projects I will be involved in. Therefore, any sponsorship/donation you are able to give would be greatly appreciated.
