Weʼve raised £70 to provide a safe haven for the children in a community near Polokwane in South Africa to stop child abuse.

Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered nonprofit.
The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.
In November I, along with 15 others put the finishing touches to a Creche and Drop in Centre in a small village near Polokwane,. These buildings now provide a safe place for children to go whilst parents work and reduce the horrendous child abuse rates - 57% are abused because they have nowhere safe to go. These two buildings will take 100’s of children off the street and put them into safety aswell as a hot mean every day and somewhere they can keep the innocence of childhood.
This was a fantastic opportunity to give back to others who are less fortunate than us in the UK, which we all take for granted. Many of the group are mums and we are lucky to have found our Utility Warehouse businesses to allow us to work flexibily around our children so we can be with them after school. These children do not have that luxury and as a result are put in danger.
By providing these basic facilities our vision is to leave a legacy by creating a 'ripple effect' of change too.
For my part, I am organising a firewalk for upto 40 people, which alone will challenge your self belief of walking 10-12 feet on hot coals. Overcome your fears and break through your own internal barriers.
Please donate generously by giving below or joining me on the firewalk at The Clophill Centre, Shefford Road, Clophill, Beds. MK45 4BT
The cost will be £35 (and ideally raise some sponsorship - though not compulsary) and will include a seminar on how to let go of limiting beliefs and empower you to do this and anything else you want to in your life.
