Weʼre raising £5,000 to raise money for the next episode of City Kids Surfing - following the super film from Volvo, we need to get the next group into the sea!
- London, UK
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.
With our mission to help children from the UK’s cities become future guardians of the world’s oceans, we aim to take groups of young children and educate them about the ocean and all it's wonders as well as dangers before travelling from south London to the Cornish coast to surf!
As well as feeling the power of the water whilst learning to ride waves, they are also given lessons in its fragility. They collect plastic waste that’s washed up on the beaches and are taught about the impact this has on the delicate ecosystems in and around the planet’s oceans.
We, who are fellow Oceaneers and educators in South London, developed his ocean education programme after realising the future health of the seas lies in the hands of kids who may not have experienced its awesome beauty first hand. We
set up his not-for-profit organisation to take children to British coastlines to help them understand their role in protecting it for generations to come.
