Weʼre raising £2,980 to help our youngest daughter ‘Ellie’ to take part in a World Challenge, traveling to India to volunteer and stay in a local community.
- Thetford, UK
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.
This is an adventure of a life time and an experience that Ellie will never have the opportunity to do again. Through World Challenge Ellie will learn important skills like budgeting, working as part of a team and team leading, orienteering.
Ellie will live within a small community and help them with repairs/rebuilds to help restore their daily lives, Ellie will also be able to support students with their learning in their school, sharing what she has learnt and also learning about them, their culture and experience first hand their way of life.
During this expedition Ellie will also trek through the dense jungle foothills of the Himalayas, visit the Jim Corbett National Park and also visit the majestic Taj Mahal.
Ellie knows this challenge is not going to be easy and knows that she will be on the other side of the world, away from her family, friends, mod cons and luxuries that we all take for granted on a day to day basis.
As Ellie’s parents we believe she can do this, to help to make a difference and we also hope that the experiences will impact her life and her future in a positive way.
Please help us to raise the funds needed.

My name is Ellie and I am really excited about this challenge. I am trying hard to raise the funds by donating part of my Birthday and Christmas money, cake sale's and also doing odd jobs for friends & family. Please help me raise funds for this experience of a lifetime.
