£430raised of £750 target by 16 supporters

    Weʼve raised £430 to help fund my Expedition to South India and giving you the chance to win £50!

    Westbury, UK
    Funded on Friday, 10th August 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.


    On 14th July 2018 I will be taking a big step outside of my bedroom and my comfort zone as I embark on an expedition to South India with Outlook Expeditions. Unlike many other trips run by schools, myself and a team of students will be challenged before we even leave because we have to raise our own funds to pay for the expedition through jobs and various fundraising events. Our parents aren’t allowed to pay for this. We also have to take responsibility for organising all our own transport, accommodation and budget whilst in India.

    During this experience we will be helping out at a centre for disadvantaged children and will be helping to build a toilet block to improve the centre and working with the children who live there.

    I know this is a great opportunity. I look forward to experiencing the incredible culture of India and explore a completely different world to my normal life at home.

    All the money fundraised will be used to cover the cost of the 2 week trip including flights, training and accommodation. I need to raise overall £2695. My three part-time jobs will cover £1200 and I’m trying to raise the remainder through fundraising.

    Now, the chance of winning £50! I have a 100 square grid and you can choose a number from 1 to 100 at £5 each. The person with the winning number, to be drawn on 1st August, will receive £50! You can buy as many numbers as you like to increase your chances (and pay more than £5 if you’re feeling really flush!) We’ll keep updating the grid as often as we can as numbers are taken so please check on here to see if your chosen number(s) is available. If it’s not available, we’ll let you know as soon as we can so you can choose another.

    **** If you're buying a number, please state your chosen number(s) in the comment box when making the donation. ****

    Your support is very much appreciated.

    Thank you so much.
