£440raised of £1,500 target by 10 supporters

    Weʼve raised £440 to travel with a group from Calderglen High school to work with children at our partner school, Mountview High, Cape Town, South Africa

    East Kilbride, Glasgow, UK
    Funded on Sunday, 7th October 2018

    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.


    We are a group of twenty, 6th year pupils and three staff members from Calderglen School who are raising money to visit our partner school, Mountview High, in Cape Town, South Africa in February 2019 to work with the children in the school. I will benefit by getting a better understanding of the value of education while engaging with children who are from a less fortunate community and reaping the reward of satisfaction of helping others.

    We have been tasked with raising £1500 each. This will go towards the travel costs , help to pay some of their school fees and hopefully take some of the children to local attractions that they would not normally get the opportunity to do. We will also be taking school supplies to improve their learning environment.

    Basically, the more that we can raise, the more that we can do. So I will be kicking off my fundraising by taking part in the 10K 'Run the Blades' on 20 July and would be grateful if you could sponsor me and share my page.

      Tomorrow, I will be running the 10k ‘Run the Blades’ as part of my efforts to raise my target of £1500 towards Cape Town Connections 2019 trip to Mountview High School in South Africa. I have trained for this but have not actually ran a full 10k yet and would feel very encouraged and grateful if you could sponsor me for any amount that you can. Please go to my Just Giving page, thanks.
