£3,790raised of £2,000 target by 85 supporters

Weʼre raising £2,000 to set up a bursary in Didi's name for St Peter Claver school, Kroonstad, South Africa.

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.


Before she died, Didi (Mercedes) decided that she would like a bursary to be set up in her name at St Peter Claver school, Kroonstad, South Africa. This is a school run by Notre Dame nuns, offering education to children living in extremely challenging circumstances. Didi's first conection with the school began in the 1970s when she was still at school herself, and used to go to St Peter's to play music with the children. The bursary will be used to pay the very modest school fees for children who would otherwise be unable to attend school.
