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.
I have been a father for 10 years now, and more than ever I understand the need for education to give children an opportunity in life. We are fortunate in western society that we have this gift of education, but in other parts of the world, this isn't so freely available. I endeavour to raise awareness and sponsorship by going on a 7 day canoe safari in 2018 along the crocodile infested Zambezi river and my aim is to raise at least £15,000 in order for 10 children to be gifted an education in rural Zambia. This endeavour will be a very basic affair, camping under the stars with the African wildlife all around me, hoping I don't get eaten by anything..!
Please donate whatever you can, so we can make a huge difference to the lives of a few children.

About the fundraiser
Derby, United Kingdom
My first career was as an actor which I did for around 10 years, but my big break never came so I had to get a proper job! So I have made my path in the motor trade and am currently a business manager at Mercedes Benz of Derby. I am married with a 10 year old daughter.
