£200raised of £500 target by 6 supporters

Weʼre raising £500 to support the children's space in Ritsona refugee camp - Greece ,through Lighthouse Relief, and help improve children's lives in the camp.

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.


Hello! My name is Claire Whiteley.

Having recently lost my job ( which presents new opportunities) I am now about to start voluntary work at Ritsona Refugee camp in Greece. I will be working with Lighthouse Relief in the children's space in the camp. Whilst there I will be raising money to buy resources for the women and children from shoes and gloves ( for people who arrive with nothing) to arts and craft materials and toys for the children's space. This space gives the children a chance to play and simply be children after surviving war, being forcibly displaced and travelling to find refuge. The children's space provides some normality where the children can both learn and play. The funds raised will be used to buy whatever is needed whether this is finger paint and paper or food and clothes.

I will regularly update this page and my blog with how funds raised are being used.
