Weʼre raising £250 to Help Danny get to Peru in 2019

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.


Danny has the fantastic and life changing opportunity of going to Peru for four weeks in summer 2019 with Camps International to help the local community with building and environmental projects. He will be helping with projects such as improving local schools, building toilets or planting food crops. In order to do this he needs to raise money to fund his trip and contribute to the community projects he is involved in.

To do this he has decided to challenge himself and take part in the Ross Warland Memorial Canal Challenge. This 20 mile race is held in memory of Ross Warland and other young people who did not have the opportunity to reach their full potential in life. Ross, who died of bone cancer in February 2000 at the age of 21, was an active and popular member who first joined Banbury and District Canoe Club when he was 8 years old. When no longer able to paddle he devoted his time to coaching and training the club members. His attitude and courage towards his illness was an inspiration to all those that met him. Danny will be doing 10 miles of the race as a relay, with his parents doing the other 10 miles.

Please sponsor him to encourage him to complete the distance - in the cold November weather (and his parents of course!) and get him to Peru.

He will be completing further challenges, along with his A-levels in the next 8 months - we will keep you posted. Thank you in advance!
