Weʼre raising £2,000 to support Coventry Young Ambassadors on their trip to Japan in November 2019
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.
We are raising money to support our Young Ambassadors on their forthcoming trip to Japan in November 2019 where they will be representing Coventry. We are very grateful to the Daiwa Foundation http://dajf.org.uk/ for their sponsorship of this trip.
Monies raised will be used to provide a broad range of cultural opportunities to the Ambassadors and allow them to learn about Toyko 2020 Olympics and Paralympics.
The ten young ambassadors who have been chosen for this trip are aged 10-11 and go to Howes Primary School, Finham Primary School, Broad Heath, Park Hill Primary School and Stivichall Primary School.
Coventry Young Ambassadors are children from Coventry primary schools who have been selected and trained to represent their city at cultural and sporting events. The programme was launched in February 2018 and it is supported by a number of organisations including the City of Culture, the Japan Foundation, London and the Sasakawa Foundation. The programme seeks to give the children leadership opportunities and the chance to be ambassadors for their city.
Look out for the friendly faces of Coventry Young Ambassadors at European City of Sport and City of Culture events in Coventry.
