£90raised of £200 target by 5 supporters

    Weʼve raised £90 to Help Scout Leaders take 20 Scouts to Nepal in 2018, where they will go on a trek and work with a charity to help build a village school.

    Funded on Friday, 3rd November 2017

    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.


    My name is Eric Critchley, I am the team leader for the Merseyside County Scouts Nepal Trek 2018. On the 28th March we will be taking a party of 40 Scouts and Leaders to Nepal, returning on the 15th April, 2018. The dual purpose of the visit is first to have the wonderful experience of trekking in a beautiful and challenging environment, and second to spend several days helping to build a school in the remote village of Ashrang, with the Mucchok Education Charity, in conjunction with Child Education Nepal UK. Both these opportunities may prove to be once in a lifetime experiences, or they may affect the course of our member's future lives.

    The overall cost of the trip is £2,000 per person. As the members of the party come from a variety of economic backgrounds, we have decided that we will achieve as much of each person's expenses as possible by fund-raising. Could you please consider making a donation to our funds, any addition would be gratefully received? Thank you.

      Hello Supporters, well, I've got £40 in my account and 20 days left to reach my target amount of £2000. I am generally pretty busy on the organisational side of our Scouts Nepal Trek, something needs attending to every day, it seems. No complaints, I interviewed for the post of Leadership Team and was honoured when they offered me the Team Leader's job (at the same salary level as every other job in Scouting!!). My wife has mixed feelings; it keeps me busy but I talk too much about it, well you would, the prospect is AMAZING! Take care, Eric.
