- Funded on Thursday, 22nd June 2023
Don't have time to donate right now?
Help Northern Lights get to the ICCA 2023 Final in New York!
We are Northern Lights A Cappella, Durham University’s multi-award winning, competitive a cappella group. We are currently enjoying our tenth year as a group, and are thrilled to say that we won the UK semi-final of the International Championship of Collegiate A Cappella (ICCA) which means we will now be representing the UK in the Final in New York in a month's time!
This is extremely exciting for us, and is a first in Northern Lights’ history! However, this incredible opportunity will come at a huge cost for us, and this is where we’re asking for your help. We are already overwhelmed by the messages of support we have received since our win and are incredibly grateful to Durham University who are looking at ways they can contribute financially. The money you donate would go towards travel within New York, accommodation, rehearsal spaces, and probably lots of other hidden expenses which we haven’t even thought of yet! In addition, the society will need to spend money reserved for our Edinburgh Fringe run in August on New York, so we also need financial support to ensure we don't lose what is shaping up to be our most ambitious Fringe run yet!
We have been working so hard over the past few days to get everything booked and sorted, but a lot of what we can do relies on how much money we will be able to raise! As Generation 10, we have already had an outstanding year, setting a British record of 444 points at our ICCA quarter final, winning the Open A Cappella Competition, receiving 4 CARA nominations and even going viral on tiktok, but we truly have never needed your support more, and cannot say enough how grateful we would be to anyone who can help make this final part of the dream come for us!
Please share this fundraiser with anyone who might be willing to help, and we promise to do the UK proud at the New York Final!
So, SO much NL love x
