Weʼve raised £745 to help school children in South Africa as part of The South African Schools' Project. My first challenge I've set is to walk up Snowdon!

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 selected to visit South Africa as part of The South African Schools' Project. In October 2017 I shall be visiting several township schools and helping the staff there provide some exciting activities for the children. We, the visitors, must plan beforehand and take resources with us for our own ideas.... I am planning to do sports, games and craft.
We also have to raise and take over funds to provide scholarships for township children who show academic promise.
My target is to raise £2500 during this coming year. I have already carried out some small fund raising events. My first big event is a sponsored walk up Snowdon on Thursday October 27th 2016. Mum, Aunty Sarah, Andy and my friend Alice are walking with me (and maybe one of my teachers and her husband). Nanny, Uncle Richard and Zoe will be cheering!
Please help me help those children. If you donate whatever you feel you can I shall be most grateful. Just click on the DONATE button on this page.
